My 2015 ST had a longer antenna same as the other build levels, my 2017 ST has a shorter antenna now from factory, DAB works with it just fine.

If you can find a 2017 antenna then it will be a straight swap.

Still looks standard to me.
That's a non DAB one as well (no fakra cable from the base).
I'll get a photo of mine later so you see what mine is like.
Richbrook do a ford authorised stubby antenna but I would not like to rate it's signal quality or any availability of DAB reception.

DAB is part of the main antenna unit.

A DAB antenna base has a Fakra cable attached to it.

I just bought a ‘15 plate Titanium with no aerial screwed in! I didn’t notice it was missing!

What do I need to be factory standard?

Is the sharkfin DAB compatible?

How much are you looking for for the original? Signs of wear/damage?

I looked at the shark's fin but seller said it's may not work with DAB or traffic so haven't brought one yet.. spoke to my local garage they said the aerial has the DAB and TMC within it. But I do love the look of the shark's fin !
