My point is, after pulling down does it put a crease in headliner. Mine is black headliner, don't know if there's any difference

I have the black headliner too and it didn't crease mine. It's more flexible than you think. Need to get photos of my painted antenna base on here. Turned out very well!

If you go back a few pages someone recommended it. But it doesn't fit the k. It for a different car. To many wires,smaller and wires wouldn't clip in. I should of asked gps first but thought this guy knows what he's on about. Put the bottom part number into google and it comes up with the right one. Looks painted and same shape and wires. Just gunna order this one.

I had a stubby one off eBay for my H and it fit fine, no damage, slightly less signal. But some scally stole it one day! Replaced it with my old one and that is still on the car to this day, no problem with the thread or alteration in original signal.
The thread on the aerial I had on my Astra H is to small for the K, which I found annoying to say the least.
Would love a shark fin but way to much bother for me.
