I think there's three wires
thick black cord goes to the radio
thin black wire=ground
and (power) black/red wire goes to the radio
(for 98-01 , different for 1st gen)

yeah, theres like 5 wires for a first gen if anybody has replaced an antenna on a first gen. I didnt just replace the mast cuz the whole assembly got bent up, i guess the car wash like pulled the mast back and bent up the mechanism.

I was actually thinking of shaving my antenna and putting the antenna off of the new bmw718 on my car. Does anyone know of anyone doing this or if its even possible? The antenna kinda looks like a tiny shark fin in the middle of the roof (in back). I just saw one yesterday and thought it would be better than the big bulky mast. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

touchless does jack on dirt so why bother? :p

since the paint on my car has tons of fine scratches (which I can see with frost and salt build up, i just go to the soft cloth wash until summer rolls around and I can wash, wax and polish at home.
