Mein Auto: 1997 BMW 328i
I have the same problem with my 1997 328i radio display, and if you do a google search you'll see it's very common on our E36's.
My simple free trick is to carry a small flashlight in the glove compartment that I use to read the display by just shinning light on the display to read what station I'm on and for setting all of the stations. I discovered this one morning when the sun was shining directly on the radio and I could read the faded out display for the first time.
Try it, it works!
