I'm looking to replace my standard ariel with a shorter, chubbier one. I've heard of a couple that will fit with a slight modification [Honda S2000, Sharon, Hummer] Which is the most common and easy to get hold of? Any details of price and stockist would be mint...

I've got one from a Vauxhall VX220 fitted, looks very OEM & very similar to the VW item, but is about 4" shorter. Cost me se7en quid

Me too, no noticeable degradation in signal and looks OEM.

I've heard that the Honda screw thread fits but the base is a slighty different size. If you want a Honda look that fits perfectly, have a look at www.enfig.com. No loss of signal.

Dead right.. the base is slightly larger than the vw aerial base.. by about two mil overall, i'd say.

Same here. I've also tried the Honda stubby but the end is a tad wider than the VW aeriel and doesn't fit flush to the base.
