    I very nearly bought one of these for my silver Astra, I'm still undecided too.

    Like the shape of it, but I think it would look better painted the same colour as the base.

    Me no likey.
    For some reason it reminds me of these

    From Little Britian USA

    I have a short Vauxhall one.

    Looks standard, so doesn't get nicked, plus it still gets a good reception.

    looks chavy silver (like all silver aerials do)

    spray it back or (anthracite) and it looks much better IMO




    the radio reception is total shit tho
