what to do about my antenna?

i know i might sound blonde for posting this but i really want your opinions. I went through a car wash a couple weeks ago and i thought i was listening to my cd 'cause of the song on the radio. found out otherwise when i got out of the car wash. my power antenna was bent. and stuck up. i bent it back as much as i could but now it doesn't go flush w/ the car. stops about 6 inches from hatch. power antenna costs 50 for part. Should i just replace it or switch to a diff antenna? i think its a little to tall any way.

If you think its too tall... and you bent your stock one...

Then I'd say just switch it out to the S2K antenna thumbsup

you could try taking it to the dealer and asking them to repair it... it may be harder to install the s2k antenna in your situation since you have a power antenna

yeah, normally with the standard antennae, you just unscrew the stock and screw in the s2k, but with the power it's more complicated...

if you have a power antenna than s2k antenna is not that easy...

you need to swap out the whole antenna base as well as the actual antenna.

yeah, i went to the dealership the next day and they were going to charge me 150 to fix, even tho it's still under warranty. i'll try another dealership. i like being the only gt w/ a power antenna. i thought about putting a jetta antenna on. what do you guys think about that?
