Let's talk antennas

R170 (post facelift) has 2 antennas: One in the middle of the trunk lid, and another one on driver's side of the back fender.
First one seems to be the (redundant at 2016) phone antenna. And the second one is radio. (which is kind of redundant too).

Q1: Have anyone removed the phone antenna? How did you cover the hole? Does it worth dealing with? (in my old 320 it leaked, btw)

Q2: What are good replacement antennas for the radio one? The holder on mine is kind of broken, so I want to either repair it or replace with something like self retractable one. Any tips here?
