I'm having two problems with the new stereo I just put in an 89 535i I just bought. I had the same probs with an 89 525 I used to have, but this time I want to solve them. Does the factory antenna run through the factory amp? I removed the amp, and now get zero reception. Also, all locations in the car cause ground loop noise (alternator whine) in the system if the gain is above min. on the new amps. I've tried many ground points, routes for the rca cables, twisted pair interconnects, loop isolators, etc. Has anyone else had this problem and solved it? E-mail please, thanks.
