I should get one of those ebay fins for my Gen Coupe. It has the crappiest rear window antenna I have ever seen.

Is the Elantra shark fin a good am/fm antenna?

OkieRich,

These do not fit on a Santa Fe sport as per the eBay item listing. Thanks for trying but I am trying to find the USA shark fin.
Just so you know the ebay "car compatibility" option is total bull crap and not always a good tool to use to see if an item is useable on your car. That fin should work

Ottawa! That's my home town...anyway, I would just call a U.S dealer and have it shipped to your local Hyundai dealership.

I guess this might be my only option. I don't really want to buy a fin made for another vehicle. I really want the Santa Fe sport fin... made for the Santa Fe sport.

The shark fin antennas are usually not a radio antenna but GPS and XM.

On my Genesis Coupe it is a grid on the back window. A very crappy design.

XM from the fin, AM/FM from the rear window grid. I haven't experienced any problems over two different Elantra's with reception quality. Only FM I listen to are the two sports talk channels in our area. Most of my ear time is spent tuned to the XM bands.

Sorry about the PQ on this, I'm not patient when it comes to filling in schematic's on line DWG's.

I don't have a 2013 HMC drawing, but this should give you an idea about how close the two are by comparing your unit to the attachment. You should note that if you have to replace the complete antenna unit to accommodate a fin type the headliner needs to be removed, that's a lot of work for a look ..... but then again isn't that what we look to forum's for ..... :eek:

Good luck.

I fell for this trap also... as mentioned, it does not fit. I've seen the overseas models, and the south american model that have the shark fin... saw this on ebay - and the base of the shark fin version is about half as big (opening) as it needs to be.
Anyone was a plastic shark fin decoration, it's still sitting in my garage! $20 + shipping and it's yours!!!!
