After getting the new spoiler on it now fouls the arial when i lift the hatch so now have to have a serious think about shark fins style arials. its not really what i want......something that looks like a nuclear submarine floating on the roof.....but ive seen a design i like.

do they all work on the same principle, is it just a casing for a signal booster with an arial lead fed off to go to the head unit?

VC Dude,

yeah they pretty much all work the same, they use the roof of the car as the earth and then they can be powered witrh a switched 12v feed that amplifies the sxignal when on, but they do work wuite well without the feed. What've you seen big man?

as spotted on my dads Volvo V50 estate:



less like a submarine than the VW one, not as odd as the bimmer one and not as cheesy looking as the ebay ones. not seen one on a golf yet either. already put in a call to the volvo parts department and just waiting a call back
