Shark fin antenna

Post by lusky1969 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 2:25 pm

Hi all
Im probaly going to get caned for asking this but, ive been looking at the beat sonic sharkfin antenna for my silver 2013 nissan juke but the price makes it hard to justify to the good lady. Does anyone have a link to a good quality antenna that would match my colour, work and is not a dummy and of a reasonable price?
TIA
Lusky

Search for this item # on eBay 291906857135.
I put one on my Dig-T 18 months ago and its still working fine.
The colour match is excellent.

Thanks Wint. Ive contacted the seller. Says in the installation section about stickinit to bare metal 😲 sounds extreme. How long did it take you to fit yours, any loss in signal and how sturdy does it feel

It is stuck to the roof using a spongy double sided sticky. Mine's been on 18 months, and is still solid.
Possibly only minor loss of signal, but I only listen to Radio 5 and 4 and these are fine.
It's a ten minute job.
Once you unscrew the original aerial then you bolt the cable from the shark fin to the remaining hole, and then stick it down over the fitting.
