So I ordered the Visual Garage Shark fin antenna and finally received it today (They custom paint each one according to your cars paint code!)

Installation was a breeze! Literally took me like 5 minutes...

Before hard mounting, I checked my XM, worked fine. Called OnStar, Worked great (I even asked if he had my GPS location, he told it to me right away!)

As a RF specialist for the DoD, I was pretty impressed with this nifty little thing. In my inventory, we have 100+ Antennas that cover every frequency range from DC-30Ghz. I've seen an antenna or two in my day lol.

Anyways, here are the pics!

I love it! The antenna's like the one thing that makes these cars look "cheap." A brand new BMW 328i parked next to me today at lunch... cars look almost identical :)

I've had one on my Mazda 6 since the 2nd week of owning it. It's my most favorite mod by far! The look is so awesome! I will also vouch for the fact that the reception is much better than stock.

I'll take my chances, I've never been judged by a car antenna. :) If I wanted to look like a BMW I'd buy a BMW.

Very nice looking. Can't argue that it doesn't look better than the boner sticking off the roof from the factory.
:lol:

Usually when I pull into my garage, I lose XM for about 10 sec... yesterday I dropped it for literally .5 sec... I wish I would have done an RF profile on it Vs. the Factory one before I installed it :(

Would you mind posting a pic of the side profile?
I'll try today. You just looking to see how tall it is?

I'm not worried about being judged. I just think it's retarded GM decided to overlook our cars in this aspect... considering half the other 4 doors they've been releasing have them.

looks pretty slick I think!
Agreed! I'm stoked!

Waiting on the group buy to get mine. It'll look great instead of the dead branch sticking up.

I think i'll stick w/ my oem, but it does look pretty cool, kinda like one of those nascar camera's mounted on the roof to give you ride-along shots. - Dan

Just installed mine. I'm not too confident that the 3m type tape is going to survive the winter here in Michigan. I love how it looks. Fingers crossed.
