New airel arrived and fitted. Looks like piano black,nice and shiny :D
I've found that one (23456362) from GPS £76.55 and thinking of replacing mine

Did you have to specify the colour you wanted or is that part number 23456362 specifically for a black painted one?

That screen shot she sent me was airels for my car. Carbon flash my colour code is. The top part number was a plain plastic one. The middle one changed its part number to the bottom one. It looks 99% the same colour as the car. You don't have to tell them your paint code, just order that part number. Think it's the same colour as them plastic trim pieces near the boot on both sides. Looks factory now though,better than that paint job I put on it.

Took a look at my car and found this. Is the Original stock antenna without Onstar.

I guess that the ACDelco 23456362 shark fin won't fit, as it has a different type of connector.
Any ideas?

It probably won't fit then if the wire connectors are different.

Has anybody successfully changed their antenna to a shark fin type?
I have read through the whole thread but got a bit lost :roll:

Don't think it's possible if you haven't got a shark fin to start with. The easiest way to tell if it will fit is looking at the wires. You'll need a brown connection plug what two wires plugs into.

I'll have a look see what connections on mine in the week

Any joy with fitting your leather center console yet?
