"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."
