Here’s mine – only had it since mid November but done nearly 1200 miles! It’s only had a very quick clean (as it was absolutely filthy) so it may not be up to the high standards of some of you guys but at least it gave me the chance to fit the replacement washer jets and shark fin aerial
Shark fin aerial and washer jets are from PAINTMODZ (you’ll find them on facebook) and for those interested in the designer plates they are from Fourdot (https://www.fourdotdesignerplates.co.uk). If you want the plates with the RS logos (like mine) then you need to contact them directly and they will custom design them for you.
I followed what they recommended and did a test fit (i.e. got someone to hold it in place) and then put masking tape around the whole area leaving a couple of mm gap. When I was happy I then heated the double sided tape (after peeling off the back) with a hair dryer so it was really sticky and then it was just a case of being brave!
Haven’t noticed any problems with reception (although only done a few miles since fitting). Does anyone actually know whether the roof aerial does AM/FM/DAB and the GPS signal?
On my ST, I am sure the DAB aerial was embedded in the rear quarter window (my ST did not have privacy glass so it was clearly visible) – obviously can’t tell on the RS due to the privacy glass.
Concerning washer jet fitting – I unclipped the two clips on each side that hold the deadening material (under the bonnet) in place and this gives enough room to comfortably get your hands in. The wiring harness simply pulls apart relatively easily but you need to give the pipe feeding the water to the jet a fairly hefty tug (especially the passenger side). Once disconnected a push from the underside and the washer jet simply pops out. Fitting is the reverse.
