Hi all,
Finally getting frustrated enough with multiple problems with the antenna on my 86 300E - I'd like to change it to a fixed aftermarket antenna. Can anyone comment on the whether these antennas work as well as or perhaps better than the stock ones re: reception (I'm picturing a stubby little plastic covered number for replacement). Is an adapter needed? How about brands?
Thanks for any advice!
Nick

The small antennas work as well as the big ones. The usually have a little amplifier built in their bottom. For the connection, no needs to worry as all has the same.
Bosch makes some excellent tiny antennas but not very cheap...

I bought a replacement for my 250C, I think I got it from crutchfield. 10 years ago. Got the drain tube which I run out the bottom of the car in the front fender.

Works great, has never hung up, Had an adaptor set for various mountings, I'm satisfied.
1/2 price of what I would have paid to fix the original.
