Anyone else facing similar issue?

+1. The cooled glove box is in name only. I removed the glove box and checked that the vent behind is so small and the connection to the glove box leaks out half the air as well. It's cooled in name only. I won't heat the bottle but sure as hell doesn't keep it AC chill.

Buy from local accessory store as their cost is 3-4 times on the online stores I checked.
I too had the problem with the long atenna in the layered parking in my office so I ordered this from Aliexpress which looks just like the Sparco antenna but the reception is horrible. I don't get coverage half of the time. Do you personally have experience with this? Did I fix it in the wrong way?

Yes, I have been using the Sparko Antennae for more than a Year, I don't have single issue with reception. If its not shaking and is firmly fixed than it's not the installation that's faulty but the piece. If its a bit lose, use other screw for fixing from the packaging.

It seems the issue was with the passenger seat drawer storage. A little early to draw any conclusions. I will be happy if that's the case.
