You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.

Anyone found a replacement antenna for the Jimny? Mine isn't physically broken, however I get no signal out of it what so ever. I have seen this:
Which a) is in dollars, b) has no contact info to ask if they ship to the UK and c) its just a 3D printed part so longevity will be an issue unless its soaked in epoxy.

I know this is a different situation, but my neighbour had a DAB radio put in by Halfords, they fitted an almost invisible aerial to the windscreen which works superbly.
I'm not sure if they disconnected the original aerial or if that is still required to reeceive FM but I don't see why the new DAB aerial in the windscreen wouldn't also do the job for FM.
I certainly wouldnt go through the hassle and expense of importing a component like this uneccessarily - the chances are you may get stung by import duties as well.
IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS
If the aerial is intact, perhaps have a look under the dash. Depending on the model, year and if someone has messed with it before, some Jimnys aerial lead plugs into an extension lead to the head unit. The 2000 Jimny I just sold had the standard unit but the lead had an extension cable.
Extension cable can fall or be kicked out, might save you some work.
On DAB systems I have worked with, most have a seperate aerial with a different connector to the usual aerial lead. If retro-fitting one, most manufacturers suggest mounting their aerial lead away from the FM aerial one.
My current project is HERE!
Car is still in the shop getting the rust repaired (they are doing it in the background when there is time as I have another car I can use)
Will dig behind the dash and see if there is a join. I am certain there will be after reading this.
To everyone else, I am not keen on buying the linked one at all, it’s expensive and it’s 3D printed. He doesn’t state what out of, which if is PLA will warp and cause your roof to leak after the first warm day.
similar to this one, bought it last year from here: www.ebay.com/usr/rfsuppliers?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754
