    e46 Roof Fin Replacement

    Hey guys... The previous owner put in some cheesy plastic roof fin with an LED that's now broken and may be causing the parasitic draw as well.

    Where can I get a replacement for this that looks good? I'm sure there has to be a hole in the roof there, or else how would it get the power right?

    I asked advanced auto parts but the guy hardly knew what I was even talking about, gezuz.

    Dang $47, is that with a real antenna? Do all these e46 need an antenna there or...

    I saw one for like $10 on another site without the antenna.

    the OEM sharkfin comes with a built in antenna and wire that runs inside the exterior rear window gasket and down into the trunk.

    the OEM one does not cut a hole in the roof and sits right on the edge of the rear roof skin with its own gasket tha hides the wire as it feeds into the rear window gasket.

    the one you have you wont know until you remove it if its just a stick on one or has a hole.
