I didn't do all the tape stuff, I found that as you put it down, if you let it rub against the back of the antenna base, it lines it's self up. Ended up spot on. So far I have not noticed any issues with the smaller antenna. Reception is good. I have had it on for about 2 weeks now.

Same seamless vent visors, buy from whoever sells them cheaper (including the shipping).

If she throws a fit, just remind her of all the shoes, purses, jewelry, and fragrances that she has. Then remind her how much you spent on her.

If she's a wise girl, she'll quiet up.

If she is like my girl, she'll raise that index fair into the air and snap back with the "Oh don't even...!".

Chances are no one on SL has the kind of girl in example 1.

Ok I ordered mine but is the static that bad? reading all the reviews about the reception not being as good, wonder if I made the right choice. Granted my radio reception wasn't the hotest to begin with I don't know if I want it to be worse.....

Ha. There's just one problem: she's a chick. She'll still find some way to hold it against you. lol

Your reception will be fine. It works out great for me, so I don't know. I guess it depends on radio signals in the first place.

mine has been on for a year now, and I have YET to have a reception problem. maybe WAY OUT in the boonies you loose reception a little faster than with the "*****" *that's what I call the stock stick*

I just ordered mine... I can't wait!!

I had one on my previous car and never once had a problem with radio reception or the antenna coming loose. It was on my car for over 4 years!

I've had mine on as well for about a year! I really like the way that the antenna and spoiler look together, very complimentary in my opinion... and yes reception is still great!

I was gonna go with the Shark Fin but in my opinion, it doesn't go with the lines of this Box, therefore I went with the 3" antenna from Streetune, and I get great reception.
