The BMAX is a great car, but parking it in a garage can be a problem if your garage is of a normal size.

The factory spec aerial is quite long as you can see on my photo.http://www.bmaxownersclub.co.uk/forum/mad-bmax_topic832.html


You can drive in fine, but driving out is a tricky because the long aerial just catches the garage door on the way out.


For a week I was taking the aerial off before putting the car away, and that was not helpful, so I went to Halfords to find an alternative.


What I got was one of thesehttp://www.halfords.com/motoring-travel/car-accessories/exterior-styling/richbrook-car-aerial


I found that the DAB reception is good... or just as good as the factory fitted. DAB can be prone to interference from buildings etc... So I tested this around my area, found dead spots then put the factory aerial on and I still had the same dead spots. So I think the replacement works well.


I also think it looks nicer!


If you want a Ford Brand on the aerial, then they have that too.http://www.halfords.com/motoring-travel/car-accessories/exterior-styling/richbrook-ford-aerial

Thanks for the tip, I was considering a stubby one I found on ebay but I now think a trip to Halfords is on the cards.
