    Sorry I meant the current gen. Okay. So if they’re aluminum I won’t be able to mount it without the adhesive disk. Was trying to avoid that because I’m unsure if it will harm the paint.

    No aluminium isn't magnetic enough for that (it's only infinitesimally magnetic). But there are magnetic areas on the car - doors, roof, frame.

    thank you. The problem is if you put it too close to windows it causes oscillation between the interior and exterior antennas. I might have to use the adhesive disk which sucks.
