Ah, one of the many little detailed things I like about my 2000 SLK, is the antenna being hidden in the bumper.
( apolgies for any hint of smugness )
It works better than my last car that had a roof mount whip antenna.
So why do some SLK markets have the external type?
Just like the trivia question, which car was the last to have pop-up headlights ( Corvette and Lotus Esprit I think), one day someone will ask, “what was the last car to have a power antenna? And which to have those annoying fixed whip antennas?” And you’ll be explaing to grandkids why they exist at all, since mobile phones don’t have things that stick out and get in the way,,,,,,,,, (anymore!)
