    Hi all and ta in advance.
    My electric aerial has died and I need a replacement, I would really appreciate any experiences and recommendations you have.
    There are plenty out there but which should I buy? I don't want to have to do this twice, I already regret the amount of underseal I've got to get through before I even see the current one.

    Cheers chaps.
    Jon

    Thank you
    You have confirmed what I suspected, it ain't cheap but it should last

    No probs, I'm sure Francis (Laser) will confirm / deny the above before you buy, just drop him a PM

    am fairly sure it was Francis-de-Laser that recommended the Hirschmann Auta a while ago .. fits right onto the Capri wiring layout

    Hirschmann aerials are well made, Mercedes used them for decades.
