Fitting a Fuba to a type 44 sedan

As reported before I am currently living with a compromised antenna system
on the V8q thanks to a local dealer.  I've always kinda liked the Fuba
antenna on the Avant, but I assumed that that bulging trim piece on the
Avant was needed to cover up the amp, so I never investigated any further.
This morning I saw a new Passat with a Fuba mounted above the rear window,
centered on the roof ... so now I'm curious.

Has anyone seen the mounting of the Fuba's amp in a sedan in that location?
Any thoughts as to how much difficulty there's going to be with the
headliner on the V8q if I do decide to install one?  It seems to me that
since the amp for the rear antenna is built into the C-pillar I should be
able to power and a cable to it fairly easily.  Finally, has anyone seen
what the Fuba looks like in that position on a type 44 sedan?
