I would think it looks terrible. I never liked any of the cars with the fin. Especially a B5. It wouldn't match the lines of the car at all

I've been wondering about this too. I don't like the looks but I've had a few antennas break in car washes and the threads in my Fuba antenna are stripped. My antenna is actually super glued on so I can't go through a car wash until I replace it.

What I want to know is if the sharkfin antennas are a direct replacement for the powered Fuba antenna and if GPS can be fitted or is preinstalled.

if you don't have an exterior antenna it is in the rear window, top 2 black lines...doesn't work too well but thats where it is..

I would like to put an external GPS antenna in one. However it sounds like a lot of work...
