That might also work, provided we're certain that the shark fin is exclusively for SiriusXM. Hopefully they didn't cram the radio and GPS antennae in there as well, in which case we would be out of luck.

*sigh* Goddammit...

The only glimmer of hope left is that the script reads "may have", so perhaps there's a chance that mine may NOT have the fin. I didn't want the electronics package or B+O stereo when I placed my order, so maybe the base radio still gets the dome antenna?

Just picked up my 2020 GT on april 2. it was built on jan 30 and does have the small antenna on it. Question for anyone who has the new sync 3 system. I had a 2018 GT with sync 3 and the name of the song would display at the top of gauges when driving (401a package) when listening to sirius. On my 2020 GT with 401a package, it is showing a musical note at the top of the display, but no song titles. if i switch to usb, it does show the song title, just not on sirius like my 2018 did. Cant figure out why it would show a musical note but no song title. ive looked in the book and everywhere i can find in case i missed a setting and cant seem to find one to have the song title display. Anyone else have this going on??

Not a fan of shark fin roof antenna. Obvious car cover is not used, as it will punch a hole after repeated use.

So I figured I would buy a older one and replace in myself. So I got a older and they can’t really be changed out here is what I found. So it looks like I’m stuck with the ugly shark fin.

Of course it would never be that simple. Ford purposely changed the mounting points and connectors so people wouldn't ditch the fin.

The only other thing I can think of is to move it to the rear speaker deck on the inside. Then see if I could get the roof wrapped to cover the whole.

Really, come on. It's a different antenna designed to work with the latest radios. It looks the way it looks. Ford didn't intentionally do this just to piss off Mustang forum members. Sometimes I think we just look for things to bitch about. Get in your car and drive it. You can't see it from inside.

I guess if I had a 19 with the cleaner looking antenna I wouldn’t have anything to complain about but I don’t I special ordered my car to the spec I wanted and I got it with this big ugly dick sticking out of my roof. Sorry me trying to make my car the way I want it bothers you.

I think your wrong. I think ford sat around a big table and said let’s screw those Mustang 6G forum guys, let’s bolt on a shark fin and whilst we’re at it, let’s introduce a AWD hybrid to really piss them off ... :cwl:

Don’t believe the hype, they ARE out to get us ... :cwl:

WD :like:

ps : I still don’t like the shark fin ... :puke:
