Got a Shorty Antenna :)

It really hasn't made too much of a difference with my radio. Sometimes the radio does fade off, but if I move my car up seriously a few inches, it will get clear again. Although, I may have neglected to replace hardware that came with the new antenna, so that may be the problem...

Also here are the pics of the emblems blacked out. This pretty much completes my plans, lol. At this point, not worth expensive mods.

Haha! It's the plate and I didn't do it, promise! ;)
I actually tried to put on a new frame but it wouldn't fit over the f-ed up plate

Wait, unless you are referring to the Subaru?

I never let car dealership post free ads on my cars. If they want their stickers or plate frames on my car they can pay me or keep 'em. The first thing I do when I buy a car is peel their dealership sticker usually before I leave their lot.

My friend told them when he got his to remove the sticker and they kicked up a big fuss and we ended up taking it off.

I got my MPX shorty antenna and i really haven't noticed any difference. Might be because i live in NYC and there's probably antennas everywhere
