Diversity amp antenna, straight swap?

Post by sideysid » Thu Dec 14, 2017 3:28 am

I’m looking to swap over my diversity antenna, to a DAB version as my 2011 F20 (no combox) didn’t come with it as standard.

I’m replacing the head unit, will do the coding etc and will run an additional FAKRA cable to from the diversity to the HU.

So by my understanding, is the central locking still controlled by the diversity antenna so will need to be the same mhz like on the older 1 series?

I also understand that DAB-L goes from the shark fin aerial and DAB-III (That we use in the UK) from the rear screen. Does all F20s have the aerial intergrated in the rear screen, even if DAB wasn’t an option?
