The sharkfin only does the satnav if you have it. If not, all you need is something to block the home. I bought a cheap radio aerial off eBay and left it unconnected. Cheaper than a Saab dummy one.

or something similar to this, there are more robust looking ones i would imagine, think they have 3m tape on the underside
SAAB is a SAAB, wether it be a GM, Lancia/Fiat or a V4 with a Ford Taunus engine in it, SAAB.

What ade posted would be good enough. I got one similar for my old 9-5. It included the aerial cable and retaining nut but I didn't bother with those. Just make sure the roof is absolutely clean of polish, etc. and the 3M tape should do the job. Mine was still stuck fast when I sold the car two years and 30k miles later.
