Radio & DAB Signal Issues...

Has anyone had or is currently having issues with their radio?

My old fella has a 2013 plate 116i Sport, which came with a DAB radio as standard.

It's developed an issue if losing signal frequently, although it is sporadic. This was limited to the DAB stations, until recently, where it now also affects the FM stations.

It's covered under the extended warranty with Williams, but they're unable to locate any issues. Which is very frustrating.

Any experiences of this, and solutions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

It could be a split in the Ariel wire which is actually mounted in the back window glass.
Mine failed, and the signal was lost every time I put the rear window heater on, then came on again when turned off. I had a new back window put in at BMW main dealer under my warranty.
But I still lose dab signal in certain places which bugs the hell out of me
