I have that one! It's very slick. I have a black car, so I got it in black. Reception is just ok. If you live in a bigger city, it would be great. I live in a more rural area and I still get reception from pretty much all my local stations. Just know that the shorter then antenna, the crappier the reception will be. I would get it though... nice for the dough.

By the way, use blue loc-tite on it when installing, otherwise it can unscrew pretty easy. It WILL get stolen if you don't. Just a heads up.

For my personal taste I do not listen to the radio in my car...cd's only. For that matter I went the cheapest route possible. All I did was take my antenna off, cut it in half with some bolt cutters, painted it black and put the little rubber thingie back on top. For like 2 bucks investment I couldn't find another mod like that :)

That's exactly what I did and mine still works great. It is even with the roof line and looks 1 billion times better than the ******* whip antenna that comes stock.:jester:

Lol, in a pt cruiser even with the roof line means it's only 4 feet tall instead of 5:rofl: Seriously tho I think mine's probably about 15" long at the most and I love it. Probably goes to about half way up my windshield and best of all it doesn't flap in the breeze on the freeway anymore :)

I did the same thing and the reception is not that bad at all. I mean I don't really care about it because I rarely listen to the radio but once in a while I do and I get all my local stations.

Install directions

Does this have to be installed on the roof or can it go in our stock location?

Any pics of it installed?

What is it made of?

It can go on the rear windshield or it can go in place of our stock antenna. Mine sits in place of the stock antenna.
