Mein Auto: 2007 X3 3.0si
Poor reception/Sirius XM satellite radio

Hi guys! I have an '07 X3 3.0si and my fifteen-year-old Hyundai had better reception than the factory antenna on the X3.

I can't seem to go 10 minutes without a cut in the signal. Weak signal throughout the city, that is pretty nuts. Is there a better antenna made for our cars?

Check for loose antenna wire connection at the back of the head unit.

The Sirius antenna connects to the Sirius module and that's in the trunk.

Phew! I thought I had to pull the radio out for this. I will look in the back! It's by the bluetooth module, I assume.
