Been a little bit of an idiot went through a car wash and ripped out my aerial... I have got a lovley dent in my roof! Has anyone replaced one? I've been quoted about £300 to do it!!!!! Im sure I could do it myself Inerested if anyone has managed to fit one or maybe one of those snazy shark fins ???
I quite fancy a shark fin myself, so would also appreciate any thoughts on this too.
Hi - had the same thing happen to mine last week when some helpful young chav decided to nick all the bee sting aerials on all the cars in our street!
Wierdly, I found a replacement from Halfords (designed to fit a Toyota and Rover!) that fits fine....not quite as good as the original but only 8 quif so it'll do til I can research the shark fin option!
...any luck with you guys on the shark vs bee front....?
I've been looking for a shark fin replacement for months and not found anything..... I find the bee sting ugly, cheap looking and outdated....
Seriously considering popping into a BMW garage and asking....
I wonder if the connections would be the same
From my experience in Halfords I found that there were a fair few sizes....the one that fit, as I said was a Rover version!....might be worth going back in to check if that also fits any Beemers and THEN tracking back to see if I can get a shark fin with the same thread size...
What a pulavah!
Yay! All fixed cost me £35.00 for the Base & the whip not the £300 that the main dealer was going to charge me had a bit of difficulty wedging myself up on to the parcel shelf but well worth the effort & my dents gone!
Take it easy when dropping the headlining looks like it's easily creased
