I would take ours over the first Gen cars, they look like RC car antennas.
I would like to see one of the sharkfin ones, but only if it were free or close to it

interestingly when we took delivery on the 2012 the radio would only get 1 local am station. they fixed it by taking down the roof lining and making sure the POWER plug was inserted correctly at the base of the antenna which fixed it ... those shorty antennas have an amplifier.

Yeah true but they still look a little like a RC to me, haha it would cost alot to get and i would have to have it match the paint color.
