Hi Guys,

couldnt find an answer to this one.

I was thinking of taking out the electric antenna and covering the hole
then installing an internal antenna on the parcel shelf or something

any problems in doing something like that?

shouldn't have much problems, since the BFs I think have their ariel in the rear windows somewhere?

should work fine so long as the ariel can pick up the signal easily.

phong =P~

you could take the carpet off the rear parcel shelf, and run it there. but then you'd need to run wires.
