Reportedly, glass antennas are not preferred for performance. I can't really say because I've never owned one. My friends tell me that their performance is substandard when compared with other ones.
I think my friend told me the better version of a glass antenna might have a ground on it. I prefer using magnetic mounts even though the coax runs through the door opening. If you must use this method, find a door that opened less frequent.
