    Anyone know where I can get these from? saw one on an A3 and it was a small black one - looked really good imo.

    Cheers

    cheers. had a look on there but can't find the one I want. It was black plastic and only about 5cm tall. Looked oem, a bit like the small ones on the back of the SL55 merc

    It was probably a Honda Civic one, they look great. I've been meaning to get one for ages but keep forgetting. Maybe, ill offer the guy over the road a free car wash and swap em over :D

    They're doing yet another group buy on UKMKIVs for the (I think) Honda ones. My wife has one on her Polo so if the fitting is the same you're laughing. Don't be tempted by the Forge alloy replacements. Very nice finish but not a good fit IMHO.

    That's the one! Which model did you go for? Does it adversely affect the radio reception much?

    Can someone with the CTR one comment on any change in radio receiption before / after? I assume the smaller the aerial the worse the quality anyone care to argue with that?

    It is smaller, but its also fatter than the original. I guess that would suggest that overall capacity to receive signal is mantained.
    Havent had any probs with my Honda one, even in known weaker signal areas out on the North norfolk coast. I spend a bit of time that way so would be able to notice it. (I did suffer with a 3" aluminium one I had previously)

    That's good to hear as that's the problem I've got the Alu one I've got is great as long as you only like Radio 1!

    I bought one of the GPA slimline ones a couple of weeks back - got it in silver to match the car - it's very well made and fits absolutely fine but looks a little bit too "max powerish" for me so i'm going to get a black one to keep it looking OEM

    cheers mate

    it looked ok on the website but just doesn't suit the A3 very well imo

    at least i didn't get a red one!! - that would have been a bit too chav tastic

    Obviously trying to cash in on the 'prestige' german models. I went for the 3.49 one and it works a treat.
