Dab aerials

Away to be upgrading the cd player in my van to a Kenwood dab unit. Been looking at the shark fin aerials but only had experience with the genuine VW one on my scirocco. Has anyone bought any aftermarket ones? If so which one? And what's their thoughts? Cheers

Me too. I never knew there were so many variables. I was very interested in the adapter to convert the standard FM/AM earial, but it only works if it's not amplified.

It’s very dependant on area. My stick on is ok too in most places but does have a fit in select areas.

One fitment that worked for me was a mag mount inside the boot trim with just the mast sticking up through the grill in the trim,worked a treat and hardly visable.
