Clear sides with orange bulbs

On the car

OEM US antenna vs OEM Euro Sharan - yep, size matters!

Stubby installed

Euro Light Switch in

Alientech - its good but the sequences are a little fiddly

Hillside Imports (link was in my fotki). I hear you but look @ it this way, it looks better (although not true dubbin) and it won't catch your roof spoiler.
Better to pay $40 now then $$$ down the road to re-paint the spoiler (coz it hits the OEM antenna)

Haven't really noticed any problems. I'm only listening to it until the XM goes in (hopefully this long weekend) and then it will be tuned to 89.1 (or something like that) and I'll be back on XM listening

What is the alientech controller for?

On most (if not all) Audis you can, using VAG.COM, program the remote to open and shut the windows. On some VWs you can't do this (even with VAG.COM) so Alientech made this controller so you can use the remote key to open and close the windows - pretty cool

Re: Mods update (tmack)

I installed the Sharan antenna two weeks ago and I hear no difference in the quality of FM or AM reception with the stock antenna...

hows the install with the alientech controller?

It's ok. You just have to remember to read the directions carefully and follow these steps....
1. Unpack and check everything
2. clip the wire to the orange orange resistor
3. carefully stagger the locks (to connect the wires)
4. put the door card back on carefully.
I didn't connect the latch to open the door (inside) properly and it came loose on my Sunday canyon run (so I'll be putting this back)
I've messed around with wires (stereos, Nav, XM etc) for years so it's not that hard. If you've never played with wires in a car I'd say get somoene to help you out.

Thanks TTigg. I didn't see it on the website that you posted want to post a link right to the attenna?

The antenna comes from http://www.hillsideimports.com/index2.asp but there site is flash so I can't give you a link directly to it. goto...
