I don't know about TOP, but many local AM stations suck in the X, but sound fine in my wife's '99 Accord with rear-window antenna. Not helping the situation at all is the buzzing sound that the electrical system creates in the radio. Even my '93 Ford Explorer has a better AM (heck, FM, too!) radio than the X. I'm thinking that some forum members have replaced the X's antenna with a longer VW antenna, but I haven't done a SEARCH to verify.
