: I too have a 98 540i but mine is an automatic. The AM reception is awful, much worse than that in my 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I talked to the dealer in Seaside CA and he checked the amp at the rear window but found nothing wrong. I too am at a loss as to a corrective action.
: I've never received very good reception on my AM Radio on my '98 540i 6-spd. I've visited a number of dealerships and they say AM recieves interference from the ABS brake system...and that BMW is aware of the problem but, doesn't have any solutions.

: Anyone here know what to do??

: Black / Grey Sport Seats
: 6-speed
: Navigation system
: Dinan chip & cold air intake
