    The car must be fitted with the wrong ariel as the base of the ariel on a car with xp is different to the standard car (without kit) so that it does not hit the roof spoiler, maybe the kit was fitted after market and the ariel was not changed. The right ariel base is £60 ish from Vx. Jx

    All i no is that the car says sri-+ wich i thought was the 1 with the xp as standard?i have tryed a smaller ariel but it still marks the spoiler so its either get the base wot moves the ariel back around an inch or get a sharkfin ariel.would the sharkfin off the insignia give me a full signal?as the other base that i can have seems a little pricey,are these both straight replacements?.
