    Default Does any Vauxhall Radio have long wave?

    Im looking for a Vauxhall factory fit double din radio that has long wave. Does anyone know if there is one?
    My Signum has a factory fitted CDR2005 which doesnt have LW (and isnt much good on MW either!) As I spend a lot of time driving in Germany I want to listen to Radio 4 on 198 long wave.
    Dont really want to go to the bother of getting an after market radio fitted, so ideally there is a Vauxhall radio that'll do the job?

    And the same for other manufacturers. LW disappeared from standard units when FM came out.

    Seems like this is not an option then so may have to shell out for an aftermarket unit.
    Have used an Alfa 147 and a Saab 95 over the past 12 months and both had LW along with MW an FM so some cars must still have LW radios installed. Maybe its a German thing to have dropped it.

    i had the jvc dab in my vec c and replaced it last week with the cd70 nav......everything worked on the jvc thru the steering wheel controls and it had fm/mw and lw on it......i enjoyed atlantic 252 on it.

    think this was the only 2 stations on lw - 198 and 252
