Yes; they work but the reception isn't as good as I think it should be. I think it should come with a taller whip/flexible antenna. It's on the 01 T4R I'm rebuilding right now.

Had the same problem with the 98 T4R and I didn't want to spend the money so I just pulled the antenna, clipped the plastic gear thing, then reinstalled it. The antenna motor runs for about 7 seconds when I turn off the car and probably when I start the car but with the radio on I don't hear it. Radio reception is as good as stock usually is which is pretty good.

I read about someone simply clipping off the plastic geared line then gently crimping each spot in the stock antenna where it expands so he can put it down to wash the rig. It's on my list of things to try.

As for this one with the adapter; I think I'll try a longer antenna since I already spent the money.
