Poor Radio reception on Sportwagon

Need help to sort out the poor radio reception in my 156 sportwagon. Dealer has fitted a new M40 control box but this has not helped. Apparently this is a common fault and Alfa Tec are not saying what the solution is....Dealer has a long list of people with the same problem. Anyone know how this can be resolved?

Has yours got the beesting aerial or the one hidden in the spoiler? If the latter, it is quite frankly pants. Not a lot you can do. Sometimes a poor earth on the aerial, so have the dealer check that.

My Dealer just said the spoiler system does not work. With my permission he got a radio specialist in and fitted a roof aerial. No more problems.

It's a bit of a bummer though. My SW has the roof rails for good reason; I often have a canoe or a roofbox full fo skis on the roof. Any roof aerial is likely to get in the way so for the moment I'm putting up with the crap reception.

At some point I would like to put a DAB tuner in the car, so I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet at some point.

What sort of aerial was fitted in the end and where did they mount it?
