    radio repair

    The radio in my black Z8 went south, BMW wants $1200 plus labor to replace it. Does anybody know of a company that repairs them? I don't want to put something fancier in its place- with the top down the sound is what it is, and i like to keep the interior original.

    Sadly I haven't come across an old fashioned radio repair man who can fix these units, but you could try to see if you can find one through a breakers or maybe EBay.

    I tried the repair shop approach on my radio when it was suggested that the soldered connections give away over time. Unfortunately the re-soldered electrical connections didn't solve the radio failure. I would suggest going right to a remanufactured radio from BMW. Here's a helpful thread on this topic.
