    Heres mine, I modified the fin to include a washer in the back you can just see the hole. Took about a day to glue one from the front of an escort (i think) into the fin. In the picture it looks a different colour but it was taken last winter and the car is just realy dirty!!! And then there is a much more recent shot from further away..... Reception is rather poor though...

    see - told you.

    dont forget it depends on the reception strength before you start.

    did you hear about the two aerials getting married, the wedding was pants but the reception was great.

    I replaced mine for a bee sting one off fleabay. It affected the reception strength which also caused problems with the sat nav. Result - The sat nav didn't know there was a 3 hr jam on the motorway it took me on because i could not get the traffic info through the new aerial.

    I like the shark fin ones but stick with the original if you want the sat nav to work.
