    Just changed mine, It was a 15mm square hole. That's on a 56 plate estate. I assume its the same for all.

    The reason it has such a large base is because I am assuming your car has the XP kit. If your car had a normal aerial base like mine (picture below), when the boot is open, the spoiler would be hitting onto the aerial itself and wouldn't open properly. The aerial base you have moves the aerial closer towards the front of the car so the spoiler doesn't hit onto it.
