i live and drive around the Los Angeles area and my AM radio reception is awful, does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve it. the FM is OK, not great. i don't know if i want the satellite radio, does it have local stations?

thanks in advance, this forum and site is awesome.

I recently purchased 1 1998 E430 Sport to travel in and I also notice a large difference in reception from the previously driven BMW. Is there a method known to test the amplifier in place? If not, does anyonew have a figure for the cost of the amp? Anyone know eher it is located?

Thanks,
Jim[?]

Is the amplifier normally covered under the StarMark extended warranty?

I check with the MB dealer, they quoted me about $16 for the amp.

Does anyone know how to replace the amp?

I had similar poor AM reception after having my windows tinted... The antenna is on the rear window and some tinting films have metalic content that blocks signal. The tinting company replaced the film with a non metalic film and now AM reception is ok.
