Has anyone with and F56 fitted a short sports antenna? If so does it work ok with the DAB?

Ive heard varying reports as to whether it works properly or not.

Had one from day one and no issues...nav, radio, dab etc...

They are all the same which ever year you have from 2000-2016..

DAB drops out sometimes, normally when tall building are close to the road or in the country but then FM is also hard to get...

Had far less problems with DAB on the F56 with the spots antenna than I did with the coupe

Higher on the hatch than the coupe, could have been the roof blocking the signal a bit?

I have one on mine and it's fine, although the DAB was really poor on the A4 from Marlborough through to Hungerford today, but that may just be a mix of a poor coverage area and the really bad weather....
