You can buy an OEM replacement mast but it is likely to be more expensive than a complete regular, non OEM, motor antenna. I had to replace the antenna mast after the garage door caught it... The replacement mast (by Hirschmann) cost E40, a complete new 'nameless' antenna from a parts shop was only E21. (I have fitted one on my Sonett as well.) -- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96 '91 900i
