Don't you loose any signal with it?
Thanks!
None at all. Pretty sure it's only for FM reception as the DAB aerial in in the back window.

I have ordered the same small ariel and there is 1-2mm gap at base... Should i be worried about water or is it just fine like it is?

The shark fin airel only has one connection wire not two so don't think it will fit.

And where is connected the other wire? (It should be the FM one, right?)

The shark fin has 1 wire and yours has 2. I think the connectors are different so they won’t plug in.

The roof aerial is for Onstar and FM with DAB in the rear window so a simple generic Sharkfin from Ebay would do the job if it's just for asthetics.
