Why would you need this shark fin on your boot in the 1st place? I thought all SLKs come standard with GPS antenna mounted in the middle of the trunk?!
I can't help with connectors... Don't know too much about electric engineering. May be others will jump in?!

His profile says 2001 SLK230 which to me means it's post- facelift. But yes, there might be some differences by countries. I remember I've seen one that didn't have a radio whip or shorty antenna on the rear fender. I think it used that GPS mount for radio too. Not sure though but that was my thought.

Hi well the Mercedes antenna is in the rear bumper and is rubbish .... Only the slk32 amg has the gps in uk .. I know us have antenna on rear wing which in my opinion looks nasty so putting it in bumper for uk is nice looking but does not work very well so the plain is to put shark fin on boot which will look good like a slk32amg and work ..the cable I need is like the one you have to use to change the radio to aftermarket but with a female din to male mercedes antenna so plz hellllllp

Maybe you'll find something useful here:

I think they have a good choice! Do you see the connector you need?
Or the Crutchfield has a good selection too:

Or SonicElectornix is also a good source:

I think I would like one of these for just the look. I think they are good looking better the the little box that's on there now and it has no function. I thought it was for the car phone they use to have.
