Genuine MB p/n for the R171 midi (facelifted) antenna is: A 171 820 20 75 and it probably costs less than you think (just £35.52 in the UK)! Here's a pic of it on my 2005 R171 SLK:

I bought both My midi Antenna and My chrome Gills on Ebay. Do a search under my names and posts and all the places I bought from and part numbers are in those threads.

Yes, mine is actually the aerial for the facelifted R171, and it has exactly the same fitting as the pre-facelift one.

The parts people will tell you that it's not the right part for your car. I had to argue with them and promise not to return it if it didn't fit before they would sell it to me. IT FIT !!!!

The 170 stubby one will reduce the signal you receive. There are posts on how to modify the stub to have the same signal as the longer ones. I bought one from the SLK STORE years ago when they did the modification before shipping. With the modification had the same signal as the old eye poker that came with the 2007.
