Did I read on this forum that its possible to replace the awful 'coathanger' aerial (that really cheapens the car) with the stubby one off the SL (without affecting reception ?)

THanks - I found the previous posts afterall and you are right, no one seems to have made it work. I will lay money at any odds that the next generation model has a stubby aerial !! Its all a marketing ploy !!

As long as we can fit a new generation stubby aerial to our SLKs that will be fine with me

Obviously a matter of taste here - I do not mind the standard aerial at all.

I can not see me replacing it unless it gets stolen or broken.

I am not sure I really notice it anymore either except when cleaning the car - convinced it will stab me in the eye one day.

I quite agree and think it is suited to the car. I think the stubby aerials, particularly those on the trunk, look like a dog or a very large bird pooped on your car.[:I]

Could you imagine going to the A&E/ER and trying to explain how you stabbed your eye - whilst washing your car!?!?!??! [:D]
