Does anyone know how to delay or get rid of the time display on the radio. Radio stations in my area use RDS to transmit the artist and song name, but the TIME keeps cutting off the display.

Is there any way to delay the time display or get rid of it on the radio?

On my business CD there is a little clock painted on the minus button under the volume control knob. Wait until the time is displayed and press this button it should turn the time display priority off so that the station and song title are displayed. If this does not work it may be a dealer activated preset.

I have the business CD Radio as well. I just press the clock button as well (upper left hand corner).
Do you have the Business CD Radio?

Yes, worked like a charm - seems like kind of a silly question now...

My only excuse is that I bought the car used and it came with no Business CD manual...

I have a Business CD in my 2001 Bimmer and the speaker panels on the doors have Harmon Kardon labels. Is this the 'upgraded' stereo, or a base-line unit that is in all 2001's? (325CI convertible, btw)

Pics whenever I get it really clean... B)

H&K is upgraded stereo, the only real difference is it has 2 DSP subs (?) in the rear deck with the speakers.

Thanks for the info, Killfox. I'm still trying to decide if I like the auto-volume on the stereo, but even with the top down doing 80 mph, I can crank the stereo enough to enjoy the tunes...so I can't complain.

Sometime soon I'm going to detail the whole car complete with clay-baring her and probably using the Zaino polishes to make her look like she's supposed to.

Gotta find time to down a few pints as well, though!!
