Hello Buddies! Would you please tell me the function of the pole or an antenna that is attached to the left fender of my 2001 vitz.
I think it helps in judging distance while parking.
may b catching free internet service...
I also think it is a parking aid,.. not 100% sure though. check if there is a wire going to it.
I dont think, the purpose of the antenna is to check the distance, if that would be the case then they must have attached it to the bumpers.
in japan they have alot of toll plazas and automated paying systems it might have something to do with that too. like i said earlier, check if there is a wire going to the "pole"
Maybe its just a Showoff antenna ! lol !
Its a parking aid so that you can calculate how far the left front corner of your car is from any obstacle. The S Class Mercedes had 2 antennas (retractable) on its rear which were raised when reverse gear was selected to assist in reversing.
@mehran, only the prefacelift W140 S-class had this aid. after the facelift this option was no longer offered.
Most of the people (almost all ) here use this for judging the distance.
I think all of the VITZ has the glowing blue light with an antenna.

no light and no antenna on the fender either in my car. the only antenna i have is on my roof.
Instead of editing i accidently deleted my post.
But i finds this anteena some what real helpful for the driving on narrow roads.
@u4usman4uindeed they can be helpful, but since i drive a defender all the time i find it very easy to place the vitz where i want it to be (without the antennas) since it is ALOT smaller.

@storm the paki flag, the PW sticker add's about 30 WHP if not more :D, Type R adds 15 more HP
