Whats the car please? I very much doubt you will need to do a full rewire.

Not going to be easy but the speaker wires can be found from the AGW. Just that it should be a 4-channel plus centre fill amp, I assume the new unit would be a four channel device? Difficult to say if it would be simpler to feed all four channels from the HU to the back or try to reach door speakers individually and directly from the head unit.

The AGW receives audio over the fibre and I doubt you can use AGW with the new head unit at all.

Playing a bit might make it possible to use the rear antenna but you would still need to feed the wire to the front as it now goes to the AGW. In any case you would lose the diversity reception feature.

Oh yes, from the Audio 20 CC and AGW I thought it was an early W211 E-class. I guess pretty much the same as for a W211 even if it was another car.
