BMW antenna for Mini?

To be honest I dont like antennas at all at least not phallic looking ones. Even the stubby is too long. I was wondering new if you could get an antenna that does not stick out at all. Something similar to the way BMWs do it. Flat.

Are you sure the antenna you're looking at is actually an AM/FM antenna? Most, if not all of the cars that have pods like that use them just for a GPS and/or satellite radio antenna. On those cars the AM/FM antenna is integrated into a window... 2003-2004 MINIS with Nav were like this...

Check Alta for a short antenna.

I also hate the long antenna and got an Alta one almost 3 years ago. Great look, and a good price!

Product description says "Non Functioning" and "Hollow". Doesn't sound like an antenna, just a cover for where the antenna was!

How do you read it?

Holy crap dude, no need to blow up every thread. Pick the most recently posted on and do that or create a new one. I got all excited that there were new threads to read since lunch but all of them are about sharkfin antenna.
