    You might want to tell people what year it is and what stereo it has in it. Is it Audio 20, Audio 50, Command?

    2009 has NTG4. If you have COMAND (satnav) you can buy an aftermarket integrated kit to go in - the in2digi D-MB-1 with a front windscreen antenna (very discrete) that fully integrates (i.e controlled as per your manual).

    The D-MB-2 has just been released for newer cars (NTG4.5), but within a couple of weeks should have software to use it on the NTG4 cars, so talk to Comand Online and they can tell you what works
    The advantage of D-MB-2 is it uses the same antenna feed voltage as Mercedes OEM tuner will do, so it can be made to drive the factory antennas so you don't even need a front windscreen antenna.

    They are reasonably simple to fit, but it does involve a permanent power feed and fibre optics and a bit of configuration work.

    Cheers

    Excellent bit of info thank you will look into both of them. I take it adding the oem setup is a mega expensive options?

    If you use all factory new parts in OEM locations etc you get to the nest part of about £1k on parts :-(
