Just wondering who makes a nice shorty antenna to replace the lightning rod on the roof.

eBay looks like they got the cheapest and the biggest selection.

I got this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2463904927&category=33639

It's 3.5". I like the additional length/size better than the 2.5", it seems to fit the antenna base better (aesthetically speaking). And I don't think the 6" antennas look right at all on the 3.

But it's all personal preference! Just go to eBay, type in 'mazda3 antenna' and you should see a nice assortment from which to choose.

I am getting an S-2000 antenna as well.....I am starting to wonder if it is just the car that makes it look so sexy though :shock:

Anyone got a pic of the antenna for the S2000/Element up close, how does it look with the taper of the base? I thought I saw a pic on these forums but couldn't find it.

it doesn't look quite right.. it's not flush with the antenna base of the 3.

I heard all the short antennas get worse receptions than the stock. Plus, is it really worth buying when someone can easily unscrew it? I have a friend that likes unscrewing antennas. He gave me a stock one from a Jetta in case the one on my GTI gets jacked. I said "No thanks, but thanks" and then I kept it.

This is off-topic, but that wing is so RICE! How could someone bring themselves to screw up their S2000 with that?

The first thing I noticed was the "rice" wing, not the antenna or the overall nice car. Also off topic, I think the Mazda3 black taillights look better than the S2000 ones.

considering i don't listen to the radio when i drive (too many annoying ads) does this really matter?? ;) although i am a little bothered by how easy the antenna is to remove by any pranksters that come around...
