CLK200
I'm definitely doing a double din install soon. The only thing that is missing to make the install perfect is a burl, birds eye or carbon fibre fitment kit to make it one with the rest of the dash. There are several companies producing wood trim to our cars, someone should try to convince them that they need to start producing a wood/carbon fiber double din fitment kit. There should be a good market for this. They produce all sort of useless wood trim, why not make something that is usefull and that people actually would want buy.

2000 CLK 320 Drop Top
I plan on installing my Eclipse AVN5500 this weekend. I'm pretty good with installations. I'm no professional, but I've done quite a few of them! This will be my first time installing a HU on a benz. I have a wiring harness and anteanna adaptor. Is there anything special that I should know before I do this? Also I think my unit has the connection for the steering wheel controls. Has anyone hooked theirs up to the steering wheel controls?

Sweet, I've been thinking about the 8019 for my C230k.

I was told by CarToys these double din systems are not compatible with the MB Bose and that all my speakers would have to be switched out on my 2000 CLK 430. Also that none of my steering wheel controls would work. I was looking at the Kenwood system but he said all of them would nuke the Bose speakers. Opinions?

What kind of car is yours? Just went to Earmark audio and they told me the same thing Cartoys did - factory system is fiber optic and there is nothing that will work with it without replacing everything. I like the factory system, would just like newer navigation system and a DVD player for the kiddos...

I believe the way it's connected is:

Head Unit -> Pre-Amp-Out -> Bose Amp...

that's for the audio - the head unit shouldnt be directly connected to the speakers (not with fiber optic connections either)

please correct me if im wrong

Rgds,
