OK - I might think about emailing VG if you can make a list of things you have tried to troubleshoot your antenna problems. This does not mean comparing it to the sharkfin antenna on your G37 that does nothing for FM/AM.

They are personal attacks cause you are stupid. Common sense should have told you what to do. I told you what to do. Several members have even chimed in. The only person to make any mistakes here is YOU.

Make a list of things you have done to correct your antenna issues.

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

Ok I'll chime in. I was someone who ordered the Shark Fin prior to the group buy so I paid full price. Now I read everything about it and I knew there were mixed results on reception but most were positive. After I installed it I found the reception to be worse. I asked for my money back but they said it was custom so they could not refund my money. Fair enough. So, I'll move on, uninstall it and go back to the stock antenna.

I was fully aware that this could happen. So many variables contribute to reception as stated on the visual garages web site. So even though I experienced poor reception, it seems many are experiencing good reception. So, I will move on and not bash the Shark Fin, as just may be the area I live that is giving me problems. As far as the money I'm out, I'll just skip a dinner out with my wife.

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

TTUMB, I give you much credit for even responding. I wasn't involved in the group buy, as we didn't have a GC when it was offered. However, I have read through this thread in its entirety and it is going nowhere in a hurry. It is obvious english is not Breit's native language. He's only making it more obvious with his ridiculous demands and posts. I normally don't care, but I've reported his last post. He's just gone to far, in my opinion.

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

Modding does not have anything to do with Moaning for cripes sake.

TTumb did all of the JG forum members a huge favor, and this is what he gets in thanks? +rep to TTumb for going beyond the call of duty and then having to put up with this crap.

If you don't like it then STFU, re-install the lame 6" post antennae yourself, and take your whiniing directly to VG. Jeebus.

FWIW, I paid full retail for my Sharkfin, and I'd do it again, gladly.

Re: Shark Fin Antenna

Praise to TTUMB.

as far as the complainer......take it to the maker and STFU on here. there is no obama care in real lfe. no bailouts. so tuck your tail in and move on.

i too bought an antenna for my wk. after i recieved it I decided it looked funny on my jeep and sold it. Itook a chance, it didnt work out. i didnt expect VG to take it back after they custom painted it. my problem my solution.

Yes tire pressure is great and oil change just done, seriously are you kidding when you are asking about "troubleshooting" this decoration type antenna with one bolt inside? What would you do first? I call it like this because antenna doesn't work well as radio antenna but great as decor instead for some here. Yesterday I tried FM radio several other places in NJ and nothing besides noise and static out. As I said before am and sat works fine as well as fm worked fine before too.
