Satellite Radio Poor Reception

I have had three e65/66 and one F01/02 and all had satellite radios.

However, I noticed that aside from the relatively poor sound quality, the satellite radio in my current 750Li cuts in and out all the time. Like, going under trees or bridges causes a dropout.

Now, all of my seven series, former and current had the same problem.

Can you guys confirm that your satellite radios cut in and out too?

What's frustrating is that my wife's x1 has a satellite radio that sounds better and doesn't cut out anywhere near as much as the satellite radio in my seven series.

Yes, it does cut out under the trees, brides etc noticeably more than average. It feels like it has a smaller streaming buffer and obstacles affect it more as the result.
