    07 STi Static

    ive been meaning to post this 2 months ago but i always forget to. so i have an 07 sti, the 2nd day i had the car i tinted the windows. took it to the dealership to see what was going on with my radio (Not 1 station comes in clear, really static like, and ill even hear another station intertwine with it.) the dealership says the radio frequency waves or pretty much the antenna is inside the windows, and if theres any metallic in the tint the radio will be really crappy. they said no signs of metallic in my windows and didnt do anything about the situation. what do you radio buffs think is going on with this???

    Go back to whoever tinted your windows and ask if the tint is radio friendly.

    3m and some other major name brand companys have tint that wont mess with the radio...You probaly have one that does mess with the radio.
