Nice job. I'm glad the antenna arrived safely and in tact. It looks great on your iQ.

I'd like to see that thing turned around and swept FORWARD. Ain't really going to make that much difference aerodynamically or reception-wise; just an aesthetic choice: more aggressive.

I finally took a picture of my new antenna. I love it. Now the spoiler does not hit the antenna when you open the hatch.

Looks really nice. How hard is it to remove the old one and install the shark fin? Lots of re-wiring?
I thought the same,but,it has to be the simplest mod going,even i can do it,old antenna screws out,there is a built in antenna inside the sharkfin with a few inches of hanging wire with a ring on the end,a screw goes through that and into where the stock antenna screws out,two way sticky tape to hold it down,,the expensive 3m grey two way tape.

eBay - It was advertised for the xD and xB but fits perfectly on the iQ.
How has your reception been? Do you notice any problems tuning in HD radio stations?

I actually rarely listen to the radio. I have not tried the reception since I installed it.

I keep a micro usb drive installed at all times and listen to that more than anything else.
