    Default Radio antennas

    Noticed at our 1st welsh meet the radio "Bsting" antennas are all different lengths. Mines a 52 plate and compared to another 52 plate elegence model with the same radio equipment his aerial was shorter but about 2 inches I would say .

    Anyone else noticed this at your meetings ?

    I have fitted a shorter type which belongs to the VXR 220. There about a tenner but are much shorter and neater. Simple to fit by unscrewing the original and rescrewing the new one. I would guess that the one you saw at the Welsh meet will have been one of the 220 ones? They are also available on ebay in a chrome version.

    No Paul , the guys car was bought ni on new and the antenna was never changed . Just a lot of things that never seem to amaze me with the C , people may have same years and models but different things where added or taken away when built .I just imagine the people that built them saying "ooooooh lets confuse everyone and put this on instead of this".

    Ok maybe Im just a sad git , probably needs to get out more ,You DONT have to agree to that comment either !

    Could have maybe put it down to dab or nav, but if it's as you say from new then i'm lost! Only time you ever notice different aerials is when nav or dab is fitted. Dare i say someone could have nicked his original and replaced it with a different one!
