If they do it like they used to do it, (aka my 20V) they have the wire in
the front windscreen, and use part of the rear defogger array for am. It
actually works remarkably well. I get stations in New Haven (CT) with
this car that I couldnt with my 4000. Im sure electronics have a lot to
do with that as well. The stereo that came with the 4000 was this
***AWFUL*** blaupunkt. Im sure a better head unit would have helped.
