Lol interestng. Since buying mine in 2008, I've never used the radio tuner so I'm not sure if mine displays the station.

When ever you advance your station selection with the steering wheel button it shows you what station you have preset. The WAVE was in San Diego 30 years ago. Must still be there.

The earlier models did not do this, thus some members being a bit confused/shocked. Its a nice later year feature, can also easily be retrofitted to the earlier models so if this is an early model its a good sign the owner was a "good" type of enthusiast - using the expensive OEM parts, versus cheap Dynavin stuff or etc...

Ha! I knew it did that for cd's when you use steering wheel buttons. Never knew it did that for radio. Thanks! Love how I'm still learning stuff about my car!

Mine is made 1998 and has this too. Maybe a Euro thing or the sound system used....

Pretty sure I have the radio station show up on the cluster like that. 09/99 build.

Than again, I have preface steering wheel still on and can't see the cluster unless I lean over. #prefaceliftproblems
