Hi all. For fear of looking like I'm posting an old topic (there are a couple of previous threads about this), does anyone actually know an aerial/mount that ACTUALLY fits the GTV?

Any links would be greatly received. Reading the previous posts hasn't really yielded any options and searching eBay "GTV aerial" etc brings-up a load of generic Chinese cr*p.

After a couple of broken telescopic aerials, looking for a static one.

Cheers, as ever. :thumbup:

I fitted something very similar to the item below in my last GTV, hidden away in the third rear brake light assembly with just about 2cm of each wing protruding through slits made with a scalpel.
I left the original aerial in place in the down position it had failed in, and ran the new wiring back through the boot to the OE connector...all pretty much invisible when finished.

I'm sure some folk will scoff at the idea but I can assure you it worked perfectly for me with no loss of reception over the old aerial, and the car no longer looked like a radio controlled toy...:biglaugh:

I love the comment about the radio-controlled car.

After buying an aftermarket "original replacement" and it failed right on startup i bouth one of these too, but the stronger version, since our area is blocked by 2 mountains. It is the best option ever. Installed to A pillar left side behind plastic cover, in just about 10 minutes total. Trust me, you will want to mask the rear antenna afterwards :)
