I have service records going back to day 1 on one of my q's (an '88 90Q),
and I discovered Audi had a kind of 'secret warranty' on poor radio
reception.  According to these records, if you complained enough you would
be 'approved' for a fix, which was an Audi factory-approved dealer
installation of an external, telescoping electric antenna.  The original
owner of my car complained for about six months, through 3-4 service visits,
and finally had the fix done (as well as the radio replaced) on it under the
3-year warranty back in 1989.

Since this was an Audi approved change, official information about it
(measurements, etc.) must be somewhere.  The antenna was installed in the
rear driver's side fender and replaced the rear window antenna.  The front
antenna was kept as-is.  Let me know if you want any more specific
