You can completely replace it as i am with a shark fin antenna... I got used to the one on my elantra so I want it back lol.. You can get them here VG Shark Fin Antenna - Home and get it repainted or order one from your local Hyundai Dealer for a lil more money... The part #962502H1109F for the Black Pearl color from the Hyundai Dealer... They cost approx. $154 from the dealer though... I'll be able to shave about $30 since i've been goin there forever but Idk how lucky the rest of you will be... Everything will mount and wire properly from the dealer but I'm not sure about the other one...
there is a reason i posted this in the apearence section. if it was an issue of importance i would have posted in the general discussion.. was just wondering what other people have done with antenna mods.
im looking into the shark fin, i had one on my Mazda 3. but the base for the mazda 3 antenna is way smaller then the koup.
i am sure that I saw a sharkfin style antenna on one of the parts threads that was for the forte and as i recall it looked nice. I would never knock anyone choice to mod any part of the car. Its a fact people like different things. I am in love with the fact that not many people have this car and as more people get them and they become less unique i will be doing more mods to make mine stand out. So I understand your desire to change the look I personally would just start somewhere else on my car. But to each his own!! I will look for that thread in a bit see if I can point you in the right direction.
