    So my antenna has been a disaster since a car wash bent it, I just pushed it in and it's been ok since but the top broke off. Recently it's bad so...

    Those stubby rubber ones, they fit?
    (Link won't work)

    What's out there?

    I have the big factory black one that you can pull out and collapse (don't remember if it was powered but I don't think so).

    Thanks

    There are many aftermarket antennas out there . I will add a link to one site that carries an antenna that is a match to your car.

    You may even decide to get a power antenna .. If your radio does not have the remote wire for the antenna power just pick up a 12V power source and use a single pole toggle switch to power it up and down. This way when you go into a car wash you can lower your antenna so it don`t get broke

    Ive found the stock antenna to work best, if somebody has real world experience otherwise im listening. What i do is use the oem power one minus the power stuff, pulling it up by hand about 12" seems to be good. If im racing or at a photo shoot i push it back down, if i'm going on a serious road cruise where i need signal I'll pull it all the way up.
