Finally got them to get a replacement part in and when they removed the original antenna they pulled paint off the roof. When they looked at the satellite antenna under the cover there was a broken part there that had to be replaced. The car came pre-wired for Sirius radio, so I asked them to install that at the same time.
Tomorrow it will be 13 days they have had the car. they had to repaint the roof, fix antenna inside and refasten the new shark fin. Service mgr said today that the spend over 8 hours reprogramming the car.
Hopefull I will get it back tomorrow, although no promises.
Anyone heard of such problems with the antenna and the paint? The car is 3 months old and I hope they have it back to perfect, especially the paint job.
