Hi guys .Does anyone know if the radio specs are different on the 90 as I can not find the function when you change band or source....or is this a fault ?

Are you talking about a new (post 2011) C4 with factory fitted DAB radio?

Hi the car was bought yesterday from the garage ex-demo, it was first registered 24 11 2011 I am not sure if it is fitted with a DAB radio, when I select band I only see FM1, FM2, AM.

That would suggest it is not fitted with DAB.

C4's and DS4's only started having DAB fitted from the factory this year so a 2011 car won't have it. If you want a DAB radio you could have the AutoDab system added as I have on my DS4. I'm very pleased with it.

A C4 with a warranty start date of November 2011 is unlikely to have DAB as standard, and quick check shows you have the standard RD5.

If you mean scratch-card like card, they stopped issuing those ages ago. It's all linked to your VIN.

I got DAB in my new selection...you press the BAND button to change station frequencies and for DAB.
bit of a letdown to be honest, reception can be jumpy compared to FM, and it does not allow use of Traffic Alerts with DAB on (so not much benefit as I need TA on!)
