I got 620mm for the first measurement, and 25mm for the second.
There is also another body feature that may be a good cross reference.
Looking from inside the trunk, at the fender lip, there is a "line" which
is actualkly the trailing edge of the sheet metal of the fender, where it
begins to join up with the rest of the body by the c-pillars. The
antenna is 120mm forward of this line.
