    £77 for an aerial base?

    Phoned Vauxhall there to see about getting a new aerial base and the guy said, yes that's £77 mate. GULP okkay thats a bit steep, he agreed.

    Tried ebay, vauxparts, autovaux, and a few random sites, however i cant seem to get one anywhere. My rubber seal is all tatty and it draws your eye to it every time i wash it, so its got to be replaced.

    Any hints would be appreciated

    Thanks,

    Paul

    You could try a breakers yard..? its a long shot but you may find a base in 'as good' condition
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    None of the sharkfins will have the washer jet.
    The aerial has an amplifier built into it, hence the price, plus the rubber gasket isn't listed seperately on the parts listing.
