Perfect height to not scrape the carport and reception is still good.

That's the one I bought. Works good and looks OEM. Haven't noticed any issues with reception of FM stations.

I cut 4 inches off my stock antenna so it didn't hit garage door. No change in reception. I made a new small ball for the tip of the antenna with JB putty. Perfect.

The length should be 26 to 32 inches, with 29 being ideal. As you shorten the antenna, the best reception shifts towards the high end and as you approach 26 inches all stations below 108 will lose some degree of reception. I pulled into the garage till the antenna interfered and cut it as long as possible.

It may have been mentioned already but on amazon they have an antenna call "the stubby" and its great! does not effect the signal and looks much better than the stock one. It is only about 3 inches tall.

Humm, I use mine as a "warning" for parking garages. If the antena hits I shy away from the garage. Sometimes works to my advantage, I tell parking attendants / venus I'm at that "my truck won't fit in the garage" and occasionally will be given premier parking for free.

This is the one I bought. $25 with prime. 1 min to swap out and the reception is as good if not better than stock in my 2011 with a pioneer HD radio. It is sooooo much smaller than I thought it would be when ordered. it looks cool but will not have any issues with a car wash or parking garage.
