Only up the M5 a little bit (Clevedon) is Avantgarde Mercedes specialist.
He has the full STAR system and updates the central MB database. Speak to Steve there.
I was there on Friday and there were two SLRs in there being worked on...
Here's the link
That's the only routing I've seen on a cab. Not sure about the power thing, but plausible as the AMG pipes would be designed and tuned for the correct back-pressure - whereas that... doesn't look like any consideration was taken for things like that! :D
over 10 years ago now - but 108mph on the A303 in Wiltshire.
2 week ban and £350 fine.
Was told afterwards that i should have pleaded not guilty as there were so many discrepancies in the police report :/
pretty sure that the HDMI standard doesn't include powering the device it's connected to...
there doesn't seem to be a big jump in specification between the new chromecast and the original one?
I would say that's correct - so the PERM+ (red wire on the head unit) should be in A4 and the IGN+ (Yellow wire) should be in A7 (I'm guessing the 208 doesn't have an IGN+ (Like the 209)? is it does, then you don't have to worry about the lighter.
I haven't fused my IGN+ from the cigarette...
Pretty sure that illumination is controlled by the CAN BUS (It is on the 209) But you can get CAN convertion "black boxes" that give you steering wheel controls too.
If your alpine unit has the illumination facility and you know the pin-out for its harness, then i can't see why you can't solder...
Audio 10? isn't that single DIN? I didn't know they did a single in the 209...
with an after-market HU, you'll lose the CD changer.. but it's no biggy as a new HU will do MP3's.
I doubt you have a separate amp, so all you need is a harness adaptor and a steering wheel converter thing.
Is it the reinhold engineering module? If it is, then yes, it's fairly simple. it goes in the driver's side sill. the CAN-BUS distribution socket thing is kind of fiddly to unlock, but other than that, pretty straight forward.
