    A general couple of questions out to everyone really.

    I lost my aerial couple of weeks and thought I might as well go with a shark fin that i've been thinking about but a bin unsure on a few things.

    First, which shape is the correct OEM audi shape? There is a couple of after market ones but they seem a bit big or don't look right.

    Secondly, I don't have satnav, dab or any thing digital like that, so I assume just a normal shark fin aerial that has the normal connection will be fine for my A4 B5?

    I need to replace my ariel rubber base so might be interested in a shark fin if you find some.

    I don't need to spend any more money, but I'll probably take a passing interest in this thread anyway, as the Shark fin looked nice on that Baby Blue S3 at ADI

    LOL.
    Would you like a 8L Peeing on a 8P? :)

    If there is enough interest and we find a good OEM likeness for us all, I can try and set up a group buy.

    Hmm...I don't think i've got anything better to do this afternoon, so it's either design a new avatar or go outside and start clubbing the students that are shouting and whinging outside the office...student beatings anyone?

    From what model? I'll get a part number or we can ask stoke Dave for a GB price.

    This would make a great stocking filler ;)

    Loving what you've done with the avatar.

    I dont think Damo has sat nav or any fancy kit in his S3 though.

    Thats my understanding.
    Hence the look for after market ones that look OEM.

    I'm not sure what one Damo has or if its wired in correctly.
    I think they are about £60 from Audi.

    I just seem to recall Nige saying once that the OEM Audi sharkfins were only for GPS, Aux Heater sensor and GSM and that the external FM antenna was in the rear window. I could be wrong, or that could have been specific to the 8P maybe as it was last year sometime at least.

    £30 for that unit and some cutting about.

    I guess i'm being a bit picky with what i'm after.
    Something about £20 with no cutting about required.

    I guess part of it is paranoia, since it covers a hole directly into the car. I don't want to have to cut it about for it to work cause there is that chance of it leaking.

    I'm looking for one I found that looked OEM ish and was a simple bolt in job but I can't find it.

    Also, I wonder what connector we have in to the aerial and it is ampped?
    WIll that effect any after market item?

    The cheaper one is more OEM looking and has standard wiring.

    I do belive that it will be halv the rear trim off to be able to peel back the roof lining.
