Default 2017 OEM Shark Fin Antenna swap

I want to replace the OEM paint-matched shark fin antenna to a black antenna like the S207. I have a 2017 STI limited equipped with GPS/SiriusXM.

Itís listed in the diagram as #86321D, but the part numbers are different based on the paint color, I think I need #86321VA500V2 or #86321FJ300V2. One is made by Harada and the other is made by Yokowo.

Does anyone know if all the OEM antennas are universal 2015+? I believe in my Ď14 there was a different antenna system based on if you had a regular radio vs GPS.

86321FJ300V2 Is the correct and updated part # for the antenna made by Yokowo. Yokowo actually sued Harada in 2018 regarding antenna technology patent infringement.

Why don't you just wrap it?

I was going to post the same video, that's probably the best explanation for headliner removal. I'm not a fan of vinyl wrap. Not sure if painting it or wrap would effect reception.

Only one way to find out! The thing is wrap is easily removable. Paint you're kind of stuck with and a pain the ass to change.
