    I'm having a Bluetooth fitted on Monday, just received the kit and am shocked at the amount of wires, obviously they need to be connected from the boot area as i have Comand so i am thinking there must be a load of trims that need to be removed:crazy: so do i...

    A) Stay with the fitter and scrutinize he's work whilst been friendly.
    B) Go indoors and bite my nails?

    wouldn't recommend A)

    Last time I did that you can't help but notice the mistakes they make and also someone stading on top of them makes them nervous.

    If you do B) and he does make a slight mistake, chances arer you are not going to notice it is there.

    Did you also get the Merc wiring loom as well as the standard one? I know what you mean about all the wires, but actually there are only two connectors I think.

    I'd fit it myself to ensure it was done properly.

    You want to be able to see it without taking your eyes off the road, mine is on the dash against the windscreen to the right of the steering wheel. can get a photo if you like.
    It has a night mode which does not distract you in the dark so that is not a problem.
