My W212 small upgrade (DIY)

I would like to share my project in upgrading or changing of some parts on my W212.
I was reading a lot of forums to collect most of the information, and decide to put it in one thread.
I hope this will help people planning to do the same as me. I will start by posting the parts number, procedure now, and the DIY once done (I will do it next month when I will take my holiday).

1- Europe Center console:

I got some scratches on my centre console (I don't like the paint used by MB in the central console it gets scratches very easy).
I have ordered 2 parts:

- Centre console cover: A2046807607
- Centre console roller: A2046800107

2- Shift ****:
I have pack P1 on my car with black ash wood trim, but the **** is in metal leather. My transmission is Manual 6 speed but I like a **** in black ash for an automatic. The automatic **** does not feet the manual speed, for this reason I will need to modify the ****, which I will do next month.
This is the **** that I like to install: (I will post DIY later)

I will also probably change the EMBLEM: (to do that, you need to heat first the emblem with hairdryer, and then remove the Emblem as in the pictures)

3- Comfort box:
You can add the Comfort box in the rear of the trunk which I found useful for everyday use.
Part number: A2126800010

The install is very easy and fast, you need to plug first the rear part then close the 2 locks in the front.

4- Backup view camera:
Im expecting a difficult installation.
It seems that mercedes use the same Modulator and camera for couple of here models:
W212 E class / W207 E class coupe / W204 C class.
So i bought on ebay for my car W212 E class:
Trunk plastic handle bracket: A2127400993 (for W212, you need to make the hole yourself for the camera)
Modulator: A2128270006 (for W212)
Camera: A2078200897 (for W207)
Camera to Modulator wiring harness: A2044404808 (W204)
Modulator to comand wiring harness: A2044404908 (W204)

Mirror switch: A2129056100
Door clips (9 pieces): A0009918698
