Anyone found a stubby aerial yet that works in the UK properly on these SLK350 R171's?

I am still awaiting nervously for the "Original Brabus Antenna" to arrive - which was supposedly posted this week. I will let you know, even though i will be publically broadcasting my stupidity of spending £100 of a dude antenna I expect! [xx(]

Hello,

Just came back from picking my new SLK 350 from the dealer tonight. I asked him about the aerial and actualy got an answer that makes sense. The aerial in the SLK is used for pretty much everything (radio, key, phone, etc.).
It's not the same in the SL. So the top part could be swapped for the one from the SL but not everything would work fine (which is what most who tried experienced). Now they can do the SL aerial installation, but they have to swap the base and some of the inside equipment as well. And then you have an SL aerial with everything working. I did not ask about the price ... somehow I don't find the long one too annoying on a black car ...
And I'm soooo amazed by the car at this point ...
anyways ...

Someone has posted over on Torstens board that he has had the brabus Antenna install and that all is good!!!! (he paid 389 euros - 200 euros for the parts, rest i assume for fitting)

i get the impression that it wasnt simply a screw on replacement as he suggests his car was in the shop for 3 hours! my german is not so good so i could be wrong!
