Sharan Antenna Replica for most Volkswagens

The standard antenna for Golfs without factory fitted Satellite Navigation is a large whip antenna which is pretty visually unappealing. If you don’t mind taking a small hit on antenna performance there is a cheap and easy upgrade available in the form of a 6.5cm (2 5/8″) long rubber antenna that has a 5mm screw fitting.

I purchased this upgrade from parts4euro who claim that it’s compatible with the following cars.

BMW Z3, Z4 Coupe & Roadster, E46 3-series convertible, Honda Si, Sir Hatchback, S2000, Lexus IS200, IS300, New MINI Cooper, Mazda Protege 5, Mazda3, Mazda6, Mitsubishi Lancer, Lancer Evolution, Nissan 350Z, Ponticac Vibe- Saturn 2003+ USA L-series only (L200 and L300), Scion xA, tc, Suzuki Aerio, Toyota New Corolla, Matrix, Echo Hatchback, 2004+ Prius, VW Beetle, Golf, GTI, Rabbit, Jetta, Passat

Click here to see the product on the parts4euro website and if you want to purchase this for only USD$29.99 click here. This is a special price for members of golfmkv forum members.

If you’re in Australia you can purchase this from dubaddiction for AUD$24.95 + delivery here.

    A much cheaper way to do this (especially if you’re in Europe) is go to a Peugeot or Citroen dealer and order part number 6561 N3. Its about £4.35+VAT, and all you need to do is cut a bit of the thread off and screw it in. I’ve had this fitted to my MK5 for a year and it works just as good as the ugly long type.

    If you’re in the US, they’re sold with a small price uplift on, search for something like “Citroen short aerial” and you’re all set.
