How about buying a booster or rewiring you ariel back to the roof? I'm glad you have mentioned this BTW... I was thinking about the tint too :shock: Not too sure now as i ALWAYS listen to the radio :?:

just to point out you can still get FM but no AM or MW ,no good for listening to footy.

Strange, thought that would work as the arial woud be on the outside of the tint!
If FM is ok why not the rest???? as the signal is coming from outside the car?????????????
