I've noticed some people have installed a shark fin antenna.
I came across this antenna accessory:

Suzuki Australia Shark fin Antenna Screen12

I'm wondering if this Suzuki product is better or just the same as all the other Shark fin antennas on the Internet.

I purchased one of the cheap shark fins and decided against it as the mounting area was very sharp and was concerned it would damage the roofs paintwork as the 3m tape was quite uneven
If you look at the above Australian Shark Fin you can see it has a decent rubber gasket where it meets the roof so no doubt worth the extra

They either attach to the original aerial base fitted or mount through the hole already there when you remove the oe aerial

From the website, I like the black nudge bar, but no idea what I'd use it for. Rolling Eyes

i tried one of the aftermarket shark fins,the one i got had the rubber gasket and attached to the existing aerial base with a brass stud and nut,but the problem i had,the roof had that ceramic type coating put on by the original owner from new at the dealer,and no matter what i did the 3m tape will just not stick to it,so put the original whip antenna back on,i did try a stumpy one as well but reception was crap to say the least so never bothered just left it original...

I can see how a rubber is essential. I imagine it'll just need sticking on in place. Hutchy it's great you have the ceramic coating, but too bad it doesn't stay stuck on.

Can you please share where you got the shark fin from with the rubber gasket.
