Visual garage has the shark fin, nice addition.
Got my spoiler on eBay, no problems. Paint was an exact match in both cases.

things are not as they appear to be.........

The visual garage sharkfin is fantastic. The color matches perfect and the reception is as good as stock. I had it on since 2011 and no problems.

Or when your antenna is now crooked after putting a car cover on for a month!

No verdict on the sharkfin yet, still waiting weather to be warm enough to install it

You are aware that a roof spoiler and a shark fin antenna cover are two different things, right? We are talking about the former, not the latter.

Fully aware, posts 1, 3 and 5 mention the Shark fin already

345G8, there's a few pictures on Google images with the shark fin + a roof spoiler together - I got better results only searching for "pontiac g8 roof spoiler" and leaving out the shark fin part for some reason? Hopefully that helps a bit.

I got my VG Shark Fin summer of 2013. I have never noticed any degradation in reception, either AM or FM. I have the Holden rear sunshade. It's not really a spoiler but I suppose it blocks some sunlight from the back seat, but not a whole lot. It's definitely bigger than the painted kind.

I've attached a couple of photos of the sunshade, one from a car show in '15 and one that I lightened up a lot to try to show it in one of the most profile shots I can find.

I just want to see if it makes the back of car look over done or cluttered if you get what I mean.

i have a visual garage fin. 5 years old and still in great shape and an excellent mod in my opinion. Highly recommend you really take your time installing and lining up. Mine is ever so crooked and it sets my ocd off from time to time.
