  • Question: 21 August 2018
    Car: Honda Civic - 1999-2005

    It says that the DAB aerial is included but I'm not sure what this aerial will be like. Is it one to stick on the window or can it not just use the existing aerial on my car?

    you will need to use a dab antenna that sticks to the window
