Further investigation points to my Alfa Spider as being from Japan. The FM band goes from 76 to 90 MHZ, whereas North America and Europe is 88 to 108 MHZ. In Japan, one can import a new car from an agent if there is no existing dealership network in Japan for that make of car.
I don't mind this ! Cars in Japan have to go through the a Vigorous Inspection to stay on the road. As the cars get 'older' , the license fees increase prohibitively and the cars are sold and exported. Keeps their economy going.
