My wife's 89 100 Avant, has a similar problem. All the push buttons
are very touchy. As in if you blow on it it will change the station....
well almost :-) Yup, touch the volume control and it may increase volume
or shut the radio off....... Debating on swapping my radio from the 100
sedan into her car and putting a CD deck in mine :-)

I have to dissagree here, I think it sounds great for a STOCK radio
Then again it may be just the interior acoustics. I believe I read
somewhere when audi was redesigning the interior for 89-91 models they
worked with Bose on the acoustics as well. I could use more power though.
While cruising on the highway at autobahn speeds with the sunroof open
it can barely keep up with the extra windnoise.

Andrew, I must admit I always check to see what the cat has to say :-)
