Hi Guys,

Iv noticed that the radio reception (FM) is a bit rubbish in my 2001 Facelift E320 CDI.

Are there any ways to improve it?

Thanks in advance.

If your FM is rubbish...there is something wrong with the radio or antenna or connections. FM should be perfectly acceptable. AM.....RUBBISH.

The W210 has the worst AM radio I've heard since my circa 1958 crystal set.

I was just thinking the same way as Figuero. My FM is fine but AM is not so good. Ionly listen to FM so have never tried to troubleshoot my system.

As advised check the antenna, connections, and the radio in that order. BTW do you have a Becker or something else? You can also search and/or on the Audio & Telematics forum found in the technical section.

My 98 E300TD had horrible AM reception. I took it to a shop and had them install an external antenna in the rear fender. I get fantastic reception now. Cost about $100.00.

My 2001 E320 wagon had no AM reception but great FM. I simply tightened the connection at the amplifier and now it is perfect.
