    I bought one of these because the rubber on mine had perished. Looks good, has 3 different lengths of center section, one of which isn't visible so it looks kinda like the one you're looking at and the reception seems to be unaffected

    The only problem with these is they are solid alloy ones with no flex. I want to try and stick with the oem style flexi one.

    mine was fine before with standard ariel untill some pikey **** decided to rob it that is!!

    maybe yours is knackered, the ariel fitment is pretty standard see if you can borrow one off a mates car and see if it improves, ariel off any vag car will fit, hondas and toyotas too i think

    The Civic aerial looks good and isn't bad no reception at all. Gets rid of that awful massive aerial supplied with most cars.

    Be interested to see if anyone has fitted a shark fin as fitted to the newer A4s etc . . . ?

    Just bought one from Motocare as suggested by Voorhees. Standard 40cm job. Will hopefully get AM reception now.
