Cheers duncho.

The 2 outside sensors are pretty much on the corner mate. The further you go round, the curve causes a little gap against the flat sensors :(

Re your PM. Here are the pre install photos:

No, not yet. I search for active antenna with DAB support. So far, I was not lucky to find a good one to be honest.

I have seen one with built in amplifier. But even OEM NISSAN sharkfin says it does not support DAB :(

I know, I purchased the one from Nissan and I noticed DAB not supported only when it was in place. The second antenna I bought from Celsus (if I remember well) but that one didn't work at all.

I'm going to research an amplifier to fit for DAB support. I'm sure it will be simple. Here's the finished article:



The colour match is spot on!

Does the antenna cover hold firmly on the roof? the sticky tape is not much thick and I would be afraid to get the car cleaned at carwash. Here is one of DAB amplifiers you could buy. It includes slitter, which you need as well:  http://www.amazon.de/DAB_amplifier

The sticky gasket is a custom 3M product. From what I've read the 3M products are very good. It's extremely well stuck on. I don't use machine car washes (bad experience one time) but I think on the instructions it says avoid using car wash for 1 week. I think it would be fine to be honest.

Thanks, I'll look into the amplifier. Is there a power source already there in roof lining?

Yes, there is power source wired together with the aerial cable. Have you replaced Nissan Connect with aftermarket unit supporting DAB?

Not yet. I am adding DAB to my list though. :)
