Why did you buy this?
Looks like a decent product [ RODECKER Dec 11, 2016 ]
I needed to replace the antenna on my '99 A4 Avant, and this appears to be the correct antenna. Much more reasonably priced than the Audi part! [ Phil Aug 10, 2016 ]
OEM antenna does not work anymore. Hopefully this one does. [ Lisa Jan 18, 2016 ]

Sorry can't help. Purchased for my daughters Beetle. Ended up having to cut off connections that came with the antenna and spliced in the cars connectors. Did not run the antenna all the way to the radio. Does not work well and now have to spend big bucks at VW dealer to replace. [ RICHARD P Dec 17, 2015 ]
