    Why would you want to retro-fit one? There is no way I'd be drilling holes in the roof of mine!

    When I did mine I just taped an A4 sheet of paper in the approximate area with masking tape then marked a centre line from each side, then I lifted up the tailgate to work out how far back the ariel needs to be to miss the tailgate, it's fairly easy really.
    Mine sits this far back

    I can get you some measurements, but the cars not available until later on

    Done this to a number of peoples cars now, as long as you use your head as interms of rust protection, maybe some sealant to strengthen the already sealed area with the antenna base you'll be fine, but careful measurements needed aswell as positioning centered etc, about £60 from audi btw.

    Keep this on your created thread mate as 2 threads gets messy.
