    Improve radio reception

    MY 2009 Sportback is fitted with OpenSky and Concert2+ incl Bose.
    Trouble is the radio reception is so bad, it's like a 1970's car.
    I think the antenna is part of the heated rear window.

    Any suggestions on how to improve on this?

    Get a new rear window !

    Common fault - you can test by switching rear screen heater on and off. Get's worse when heater is on.
