    Yeah but then it looks incomplete. It would be cool of someone made a little screw in extension that finished off the base to make it look like a shark fin. CRAP I NEED TO PATENT THAT!

    Ours has that panic button on the remote, soft horn beeps if you only hold it for three seconds, loud beeps and flashing lights if held for over three seconds. Really don't know what happens if you hold it down for more than six seconds, maybe the entire car blows up so you can find it.

    Another disadvantage of buying a new car, get very fussy where I park it, wife says, there is a spot. Yeah, would have to squeeze in between to monster trucks, can see our doors getting all banged up. So I drop her off at the front door and park it two blocks away. But remember where I parked it.

    In Caracas, she drives, I just ride along, but we had about a ten block walk and I was paying far more attention to all those creepy people with rumors about murders and robbery. Thought she was paying attention to where she parked it. Afterwards, we walked all over for about three hours until we found it. Now I pay attention. In this respect, the USA is still a nice place to live, but watch out for those monster trucks.

    I'm trying to modify one of the christmas tree like plugs we have at the shop here to fit into the lil screw hole. If it works it should totally cover the screw hold, and look all black.

    I also get yelled at constantly for parking so far from the store, altho in my area it's normal for someone to drive through the stores, as the local dollarama seems to be missing a piece of the wall all the time. I figured if they have no problem parking in the store they don't care much if they bang the **** outta your door.

    I started a thread in the electrical forum already about this, short question would be how you remove the base (for those that have installed the shark fin), I have to probably replace the base and mast, mother in laws garage door whacked the crap out of my antenna.

    You don't remove the base. The shark fin antenna only covers over it and is painted factory loot to match your car. For a safety measure, it does also include a screw and a wire that connects to a built in antenna stuck on the inside of the shell of the shark fin.

    LOL. I used little rubber Santa doll with wire arms to hold on tight. Actually I don't know if it helped me find the car better or not: just stood up more than the fin and was typically the only type of visible antenna in the lot since my car gets lost in the "sea" of grey cars. Really I need a "distinctive beep" for my key less entry or at least turn the volume up as I am partially deaf in one ear to find my car easier.

    I think I found a guy here who has removed the base, I sent him an PM. Just need to fix the stock antenna so looking for someone who may have removed the base on a Cruze with onstar.
