Get rid of the remote control car look and still get excellent reception. The Detroit Tuned Stubby Antenna (made by Craven Speed) replaces the stock antenna with just twist of a hand. Coming in at only 4" tall, this antenna provides all the power of a full sized antenna at the fraction of the stock size. Most customers have reported no change in reception, but some insist that their radio comes in clearer with this hot little antenna affixed. The ones that have reported problems live literally in the middle of no where, or had other problems with they radio system that was not caused by the antenna. Read the reviews here!
Want something different? Go with the super short 2" or the bullet style!
The base of the antenna has a diameter of .63 inches, and is dual drilled for both a M5 & a M6 set screw To fit any MINI Cooper on the market. So if today you have a Gen 1 R53, but in 6 months you get more family and need to update to a Clubman this could fit many other cars, just find out what your car has and you will be all set for a quick and easy swap!
This stubby will fit a lot of vehicles...including:
MINI Cooper: All Year and Makes
Volkswagen: Jetta, Golf, & Rabbit
Scion tC & xA
Audi A4 & S4
Note: The 4" antenna will come with a small DT logo on the bottom like the photo shows.

Wanted to get rid of RC car antenna but heard reception was spotty. Had my 10 yr old daughter put this on my 06 R52S (yes it's really easy) and not experienced any reception issues so far..

Well made antenna cheaper than any other parts store that I've checked on the web.
