    Disappointing, AM not working, Geek Squad no help.

    Purchased this as part of the install of a new car radio. Geek Squad confirmed it would work in my Passat. It was installed by the Geek Squad. I failed to confirm that all its features worked before I left. ( I assumed Geek Squad would have done this.) AM radio is not working. Not sure if the problem is the antenna because we have to set up an appointment for the Geek Squad to determine the problem. They were not as helpful dealing with this problem as they were when we were buying the product. During a phone conversation regarding the problem, the Geek Squad member said it was probably a manufacturer's issue, leading me to believe this is not the first time they had this issue. They should have checked everything before they turned the car back to me.

    Installed an aftermarket in my sister's 2009 Volkswagen Jetta - I taped the cord on this to the main because it was unnecessary, in retrospect I should've bought this on Amazon, but I was naive. This will get the job done - if you don't want to wait this is what you should get and of course where you should get it.

    I was told by the best buy "pros" that this was the exact thing I needed for my 2010 jetta radio install. It was not. Plus once I opened the package, the wire fell out of the adapter and we had to rig it back together.

    The antenna connected to stock harness perfectly. The reception of my new stereo with this adapter actually improved the reception I was getting before. I can actually listen to the radio now.

    Metra products work well. Be sure to get correct adapter for German car- EU 55- single antenna plug. EU 56- FAKRA double antenna plug.

    This wasn't the correct piece for my particular system even though the in-store program said it was. I had to repurchase from a different store due to availability.

    You get what you buy thankfully it's true with this product. I would say a slight increase in reception but to most it's overall the same as stock. Needed for aftermarket head unit

    Works good no complaints, didnt have it on the shelf but an employee came to help looked it up and grabbed it from the back. Installed it that day with no problems.

    This antenna accessory was needed for my car audio since it has to be from manufacturing (German). It's expensive.

    Making sure you have the correct antenna for the car stereo you purchased is very important. Using your original antenna is fine if you don't need HD Radio.

    I had Best Buy install the new radio into my son's car. Appointment was on time. Surprised to find out that you need another antenna adapter for XM radio.

    It's an antenna. But my car has two connections. This on only has one. I had to modify it to make it work... this is the only one offered for my car

    I was told by the store associate that this was necessary to install the aftermarket car stereo. It constantly drops a signal

    Perfect fit for my 03 Jetta. Just had to plug it in. the only down side is that it does not seem to help increase the reception.
