thx 350insp.
i forgot to take pic of backup camera, but it's mounted at the center top right inside the trunk. didn't want to mount it outside. it's awesome to turn on the camera while driving on the freeway cuz u can see all the blind spots!

Make sure to get some goo gone before you do it. It took me about 30 mins to get all the gunk off.(You have to let goo gone sit for 5 mins each time you apply and I had to apply it twice). My best advice is to use fishing line or you will use a whole thing of floss.(I dont know if the longer the badge is on the harder it is to take off, I had my badge on for 4 1/4 years)

Inspiration Edition has poplar wood trim, stitched leather seats, 17" wheels, updated instrument cluster, etc....

It's almost like AMG package except for bumpers and engine.

Hello mj50, The headunit looks great . I had a question on how easy the install was because i 'm planning on buy the Eclpise avn5500 and the dimensions are the same, everywhere i go they say that the double-din units will not fit, so i guess there wrong unless you had to modify the headunit to make it work.
Thanks

i didn't DIY so can't promise u, but from looking at the installer do it, there wasn't any modifications done to fit. the only thing that didn't fit was the plastic trim around the HU which was slightly modified...

EFF YOU JACKIE
Don't forget, once you take the head unit out, your speaker, sub and amp are rendered useless. So if you're going to do it, you need to do it all.

My suggestion, have someone do it for you.

Looks good man
I like all the options that you have with this head unit, but I think that I've grown attached to my windshield mounted nuvi hahaha. I love the detail of the map and the overall feel. I know it isn't as clean and nice as your setup, and I have no backup camera, but I guess I can get by

Me too!

Can you please tell me where you bought the kit? How much will installation go for or how hard is it too DIY? Im only 16 with 2002 ML320, I don't really know how to install, maybe some step by step installation with pictures?

it's 35W for xenons...
the difference is bulb temperature (4k, 6k, 8k, etc...)
and no, it will not melt ur headlamps...

# of Inspiration Editions

i know when i was searching for the Inspiration Edition (CPO), i could only find 2 within 300mi radius... so i'm guessing there aren't that many Inspiration Editions out there... the question is, does anyone know how many of them are produced in US?
