    I no longer have a car aerial

    ...because a very poor automatic wash took it away from me. I'm suitably grumpy now that I can't find out what's happening on the way to work any more.

    So, I'm in the market for a replacement aerial for a 2002 Nissan Micra, if anybody has any suggestions?

    DOn't know about the exact model, but if your stereo head has an power aerial out then this might be a good buy Fully Automatic Car Aerial > Maplin

    Some ittle w***** sole mine last night. OK, so it was only an old metal coat hanger poking out what remained of the aerial, but it worked!

    I do have the output for a power aerial, but where does it mount - the rear quarter window? My car experience is nil.

    Try CPC - they have a range of aerials. If it's the original factory 'beesting' aerial, it should be a cheap screw-in replacement

    On the roof, fixed length and facing backwards along the car (hence the problem when the air blower passed towards the bonnet at a height of approximately three inches...).
