Minor Mods to 2011 Compass

I finally got some free time to replace the 2 OEM parts of my compass that i disliked the most. The ugly wipers and the uglier radio antenna.

Replaced them with these..

Nice. I got the same style wipers on both of my cars, work nice. I also have a shorter antenna on mine too. The OEM antenna is so ugly and old looking. They have better ones.

Where did you get the antenna? I know a lot people here have the one from Canadian Tire but I keep looking at Antenna X on ebay.

Looking good. What brand wipers did you use? Also on my list to change. Hate the standard ones. Will do the wife's Mini at the same time.

They look like Bosch icons. I have them on my Nissan truck, they are awesome!

w4rh4wk. Thank You, they are the icons indeed

ronjr8102. Thank You, I could have gone with a shorter antenna, but i still wanted to catch good reception. I get great reception with this.

giantsnation. This is an antenna X product. Cheap price, easy to install and looks good.

Donfd. Thank You. They are bosch icons. Too bad they dont make them for the rear wiper assembly. The rear still is OEM aka ugly
