    Hi,

    I am looking at changing the standard bee sting aerial on my A3 (52 Plate). I am looking at changing it to a short aluminium one and am planning on chaging to S3 mirrors to match. Have any of you guys done this or do you have any pics with this done and what do you guys think about it?

    Also i can't seem to remove the top part of the aerial. On my MK2 Golf you simply unscrewed the top part of the aerial, however i can't do this on my A3. Anyone know how to remove it???

    Thanks.

    Yeh that one does look nice. You can also get that one in chrome. Its very similar to the one DPM has posted above.

    Yes it is the right one. Two problems with it however (1) The base does not fit flush, (2) and this fella took about two weeks to deliver to me. Other than that it looks sharp!!

    So what do you guys think of the S2000 aerial in chrome finish? Dont you think it will look good and match S3 Chrome mirrors and if you look at new Audi's with S-Line trim, they certainly have a lot of silver on them.

    personally dont like the chrome mirrors on an A3. Each to their own though.

    Just get a black one why do you want your aerial to stand out any-way?
