I'll reserve the judgement for some typically good xluben DSLR pics.

Thanks. 1 and 4 are both taken while I was standing, so it gives a little better view of the fin. The other photos were just my phone.

That's a good point. They do flow pretty well together.

She looks good though.
I think that's the point, with the name "shark fin"

Looks great, exactly what I wanted to see and I'm very glad that the headliner does not need to be removed!

Nice write up~

I was gonna get a new antenna but I went for the vortex generator instead. I like the looks of it.

Why not both? Maybe that would be too much going on...

With most cars using the back window anymore, it's rare to see antennas. Surprised they just didn't integrate it into the spoiler...

+1. My 01 Legacy has the antenna in the rear glass. You would think they would do it on a 2013 too.

Your car looks so much better with the tint! I like the new addition. I didn't really notice the tint as much in the "good" photos... maybe because this one is more "real MN" winter car mode. Anyways. The addition of the tint and this new mod looks very clean!

Wonder how it would look on a gd body. Youd have to run the antenna wire all the way back to roof and cover the old location but it might look good

If you don't want to wait for the new site to come up, there is another company out there that makes a shark fin antenna. With arguably better fit and finish. I won't mention the company name since this is a thread geared towards Visual Garage. But if you look in the Interior & Exterior Modification thread, there is a comparison thread between the two companies.

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I just installed my VG shark fin this week on my 2014 wrx sedan. I love it!

You can still email them directly at: sales@visualgarage.com

They will submit a formal invoice to process the order. They are still in business but clearly not putting any effort toward their website.

Indeed they do!



But wow, the price on these went up. $100 bucks shipped which does not put it at much of an advantage over the Beat Sonic
