Unscrew the antenna from the base Line up the new one and mark withtape. Screw collar onto existing base tighten screw to hold collar on and place antenna on roof after peeling tape off the base. Can not be simpler Base stays on car. just remove antenna

Yes they can paint to match the exact color of the body. and here is a little wider angle shot. If you get too much further though, you won't see it as well i think. this may help out. let me know

not sure about alternatives. I liked that one for ease of installation and Paint match up were my deciding factors

Link is under first pic and if I am not mistaken, THey clearcoat when they paint. They are made specifically for the vehicle not a BMW or Lexus as I have seen others hee with. Nothin against those, but!!
