Hello all,

Picked up a Midnight Blue AWD last week, with NY winters the AWD is a must have.

Already looking into more mods. I started with an antenna swap (from the “whip” to the carbon fiber “stubby” replacement). Next is a headlight upgrade, then possibly some sound deadening panels.

Im looking forward to exploring the forum .

Welcome to the site. Welcome to the TB club. How did you replace the Antenna? Folks have tried here and don't think it was done with ease.

Thanks, brownactive,

The carbon fiber swap was a stubby one from Amazon that threads into the base and replaces the whip style. Thread out the old one, thread in the new one. Took me about 9 seconds total.

I didn’t do anything invasive (at least not yet lol). Next step is headlight bulbs and brake light bulbs. And to run the wires for a dash cam.

Lance Link,
Welcome to the site. Please post a couple of pictures of your new ride. I think there are some people here who would be interested in seeing your antenna mod.

This antenna mod was actually from a post I found on this site (I’ll have to see if I can dig it up), but the carbon fiber antenna was $7 on Amazon.

I do need to clarify that the only part I’ve changed in regards to the antenna was the threaded shaft. As much as I wanted to change the base to a shark fin only, I’m not ready to start those kind of mods. Plus, the post/thread I referenced above also mentioned that they struggled to find a suitable replacement base.

I think it’s an improvement over the “go kart” antenna.

Congrats on your new car. Nice looking color! The first thing I did was replace the antenna also. The OEM antenna makes it look like an oversized RC car.
