    Man, I'm so jealous.... I might have to order one.

    I understand radio signal is unaffected (antenna in rear window); has anyone had a chance to compare GPS or OnStar reception before and after the swap? Not so concerned with satellite radio but I would hate to loose the other signal strengths.

    I have had no signal issue with GPS, Satellite or OnStar signal since going to the Sharkfin antenna.

    Same here. Before I did the install I attached the antenna lead to insure it was working rather than find out after the fact. XM, GPS and OnStar all work as before (as best as I can tell without a signal strength meter). AM & FM antenna is in the back glass so I didn't expect any issues there and there were none.

    I upgraded my wife's 2012 SRX to the shark fin antenna about a year ago, and we have been very pleased. No reception problems and the appearance is really nice. I needed to include the SRX paint color code that was used to match the shark fin - Mocha Steel Metallic / WA706S

    I just ordered mine. They were very fast replying back and sending a Paypal invoice. He stated 1-2 weeks before shipment.

    Nine day delivery, ten minute install, looks just the way Cadillac should make it to begin with.

    Yep, I installed mine on Saturday. Looks much better than that big antenna. No reception loss that I can tell

    Re: Shark Fin Antenna (Update)

    People mentioned that it's made in Canada. I'm Canadian. So I order from a US seller, it's made in Canada, ships to the US seller, then ships back to me in Canada? Does anyone know if there is a direct Canadian seller for these?

    Or does Visual Garage ship it direct from the manufacturing place to the buyer? IE, will I get hit with border fees/duty? Captain, can you confirm the process?
    Thanks

    You won't regret it. It is a very easy install and adds to the stylish look of the vehicle and the company, visual garage, is top notch!!
