Has anyone on this board installed a shorty antennea in place of the stock full wave antennea? I was wondering if the shorter antennea affected the FM radio reception. And if you thought is was worth the effort in the improved looks dept.

I've got a green painted billet antenna and honestly I can't say that I've noticed any real difference in reception. As for looks I guess that's in the eye of the beholder. Some of the ones I've seen are a flexible black material. I think they look OK when new but over time the ones I've seen stay bent and that looks a little odd to me. I like the one I've got but wish the color was closer to the color of my Escape. Here are a couple of pics:

Thanks, I was considering one, as the stocker hits the garage door when I drive through the opening. Annoying is all, but just something I don't want to hear banging around when I drive in and out of the garage. I suppose I could fix the door, and leave the antennea alone... ;-|
