    yep it is true... it does what mine does!! just dont look like a bumper car! lol looks more modern i think. newer cars dont have foot long bits of wire hanging off there roofs! A subtal touch to the appearance of the motor me thinks!

    each to there own and all...

    works fine mate... all the pirates i listen to still work and they aint the most powerfull of stations!! Its not like i need it for GPS or somthing else. It still works and looks 100 times better.

    the little blob of glue is to round it off and to make it water proof.

    Calm down, you put a thread up with a mod and people will add their opinions....mine is that I prefer the stock item as it doesnt look like someones snapped it off.

    Looks fine to me, at the end of the day its your car and you mod it how you fell fit to. I do agree though the stubby aerials look 100% better than the standard jobbie with the wire entwined around it, but like minty i went down the type r aerial route, but bought it from a member off here for about a fiver as he had lots of them from someone at a honda dealer.

    You'll need a PC5-90 or PC5-52 adaptor if you're using a nonstock headunit. It amplifies the aerial signal.
    I heard that I'd need a PC5-90 but used a 52 with my Alpine HU.

    It was me, but I glued the original tip back onto the base, and it works as well as full sized one. also loads better than the honda one for reception
