    Question Astra shark fin aerial (like BMWs)

    Anyone ever seen one of these fitted to an astra?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-VAUXHALL-O...item518ce807d6


    As stated this one is a non-working aerial and just for style but they say they sell working ones but i have not found one of their working ones listed for astras.

    Can you get working ones? I think they look great and better than a flexible pole sticking out the roof

    Peoples thoughts?

    personally when it comes to radio reception i like an aerial that actually works as opposed to a lump of plastic on the roof

    each to their own though!

    i should imagine the so called functioning ones have little to zero reception and thus best avoided

    i dont see how it is any more 'gay' as you seem to put it as a long stick poking out the roof?

    I just think they look shan, even on BMWs. Each to their own. Can't ask for thoughts and not accept them Also Geordie makes a good point about reception, although I have nil experience with them.

    I'm almost sure there is someone on here with one but can't think who.

    As far as changing ariels goes, you could go down the shorter route? Civic, C2 ariels, etc. Although the shorter the ariel, the worse the reception really. I had a C2 ariel for a week and I got pretty much zero reception.
