Don't be hating on me brothers and sisters

After having the antenna ripped off my 159 for the 4th time I put sharkfin antenna on...its small and subtle...so if you see me around Limerick don't give me the evil eye...I am a victim of circumstance.

Best thing for it I'd say. I have seen a few in the GTV lounge where they have fitted an internal antenna and got a body shop to fill in and paint over where the original one was.

I like that.. it works very well in a dark coloured car.

And your FM reception is still good?



BTW, nicely waxed bodywork too.

Irish147, I spotted your 159 a few days ago (actually, I walk pass your car almost every day) and I noticed the shark fin, first time I'd seen one on an alfa, figured it wasn't standard. Looks good though, might do the same myself.

Hey Zaman, sorry for not getting back to you sooner...I got a crash repair guy to do it for me as it was a major pain in the ass to try and get the roof lining out. I attempted it myself but I reckon if I had kept going I would have creased the roof
liner.

looks well.. thought the other option is an internal arial... you can get kits for that. a plate sits under the skin of the roof.
