Q
My Sportswagen has two antennas (glass and whip antennas) with two cables and connectors that are keyed slightly differently. Does this green dual-antenna connector definitely have the proper keying notches for these two inputs?

Good question Dave. That antenna adapter does work with select 2009 and up VW vehicles. What is the exact year of your Sportswagen? That adapter should have all the necessary connections to maintain the factory AM/FM antenna connection but you can reach out to one of our Product Advisors here: https://bit.ly/2qPH8aN to make sure it is a good fit with your specific vehicle and that you have everything else you need to complete installation. --Cosmo

Q
Why do I still get static in almost all my radio chanals and I still using a amplified adapter?

Did you connect the blue wire power antenna to the other blue wire for power antenna. I was getting status too and I didn't connect those wires because I really don't have a power antenna but I connected them just for fun and the static was gone.

I have the same problem; all my connections are made as the instructions stated and I've never had good reception. Unfortunately, I've never been able to figure this one out.
