    I would like to replace the OEM wire antenna with something lower profile to improve styling and so I don't bang the antenna on every low hanging branch I can find.

    What replacements do you like or avoid?

    That would be on my list to avoid. Personally, I thought the fit and finish was horrible. I will say their customer service is great though, I was able to return it easily.

    I just bought the one from Antenna-X. It fit perfectly and it gets the same reception that the OEM antenna did. Good reception and doesn't hit the garage door...that's all I wanted. I have only had it for about 2 weeks, so ot hasn't had time to turn orange. But if it does after a year or so, I'll probably just replace it with a new one. I like it.

    Have never understood why people buy aftermarket black antennas when you can cut it for free to your liking?
