    It's just a cover isn't it ?
    I did read a thread on another forum about fitting the insignia aerial to an astra but it did involve some soldering.

    I know, got one. Never been a fan of rear wind screen aerials, always concerned I'll damage the thing with the ammount of crud I have to carry at times.
    If you can solder shouldn't be too difficult

    just checked the one on astra forum.. well that arial the now use for radio is ment to be for the carphone..

    either the insignia have the radio in the rear windscreen or on a normal arial.. sharkfin is either for phone, gps (or both) or not used on the insignia.

    Thought the phone kit in the Insignia was bluetooth only (that's how I use mine), not seen any mention of a location for fitting a cradle to be able to use an external aerial like you could on the vectra.

    I'd assume that there was a gasket on the aerial base which sealed the whole thing to the roof when it's clamped down, not able to see mine properly from the front window and I ain't getting wet

    Boots huge can manage to get my 2's rubbish in it and still have my work stuff in there. Couldn't do that with the vectra, best boot by far was the signum, got a small wardrobe in there. Really like the sports tourer but it's boot looks tiny compared to the hatch,

    Got wet enough today thanks, going to get webbed feet if this carries on
