Pros: attractive and easy to fit
Cons: adaptor stud at risk of rusting
" I have a Nissan Note whose aerial catches on the garage door. I bought this aerial as it is longer than the 'beesting' type aerial that have used and was not impressed, and the signal reception is as good as the original. But most of all, it does not catch on the garage door.
I would suggest using a spray of WD40 on the adaptor stud as it is vulnerable to rust. It is not coated like the main body of the aerial.

" I needed to fit a replacement aerial to my new C3 Picasso as the standard aerial was too high to pass under my garage door. I needed a replacement aerial that I could modify and this aerial was perfect for the job. I could easily reduce the length of the aluminium body then re-tap the thread to then screw on the steel rod which I bent down to clear the garage door but still gave me a long aerial. A quick spray with a black gloss aerosol paint on the modified aluminium body part finished the modification! The result was an aerial that now allows me clearance to enter my garage and good radio reception. Job accomplished! "

" This aerial certainly looks the part and fitted quite well, but resulted in limited improvement to FM reception and negligible improvement to AM reception. On that basis I would not recommend it. "

Pros: good length, quality
Cons: no second attachment
" The product is used on a new Ford Grand C Max which being high meant that the original aerial hit the garage door. This product works very well and i havent noticed any distortion or lack of signal strength..Very please alround and the price isnt "ott".
In the advert it states a second length of aerial was included but this is not in the pack, however i only needed avery short stub aerial..Good Product

" Got bad distortion on my Focus aerial and decided to try this one , So far I have had no distortion (although I have only used it driving a short distance) but before I would get interference every 20 seconds or so on FM wavebands.
Its shorter than my old aerial yet it seems to give a better reception , I would say use the longest rod as its still shorter than most standard aerials and the other smaller rods supplied just seem too short.
Very pleased so far and it looks a lot better than what I had on my car! "

Pros: better reception
" Broke my original aerial and bought this as a replacement.
The reception is better with this aerial, it looks good.
The added bonus with this aerial was being able to adjust the length, with the supplied aerial mast rods.

" Purchased for my new Meriva due to standard aerial catching on garage door. Three length options with the aerial. of which I installed the middle length. Reception appears excellent even Classic FM which I have always had trouble with. Delivery was rapid, Installation easy and price ok. All in All a very good buy. "
