Help Me Install Business Radio and Take Out Avin Avant 2 And Buy It From Me Cheaper

I bought an 01' E46 M3 Convertible and the previous owner installed an aftermarket headunit/nav system by Avin (Avant 2). Really nice but the AM/FM signal does not come in. Complete static.

EDIT: At this point, I have decided to put the car back to stock with the business radio. If anybody near me is good enough to take out the Avin Avant 2 and install the OEM business radio, I'll sell you the Avin Avant 2 at a discounted rate for helping me. I still have the original box. Any takers?

If you're not too scared with pulling the radio and parts out a tad, I would make sure to reseat the antenna connection in the back of the head unit and trace this cable to the back of the car where it plugs into the OEM system. could be pinched or broken.
Also check in the driver side rear pillar to make sure the antenna connections are all snug.

Lastly aftermarket radio reception is usually worse than factory

Hmm, I might be interested in this. I installed the original Avin Avant in my ZHP myself, but the Avant 2 might be nice to have. I also have my OEM business radio if you'd like to do an install + trade + cash on my end. Please PM me a price.

Alright boys - I found somebody local that is willing to take out the Avin Avan 2 and put back the OEM business radio for me so the Avin will just be for sale as he already has a Dynavin Nav. PM me if you want to make an offer.

It's coming out on Sunday or Monday so when I get everything back in the box, I will come up with a price. I did a search and most of them in gently used condition go for $600+ so perhaps right around there or slightly less if I am in a good mood lol
