I've seen a few people posting on this board from canada and getting short antenna's from Canada tire or something...how about us folks in America? I really like the antenna's on the Volkswagen golf's or Cabrio if ya knew what i'm talking about, short but effective.

Up here in Canada were pretty lucky with Canadian Tire, they are everywhere and carry lots of stuff, plus the 2001 catalog is FILLED with Performance parts, from B & M, Stillen, K & N, etc...

I bet I could get that stillen front spoiler and B & M short shifter from Canadian Tire.

Anyways, I would suggest, just check out your local Pep Boys, or Auto Zone they might just have a range of antenna's just like that one I got. It was cheap 13$ plus it had about 5 different types of screws to fit most cars.

Also, Sentra Stylin suggested the Trenz Billet Aluminum ones, they where pretty nice. I might just order one some day, but I just REALLY needed to change that antenna FAST its just the damn ugliest thing on the road :)

Here are some pics that I took a while back of the Radio Shack antenna on my car (sorry, I don't have the part number, but it's in the forums numerous places).

Radio Shack Antenna Pics

I'll admit that it's not the greatest looking solution to our problem of a crappy looking antenna, but it's only five dollars and a hell of a lot better than stock.

Personally, I think that it looks pretty damned good, and I'm not really a fan of billet aluminum accessories and whip-like antennas, but to each his own...

I got mine thru www.stylingcompacts.com
You click on exterior styling and then antenna's and there ya go...
They look alot better than the Radio Shack ones do and they are only 18 inches verses the stock whip....

ProjektA8: looks a lot better than in the store. Maybe I'll rethink.

Yeah Projekt's pics of the RS antennae definitely sold me on getting one myself. I think it looks pretty good on my black car. Only complaint I really have is when driving it bends in the wind. I was actually thinking of possibly inserting a piece of hanger or something to make it stay up straight. Reception isn't all that bad either.

I've got the Radio shack one too. Shoot, for 5 bucks, it was one of the most cost effective mods I have done.

It does start to bend over 70MPH though. Past 100, its almost horizontal. :D
