What other reply are you looking for? If everyone else has their antennas working and a few have issues; A. Faulty unit (it happens) B. User error

Other than YOU not taking initiative on YOUR antenna and doing some work YOURSELF.

Have you continued your gene pool with offspring?

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

I already explained what I was looking, if you only could help to arrange quick money collection for your friends in this company and refusing to do anything else it is up to you. Let's arrange another $3 or whatever saving deal for product that doesn't work and noone could return or exchange. I am not on your list and I hope many other.

I never refused to do anything as I was never asked to do anything. If a large number of antennas had issues, then I would have done something to make it right. However, that was not the case as the antennas work.

If you would have contacted VG about a potentially faulty unit initially, then they should have worked with you. Sounds like you did not do that. That is on you.

The VG Sharkfin antenna does work. Mine works everyday. The quality is the same, if not better. Have you troubleshooted your antenna at all? Checked the bolt? Still tightened down? Everything is attached?

The group buy was a success.

We saved money, got a quality product, and lost the pigtail.
You saved money, got a quality product, and most likely installed it wrong.

Again, it is on you. Always have been. That is why YOU do something about it. Be active, not passive.

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

You cant really install it wrong, so else you didn't tighten the bolt cross that off the list. You might have antenna issues. It's most likely is not faulty, depending on where you live you very well might have interference. Its a fact posted on the VisualGarage website as well as confirmed by you and a few others including me. You'd think the antenna would work the same as stock but for what ever reason it does lose some reception strength. For the people who live in more rural areas where you don't have signals from different states, it most likely works great all the time.

Breit65 to be honest with you, your not making much sense and I've followed this thread from the beginning (no offense my taking it as how I have read it thus far). TTUMB set up a group buy, whether you participated or not I'm not sure. Regardless TTUMB has nothing to do with your or anyone else's issue. Everyone made an individual purchase. TTUMB didn't collect money, he didn't buy you your product or my product, he merely negotiated a better price for us as consumers. He doesn't deal with returns, he doesn't deal with bad antennas, he wouldn't even deal with an antenna not being shipped. That would all go through the Visual Garage company that you, me and many others purchased from. If you have an issue and it won't be handle by Visual Garage and your unsatisfied then file a complaint in Paypal. But don't involve TTUMB, he or any of us have no control nor need to be involved in your antenna issue.

Look at it in a simpler context, if TTUMB all found us coupons to BestBuy, we used the coupon to buy a SUB at best buy. Would you contact TTUMB to handle your issue with the sub? Ummm NO. You'd contact best buy, or the company who made the sub. Just because TTUMB got us a coupon you don't involve him in your issue. He merely saved you money.







This is taken directly from Visual Garage FAQ. Available to anyone who purchases an antenna.

1) Is VG Shark Fin Antenna functional and how does it compare to stock?
Yes! The built in fractal antenna attaches directly to your antenna base and gives you normal reception for AM and FM radio. The reception is consistently better than any stubby antenna that we tested, and virtually unchanged within the city compared to the stock antenna. However, you might notice a drop in reception when further away from the source.

RETURNS / EXCHANGES
Our product is custom painted and custom fitted to the car upon placing an order. For this reason, we are normally unable to offer returns or exchanges on an order unless special arrangements have been made beforehand. In the event that we make a mistake on your order, we will have it corrected in a timely manner. We strive to provide good customer service and will do our best to assist you with any problems that arise. If you have a special case and would like to discuss possible options, please contact us before placing an order.

I vote that TTUMBIO2010 puts together a group buy to buy the Shark Fin from Breitling65, then whoever buys it can complain on the forums here and he can set up a 3rd group buy to buy it from that person

Wow, finally he has time to respond! Check bolt? Grammar? Sounds like nothing to respond besides personal attack? Check your bolt than, one in your head for sure!

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

I see all this differently, he admitted that this is his friends he arranged business. I see nothing wrong if he will email them with "Hey Joe we have some people in last group who is not happy, may be you could be nice and exchange their antennas or return them money." If they say no, we could see what could be done otherwise. Instead he jumps with personal attacks.

Really? Can you only repeat yourself? Yes, did you ever check the bolt? [insert your answer here in next quote]

Yes, your grammar blows. Work on it. Practice makes perfect.
