Avante Rear Antenna rubber seal

Hi All... Just place deposit for the 2nd hand avante today, found the rear antenna rubber seal actually broken.

I did viewed 5 2nd hand Avante, all have similar problem. If i change a new one, i believe very soon this problem will happen again. so I'm wondering can we remove this antenna and cover the hole by something else? Anyone did this?

What are the major service need to do for avante car at 60k mileage?

Thanks...

avante rear antenna is basically useless, unless u wanna hang kopi there

the actual functional one is on the top left corner of the windscreen (inside), bosch brand

anyway for servicing i always do mine at whitesnail

since antenna is useless, is anyone here removed the antenna and cover the hole?

Google, found that a lot of ppl give positive feedback to Song Yi Auto Parts Trading, selling geninue parts with good price. So It's good to buy parts and bring to mechanic to fix or just drive to workshop? What you guys normally do?
