    S2000 stubby is the mod of choice for many, i prefer OEM but each to their own ;)

    dunno wrong person to ask :)

    theres also the consideration of buying a cheap shark fin, you may have a dramatic loss of reception which would annoy the **** outta me if id gone to all that trouble

    Rob if you Got DAB you not though of just removing all together ??

    I like the idea and it could look OK if colour matched but i don't know if i could do it..

    OEM BABY:kissmyrings:

    its the OEM Ariel with the long bit snipped off. drop a dab of apoxy on the top so its water tight again and bang.. you have a fully working Ariel that looks better than old thing that makes your car look like a bumper car! and its free!
