Aerials

Does anyone know where I might be able to get a smaller aerial? I'm getting fed up with taking it out every time I pull out of the garage and then putting it back on again if I don't it catches on the garage door and would probably rip the whole damn assembly out!

My old mk2 had a hinge on the aerial mount so when I drove in the aerial would hit the door and drop down flush with the roof of the car as I moved in. I only had it catch in the door once but it was a piece of cake to fix that thing (pop out the interior light, unscrew the mount from the inside, get someone else to line up the new one, screw it on from the inside and refitthe light) but this new one looks as if I'd have to take the whole roof lining out of the car just to get at the base of the mount!

I'd make my garage a bit higher but I'd wager that it's cheaper to get a smaller aerial

Re: Aerials

Just get a shorter bee-sting off eBay, can’t remember off hand the screw size that you need but just measure the old one before ordering, I think you get bee-stings as short as 3 inches.
No need to replace the whole unit

I hate my garage and I have my little drive! It's only 7 feet long but it drops nearly 4 feet in that distance before it hits the garage. It's fecking bonkers
