    Get a bee-sting or similar. Got one on mine and look MUCH better than the standard thing.

    does the shark aerial do the radio? i thought it was gps and telephone - it certainly is on the latest s4.

    i changed my radio whip on the roof to the audi triplex (gps/radio/phone) - you have to remove the boot side trim on the left, the pillar trim then the central rear roof trim behind the rear roof lights - the aerial has a toothed nut that simply unscrews - remove the old aerial, pass the new leads through the roof hole and put back the bolt.

    you may find that the leads/connections are very different - the audi triplex aerial uses the radio lead connector for the gps signal and different connectors for the radio and phone - i cut the new aerial connectors off and soldered the leads but had to dismantle the triplex aerial to start with to work out which of the 3 leads was which function - they areent labelled at all.

    Shark Fin Replica Antenna

    ... I'm guessing by the word replica that it is merely a stick on piece of plastic?

    the only point of fitting the triplex aerial is for the gps or phone bit - lookwise it looks like the standard whip, but the base is bigger with a second round bulge in front of the normal base of the aerial.

    overall no change in looks - but sorry i dont have any pictures.
