Is there any shorter alternatives to this? I don't want the Fuba antenna on the roof either. I"m thinking of removing the whole antenna up front and filling the hole, but I think i'd like the look of a shorter, stubbier one. Any suggestions?

Re: Alternative to front fender mounted antenna (College Dub)

sorry i am in class, i dont have the link, but there is a plastic piece from vw to plug the hole, like a buck, and you can shove the antenna into the rain tray thingy (you know under the hodd right by the firewall) and the reception will be the same, plus it is ghetto filled http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i feel the same way.. i think the stock fender mount antenna looks like ass. how about putting a cabrio stubby fender mount antenna on there? it kinda looks like a fuba for the fender!

I have the same plug on my fender. It's a Canadian part and you can buy it at the local VW Parts counter for under $5. It just snaps in place!

The fuba style fender mount is available off a cabby. I am not sure about a stubby one though. I recently moved by antenna to the tray below the wiper and but the plug in the fender. I looks 10 time better IMO. I haven't noticed a change in my reception either. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Alternative to front fender mounted antenna (College Dub)

I have a billet stubby up for sale. It was originally to take place of the FUBA roof mount but I removed the screw and tapped the hole to fir the fender location. I no longer run an external antenna .... drop me a line if anyone is interested
