umm... It's an antenna, and while there's a nice little connection in there, you could do the following:

Buy a coil of bell wire at radioshack, along with a male and female banana clip and some foam tape. Solder up the bell wire to a male and female connection, make sure the female connection reaches where it needs to inside the car, and leave the male connection with plenty of length. Take off the clam and route the bell wire all over the place. Plug the male end (soltered to the wire routed around the clam) into the female end (routed to the receiver). Wrap it up in foam tape, wrap that up in some elecrical tape. Put clam back on.

I would do that before buying anything OEM or after market.

Oh, and I have a question: has anyone here ever used their CD player? REALLY? I have a ipod connection in my exige, and use a nano (solid state, as opposed to a spinning hard drive). I would attempt to transport unwrapped fine china in my car before I put a CD into the head unit slot. Do you get it out with tweezers when you hit a pothole, or do you pull the headunit and take the metal covers off?
