Hey everyone, i was thinking about putting a Shark fin style antenna on my 2010 to replace the ugly one on there now. i was just wondering if anyone has done this and has pics or has had difficulties with mounting it. here is a link to the one i was thinking about:

That would be sweet if you dont want to listen to your radio, that is just a dummy antenna for looks.

I don't have to be mad to punch someone in the face!

I believe one of the members on here did that awhile ago, he didnt have any problems with what he used as far as I remember.

Ratfink did the mod...it did mess up his reception, but he didn't listen to the radio anyways. He pretty much just used pandora for music.

okay thanks. Anyone know if it voids the factory warranty by any chance, just to save me a phone call.

$7 antenna delete shark fin - Ratfink

Since no one else is going to look it up. It's pretty much not worth it unless you want a crappy radio antenna and a "sleek" exterior mod. God I wish ratfink would just get back on the boards. LOL

Yeah, his post is old and his photobucket photos are jacked now. Unfortunately that is the breaks. No problem man. I may sound irritated but, I will still help out as much as I can. Its so much easier to search for answers at times. Especially if someone already did it before.
