Has anyone had really bad and intermittent radio reception in there car. Recently purchased CPO and the radio does not work well at all or sometimes it works very poorly.

I tried searching through the forum but could not find anything pertaining to the 7 Series.

Are the antennas in the glass? If so was any metallic window tint added to the car?

Also, another thing to check is the connection from the antenna to the radio could be loose.

Where is the connection from the antenna to the radio? Information would be very helpful.

Thanks In Advance

Antenna is the "shark fin" on the top of the car I believe. I don't know about the connection to it.

no, you are wrong. shark fin is used only for cell phone and gps - not fm. fm antenna is inside the C pillar:

If your car is 2002 or 2003, you have 100,000 miles warranty. Use it. Dealer will fix it for you. We would just offer you wild guesses.
