Default Stubby Antennae

Hey guys I want to replace my oem with a stubby to get a cleaner look. I have seen small antennae but has anyone ever seen something this small? It says itll fit our cars and I dont really care about reception but im not sure if itll look stupid or not

It is only 13 shipped. Give it a shot and post the results / picture. I removed mine and installed one of the flat caps that come on the cars when they are being shipped to the dealership. I am too cheap to pay to have the hole filled and have the rear quarter panel repainted. That money could be spent on brakes or tires (something useful).

You're the only one that can tell if you think it will look stupid (highly subjective matter) or not.

Is that your car? If so, can you post a better picture. I would like to see how it covers the base.

My feeling exactly. But if you really like the super stubby look, you could try out an 8mm allen bolt capped with a vacuum plug, probably runs about $1.50 total at your local hardware store. Yeah it's ghetto but just say it's custom.
