    Question Radio Reception

    So I just got an 09 WRX Premium with navigation and the radio sounds ok I guess with a cd but the FM sucks I was wondering if maybe buying the Perrin Shorty antenna would maybe make it better or even getting an fm booster might help? Also if anyone has this same setup what are your sound settings?

    Metallic window tint can interfere with FM radio reception.

    OP, take it back to the dealer and have them look at at. You just gave them a lot of money for a brand new car, everything should perform to your satisfaction.
