I removed existing bee sting aerial from my Audi S3 2001 and installed a shark fin 8P0 035,503 E in and now get no reception.

The original aerial had a box on it (a amplifier?) Do I need to add this inline? Has the shark fin no amplifier inside?

Your old stinger antenna was used for AM and FM. The sharkfin is ONLY for GPS, GSM telephone, and SAT radio (USA). There is no sharkfin antenna that includes AM/FM reception.

Does this have a FM aerial in it so I can get radio in the UK?

Richard,
The pix in this picture does not match the description. It has US-based SAT (Sirius/XM) connectors (black and white). I would be cautious of bidding on this.

See my long post on upgrading to the sharkfin in this forum. Good luck!

That is what I have at the moment and I can confirm that GPS works great but no FM.

Thanks for the advice missed your post somehow. I will give it a miss. I think I may end up going back to the dreaded whip aerial but with GPS.

There is no sharkfin or submarine antenna that includes FM or AM radio connections. There is no physical way to get the antenna length within the enclosure required to pick up FM or AM signals.
