    Radio Service

    Can anyone recommend a place in Northern Virginia for service on the '96 328 "factory" radio?

    Woody,

    It might be a cheaper to pick a used one in working order than to have one repaired. Maybe someone has one lying around that they will part with real cheap. As long as you have the code.

    I have the same car and my radio display is really only visible at night. So if you find a cool place to pick a used one up let me know.

    In the spring I am going to send mine to Dr. Don's radio repair if I don't find a suitable replacement.

    I think they're in TX so you'll be relying on Fedex or OOPS to get it there. They came recommended by Bimmer magazine after I dropped them a line via e-mail. I haven't used them yet as I am not crazy aboutnot having a radio for a couple days but sometime before the summer I plan to do it.

    I just found a great used radio out of a 98 so I won't be sending anything to Dr. Don's just yet. I want to see how this other one pans out. I plan to install it saturday afternoon.
