: 350 miles, dead radio

Well, I picked up my X3 yesterday at the performance center (long post on the Roadfly message board, which I'd be happy to cut and paste here if people have interest; overall, it was great), and on my way home from South Carolina, the radio cut out.

I was listening to FM, and the sound went away, came back, went away, came back, and then was gone for good. No sound from radio stations, no sound from CD. All had been working normally prior to that. I still get some hiss when I turn things wayyy up, and I can change radio stations and get the RDS data, so I don't think it's a power problem, but no sound.

Anybody else had something similar happen? I have the premium stereo and nav....

my radio reception sucks! I lose even the most powerful stations here in DC. I think I recall seeing that there was a Technical Service Bulletin on the radio - not sure that it relates to either of our problems, but I'll try to get it.

Always nothing but static noise on L st. east of Conn Ave.
