My logic is that I would replace the existing poor radio aerial with a proper one and maybe boost the GPS reception without having to do any hole drilling and without too much aggravation in threading cables inside the roof lining.

Am I in with a chance or is my logic flawed ?
Any mod that does away with the existing aerial will be wothwhile, it is a characteristic downfall of the Lag II that (in my 02 model) the aerial was in the rear OS quarterlight and was cr*p. Getting at the wiring may pose a problem but have a go, you can only improve things.
