I noticed a discernible increase in signal quality after upgrading my head unit. maybe that's worth a shot. Try driving to your local Hi-Fi Buys (or equivalent) and ask them for advice.

The best bet hippy is to possibly opt for satallite radio, or buy some more cds.

I agree, I just got my 330ci today and the reception is far inferior to my last 323ci. Is there any reasonable explanation for this?

I have XM Satellite but some of the local stations here are surprisingly good so I still listen to them once in a while.
