Mk5 GTI shark fin aerial
« on: August 11, 2019, 01:57:46 pm »
Hi all,

I've got an NZ new mk5 GTI with the bee sting aerial. I believe the NZ models came with bee stings due to reception issues. I never listen to the radio so im looking to change to a shark fin aerial for aesthetic reasons. Im struggling to find a replacement part - any suggestion on where i can get an OEM or decent aftermarket part?

Cheers

my 05 mk5 had no beesting or sharkfin.
radio reception with the oem rcd300 (dual diversity) was fine.

have you tried your local vw dealer ?

or ebay, aliexpress etc.
