Default 2in black antenna

Tested this from a friend's car before I bought it, but it fits(most antenna's are all the same size). So much better than the long antenna that is stock on the 2012 Mustang. It's a Perrin shorty antenna. If you're interested, google shopping will find it. They have 2in, and 4in sizes available. There is a slight step where it screws on, but I plastidipped it, and it's sealed and good now.

Not a problem at all if you don't use the radio or, if you DO use it, your stations are local. Otherwise, you'll be hunting for new stations every 10-20 miles or so.

I would get this. I use satellite radio 99% of the time. The few times I use the FM radio (even with no antenna) i get the channels just fine. Right now I just have a black painted bolt in the antennas place. Didn't want an antenna at all (even a shorty) and I didn't like the way the open hole looked (Ghetto).

edit: interesting, marketed and sold as a mitsubishi evo antenna.... and not all antennas are the same. Some can be different in diameter and thread density. Most are the same these days.

I know what you mean about the open hole look. I leave my antenna off because I get tired of removing it to put the car cover on, plus I have Sirius Sat. and my local stations are strong. However I need something short to put over that hole. Anyone with some ideas?

the blow by racing shorty antenna is pretty short and has excellent reception still.

That is really cool, that will be a good addition to my '97.

Does anyone know is a 2005 antenna will fit a '97? They only list the newer mustangs.

I cut a hole in my car cover for my shorty antenna. But then again, it sits in the garage sometimes for as much as 2-3 weeks and the cover is for dust prevention. I don't think my cover ever saw rain.
