Where to get Antenna Adapter?
Does anyone have any idea where I can find an antenna adapter for my e36?

I got one off ebay a while ago and haven't been able to get decent reception at all and figured it was the actually antenna being shotty.

So I pulled the deck out and fiddled with it and if I wiggle the antenna plug around I can get it to be crystal clear.

So I just need a new adapter that works.

I have VERY bad reception in my car too, but didnt think to question something as simple as the addaptor! Thanks for pointing this out...I'll have to check mine tomorrow. I had several of them just sitting at the shop...

Yeah, I wiggled it around and it got a bit better. Than I found I had to bend the wire around and force it in certain ways lol. It seems like the rod that goes into the adapter isnt making contact. So I have to bend the end of the wire a lot to get it to touch. But it wont stay that way.

My reception is finally good.
