I actually considered making a nub antenna to put in there. We're so used to satellite radio that a terresterial radio function serves us no use. I had the antenna on my mustang shaved off when I had it painted lol.
I expect it could have been done for less indeed, but what the hell! This thing looks very dramatic with the contrast between the DARK red and that ivory interior. My wife likes it far better than the 2012 also, which don't hurt!
