    No direct experience of it, but just looking at it you are going to need a long extension lead to run from the aerial to the head unit, as the original wire is a screw fit connection. Plus you will have to re-route or block off the rear washer jet.

    If there is sufficient length left on the cable you might get a local ICE dealer who can fit a new aerial plug.
    Failing that the cable @ the head unit runs to a connection under the centre console by the handbrake before running to the roof of the car.

    I'm not sure of the exact route, just the info as above.
