Shark Fin Antenna
 
For those of you have installed and been using your Shark Fins, a question. What have you found the reception to be like before and after your installation with regard to the AM and FM?

Am/fm still exists? I kid I kid.

I believe am and sirius are same as before. I am not as crazy with fm, for sure worse quality.

I am comparing with my other car/same places and stations. Tons of more static on fm. It could be in general radio issue since I don't remember how much better it was on stock antenna. I don't listen fm much anyway.

I don't notice any difference. Of course, with the cargo box I have it was almost a neccessity.

I only noticed a difference in FM when going through tunnels...stock was better. Other than tunnels, no difference.

Allows me to put 4 snowboards on my roof without dodging an antenna.

I installed one because even with vehicle lowered tobpark mode and garage at max height the foot long antennae was hitting the garage backing out or in making a very annoying sound. Plus it flat out looks much better.
