What is the problem with the radio. I was able to access the importer / service outlet out of the eastern US to to get a replacement unit when the LCD died. Simple change out and works perfectly.

I'm in the same boat as far as radio is concerned. I have heard there is a possible tuner adjustment located somewhere in the radio. Turn the screw and you can adjust the band range and get North American stations. I am still looking for better info before I pull the thing to look for the tuner.

There are 2 different frequency shifters on ebay. Have tried both and not worth the effort. Adds lots of static and fades in and out. Suppose it would depend on where you live..

Just buy a new deck and be done with it.

A friend of mine who owns an auto wrecker had mentioned to me most of the grey market cars he has wrecked the radios have had an adjustable tuner. He found this out because the radios would be useless to him for resale in Euro tune. He has yet to wreck a Euro R129 so I'm just going to do some more digging on the subject before I pull out the factory radio to locate the tuner. Thanks for the heads up on the e-bay tuners lets face it if you cant get good radio reception in Sask we out here would be S.O.L
