    How does the housing attach to the body? Is it adhesive?

    Sweet! So, how did you pop the factory off? Elbow grease?

    Also, awesome grille!

    Re: Shark Fin Antenna (Update)

    Actually, you cover the factory base with the new Shark Fin Antenna. As I understand it the factory base has the XM antenna in it and the new antenna is used for AM/FM. There is a wire that you attach with a screw to the base unit on the new Shark Fin Antenna. This wire is the new antenna as I understand it and is molded into the Shark Fin Antenna on the side and serves as the antenna portion. So far zero complaints from me to this addition.

    Here's a question TN 2011 SRX. How did you go about purchasing one? Did you just contact them on their website? I don't see any way to order a Mark II (that's supposed to fit the SRX)...

    I'm pretty sure there is no differences between OnStar antenna/whips for any GM models, aside from the models that already use the tiny little fin (Impala, Malibu).

    Re: Shark Fin Antenna (Update)

    Arrived and installed like pie!

    Paint match perfect, and quite a larger unit.




    The guts. And hooked up.



    On! The way it should have been from factory!





    Can barely even see it from the front.



    Looks sweet!

    You just have to mention you want Mark II for the SRX when ordering.
