after market stereo question

i purchased an after market stereo and get terrible reception. i was told the reason why is that my rear window is tinted and interferes and that the only options i have are to either install an exterior antenna or remove the tinting. does anyone have any other suggestions? are the dolphin type antennas that bmw uses in the newer models available to install on the older models?

It would look more appropriate to install and m3 roof antenna. Fubas are pretty cheap. They do sell antenna amplifiers. That might solve your problem.
