    you should be able to extend it and hide it down the c pillar and into the rear quarter panel ie with the base and mast,alternatively buy a interior screen mount aerial which is flat and sits on the screen or hidden,but note this would need to be powered up and earthed(halfords sell them)

    Probably top edge of the front window, just showing below the headliner. Then run the cables down the A-pillar, behind the glovebox to the head unit.

    Old style metal mast behind the bumper works very well

    Most places sell them.
    Ebay, Halfords and your local motor factors to name but a few.

    It works as well (If not better) than my short one on the roof.
