2016 Latitude Radio Antenna Question

The vehicle has the stock antenna on it, which I have to unscrew before going through a car wash. Radio reception is ok. Any recommendations on a screw on antenna I can replace that would work so I don't have to take it off for car washes?

I was thinking perhaps a shorter, stubby one?

Not sure if you're still on this but I bought one from Amazon and it's essentially useless. It took the stations down to maybe 20% of what the factory antenna gets. When you primarily use Spotify for music it's not an issue but beware that you'll lose tons of reception.

Pros: Looks awesome. doesn't need attention at a car wash.
Cons: You'll only receive 20% of the stations you used to and those ones you get will be about 80% the quality they used to be.

I bought the Stubby Replacement Antenna from CravenSpeed on Amazon. The forum won't let me link things yet lol.
