No A8 has any turbos, not even the S8.
What year A8 do you have? Do you still get AM and FM radio?

It sounds like a bad ground. I take it it's a stock unit?

If your mechanically inclined you shouldn't have to bring it in. I've never fideld with the radio on the A8, but all you should have to do is locate the ground for it. Most cars have a really lousy ground on the radio. I would relocate it to a spot somewhere are on the frame or the inside of a body pannel.
