I hate it. I had to put a curve in it to keep it from hanging up on the top of the garage door. It's an obstruction when you use the roof top carrier.Why didn't Chevy use the shark fin ? Every other new Chevy has a shark fin mount.
Has anyone looked into replacing that Martian receiver with a shark fin?

Check out this link...it shows pickture of a retofit sharkfin.
I have the same problem. I tried to bend my antenna by first heating it with a heat gun. I found out after I bent it that it was not really bent...it was cracked. There is a fibreglass core in the middle of the antenna that will crack if you try and bend it.
I ended up buying a second antenna and cut it a few inches short, then put a black plastic cap on the top.
I have to agree...the antenna is way too long. I could not go into most of the underground parking garages where I live. The antenna was two inches too long. THe antenna also hit most of the residential garages I tried to go into.

Our software doesn't handle big pics gracefully and skews the pages, so your post was removed.
Maybe you can park the photos on your CarSpace page in an album there?

Not a Nox, but get the idea.
