    Apologies as I'm sure this has been discussed many times but I can't find the thread.

    The DAB on mine isn't great & granted I listen to the engine 90% of the time, but it'd be nice to have Planet Rock on now and again.

    Was there an arial replacement by MB or anything else to improve it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nige.

    There was a revised aerial amplifier and also several software updates. After all of this DAB reception in my 2015 E63 is now reasonable instead of hopeless.

    Thanks. Be interesting to know if my dealer knows anything about this. We'll soon see.

    It also depends on the signal being received. It is just a little weak in Blackpool.

    A software update sorted out the terrible reception on my car. It's fine now.

    I have poor reception in my W204. Its been in for a software update which hasn't fixed it, so going in for an amplifier replacement. Fingers crossed this fixes it
