No change for me, but I have lousy reception. That said, what I did was clean the threaded hole with contact cleaner, blew it out with canned air, put a small dab of dielectric grease on the new screw, pulled the tape cover off the fin, wiped the paint with a touch of acetone, screwed in the new screw with fractal antenna attached and pasted down the fin. Put some blue tape on to ensure a good bond.

Some day when I learn how to upload video I'll show side by side with my Dodge van that I should have ten times as many stations on my Cruze as I do.
LOL, You should hear the Accord. It's 8 Track quality FM and AM. USB and BT is slightly better. They have these Active Noise Control microphones in 2 spots of the roof and they pretty much make a crappy setup even worse. You have to disable it if you add subs.
