Sharkfin

Post by Scotty_b » Sun Jun 23, 2019 12:33 am

Time to buy a Sharkfin aerial. I'll buy a dummy to replace this:

However, will I lose anything by getting rid of it?

My car has/had Dab and Onstar but no nav. There is an aerial in the rear window and a small box under the plastic boot panel.

I've read a few other threads to no avail.

I fitted a dummy sharkfin as the DAB aerial is in the rear window. You lose FM but no loss to be honest.

Only thing I lost was the FM radio.

Hardest part was putting it on straight.
