    Its not exactly a sharkfin but iv got a richbrook one. There was a thread about them a little while ago. You can get them from most places, halfords ebay etc...
    It just screws into the original place so everything still works perfectly Takes about 30 secs to do, its anti-theft too

    None of the shark fins I've seen have had a washer jet for the rear screen, as on the vx ariel base fitted to hatchbacks. They'll be fine on a saloon (no rear wash/wipe), there's a thread somewhere, how2 possibly, by someone who fitted one, looked good. I was thinking of maybe moding one.

    If anyone finds any VERY low-profile shark-fins let me know. Got two holes in my ex-plod mobile. And I wanted to buy a couple of shark fins in it. Rather than trying to make it look like a police (which I really don't), I just fancied filling the grommet with silicone bath sealant holes (worse than it sounds).

    Don't think the shark fins have the rear washer jet in them.
