    Default Shark fin fitment

    After having two aerials nicked (last time i was only parked out the house for four hours on a saturday afternoon...!) i've decided to a (hopefully) non nickable shark fin. looking at this one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/WORKING-SHARK-...3A1|240%3A1318 as it's the onlyone that looks big enough to fit over the satnav base, and i cant find a bolt on that is fm+gps. anyone fitted this or another onto the satnav base?

    Trying to find a pic, but the base has an extra lump at the front where the gps receiver sits.

    Is the radio reception any good on it? i just about get a signalwith no aerial, but dont get the traffic info and it looks a bit naff!

    It is a hatch, i'm planning on drilling through the back and putting a guide pipe in for the washer jet - don't know how successful that will be, but the washer is pretty rubbish anyway.
