Looks good. I'd be curious how it works if anyone drives in a fringe area outside of the major metropolitan area how reception would be. Being how spread out Southern California is a lot of my favorite stations are quite a few miles away and I can barely keep HD radio from fading in and out (although I prefer without HD on the FM band anyway even that has quite a bit of fade sometimes).
blackbird - I ordered one and would likely be able to tell you, except for the fact that they don't expect delivery until mid-Jan. I live in the SF Bay Area, but my folks live down in Monterey - so I make that drive and have a pretty good sense of where the FM bands start to disappear on my drive down.
If someone else hasn't chimed in again, ping me in Jan.
At least on the newer Focus it's at the rear of the roof. I always thought it odd they'd place it right in front of the sunroof opening on my SVT Focus and the old cars where it would invariably cause some minor but noticeable wind noise while driving when the sunroof open (probably done to save money and reduce the amount/length of cable to reach the radio).
I ordered mine earlier this week, so I should have it before Xmas!
Considering this is one of only a few minor mods I plan to make on my ST and the fact it comes painted made it worth it to me to spend the $$. This is a mod I had planned on my old focus, but never got around to doing. So I guess the excitement of actually installing one of these on my ST makes it worth it to me as well.
