    Hi guys,

    A quick question if i may. So i have an 04 plate E220 which has a standard radio/CD player installed (picture http://galleryplus.ebayimg.com/ws/web/221280779267_1_0_1/1000x1000.jpg )

    Now, i saw on a newer 07 model (still W211), they have upgraded the radio/CD player and i was wondering whether this is compatible with my model at all or if it is compatible, would i need some adaptors etc to make it work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes it is possible to upgrade or change the Audio unit. All the parts to do it either with Mercedes parts or aftermarket are available. What are you thinking of changing it to?

    Hi Alfie,

    Im looking to upgrade to anything outrageous, i still want to keep it as "standard" as possible. I still want the MB original head unit, but want to upgrade it from the mono colour to the multi colour display unit that is available facelift model of the W211. Well its either that or install a multi CD player. But wanted to move with the times by at least having a phono jack.

    Do you know what additional accessories i would need to upgrade the head unit?
