Hi I have just got one of these aerials for my R171 and intend to do the mod before fitting. I've read through a lot of the threads and discussions on this but wondered if anyone had decided which was the optimum length/gauge and number of wires needed for the best result. Thanks :grin:

Yes Jeff, read that and several others which went on to say some members (I think Etyu was one) were experimenting with differing lengths and gauges of wire and whether one wire or two were needed. I just wondered if anyone had come to a definitive conclusion and I'd missed it. Thanks for taking the time to find the link as it may also help others as it's an old thread I believe.:grin:

The experts will jump in that have made that modification. When I had my 2005 slk 350, i just bought the $68 shorty from the dealer for the r170 and put it on.
