Have you ever had a shark fin antenna off? I just had mine off for a repaint. It just has a wire attached to the whip base with a screw. It’s double face taped to the roof.

The review says it has bad reception tho.Yes for AM / FM only.
I was thinking about getting this one:
Looks? I'm doing it so I can hit the 155mph mark, with the whip I'm maxed out at 153. :lol:Note that you will experience a loss of signal strength over the standard whip. Simple physics. Some people feel the shark fin is still "good enough" and are willing to do it for the look.
See, the factory antenna has a built-in amplifier AND a more effective mast. Hard for aftermarket to match.I had tried the $19 variety of shark fin antennas and they provide basic AM/FM performance, not as good as a whip. All they have inside is a bit of pigtail wire. My experience with the VirtualGarage one is much better. It has a pc board inside with an etched 'meander line' providing more effective antenna length and loading. My road experience is good reception, even for a low wattage FM station in San Francisco.
You may need an adapter for it. The B5/B5.5 use an ISO antenna terminal. The newer ones are Fakra like your picture.
Well that would suck.You may need an adapter for it. The B5/B5.5 use an ISO antenna terminal. The newer ones are Fakra like your picture. View attachment 89949
