[s-cars] Disabling dashboard clock self-adjust feature

The clock in my 2001 S8 keeps resetting itself (incorrectly) based on time
signals which it picks up from neighboring time-zones.  Does anyone on the
list know how to go about disabling this feature?  I would be totally happy
setting the clock manually like my forefathers did.

My local Audi dealer first refused that such a self-adjusting clock even
existed but have now agreed that my Audi might have what they referred to as
a "radio clock".  They have offered to track down an antenna and disconnect
it (breaking something in the process), but I can not believe that this is
the only way to disable this.  Heck, the alarm clock on my nightstand has
the same self-adjust feature which can be disabled by holding down two
buttons at once.

Thanks for any tips.
