    Default Shark Fin

    Hi All

    Firstly thanks for looking.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/WORKING-SHARK-...1%7C240%3A1318

    I have seen a few shark fin ariels on ebay ( look at link ) but im not too convinced with them, i put one on a mates car and all was fine until he drove in built up areas or through the town, the signal was crap.
    Does anyone have a shark fin, and 3 questions:-

    How good is the signal compared to the original ariel
    Where did you buy it from
    How much do good ones cost.

    Cheers
    Pete

    I believe Ian T has one but I am sure his reception got worse with it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    a lot of cars have them now tho, volvos have them also so they aint just for bmw's, its like the indicators in the mirrors should they just stay in merc's?? once a company does something its not long till others follw suit is it.. i quite like the shark fins i think they look a lot tidier and flow with the car better, each to their own tho eh

    i think bmws are powered amplified aerials. would be better off removing aerial completely and getting powered windscreen aerial stuck on rear quarterlight window.
