    Hi everyone, have used this forum for advice plenty but never posted. Hope someone can help! I just installed a bluemagic bluetooth adapter - it plugs into the cd changer connections in the boot. Works great, but the radio reception (standard 2004 bmw business head unit) has gone to shit. I...

    Ok, I've checked the looms, all ok. Remote works from a good distance. Diversity antenna not full of water or any signs. Yet poor FM and AM reception. Before i spend silly money on a new diversity, has anyone had an issue with the rear screen? I can improve the reception by connecting a thin...

    Firstly, I apologise if these questions have been done to death, I've tried to use the search function but without much luck. 1. My unit/display has the dreaded loss of pixels: is there a recommended refurb specialist on this forum, or, is it just a case of replacing it with a new/refurbished...

    The reception is crap on my car radio. It's a bmw standard fit. I get radio 1 ok but the rest are fuzzy and struggle to get reception. What can I do? I need to boost the signal or get a different antenna source. What can I do? Anyone had this issue and fixed It?

    The central locking started to play up on the car ages ago. the remote locking would start to only work the closer I got to the car, then it was intermittent. then it stopped all together. The next thing was the car would no longer start with the key, it did crank but wouldn't start. Luckily I...

    The general radio reception on my car is pretty poor. On some days it seems to be better than others. Today i was on the m25 and it wouldn't even pick up radio 1 properly. Are there any common problems with these that i can check? Its a model equipped with idrive if that makes a difference...

    Recently bought an '03 330ci. It's got an aftermarket headunit in the form of a Kenwood KVT-725DVD. Unfortunately the radio reception is incredibly poor. I can just about pick up Radio 1 and on occasions I'll be lucky if it can pickup 1 more station. The HU is controllable from the steering...

    !8 months ago my E91 3 series Touring suddenly lost almost all radio reception, just getting a very weak signal on BBC Radio 4 only. I've managed to live with it so far. But yesterday both key fobs stopped locking / unlocking the car, although they both still open the doors manually and start...

    Hi Guys, I have an E61 and had the common issue of poor radio reception as well as no heated rear window. It didn't take long to see the usual suspect is the diversity antenna so I took off the rear spoiler only to see someone has siliconed it all up and once open it looked like new! while...

    The radio in my 2008 320d Touring E91 has always been fantastic until now. Last night I drove 5 miles and parked for an hour, then when I set off again the FM/AM reception had almost disappeared. My first thought was that somebody had vandalised the aerial while the car was parked, but there's...

    Hi All, Just picked up a 2006 M Sport Touring with the professional radio fitted and Bluetooth (my 200 mile daily commute in the E30 was hitting the wallet a little hard). Issue is that I cannot pick up any reception on any radio frequency AM or FM at all - just fuzz. Secondly, when I try to...

    My 2011 525d SE Touring has no trouble with my key, remotely locking or unlocking the car, but the radio has next to no FM reception at all. Nothing shows up in the FM list but AM works perfectly. However, I discovered that when opening the boot window, the reception improves massively (although...

    Hello, I have had my BMW around 2 years now and absolutely love it. However, the other day on my way to work the reception slowly muffled out and I couldn't find any stations under the manual search. I have since worked out I am picking up fm at home due to being ontop of a hill but as I go to...

    I know this has been covered thousands of times but after a Google search etc I haven't found an answer to my specific question. Will removing the CD changer affect the radio reception? I have seen threads hinting it will but haven't found anything certain. For information, the cd changer has...
