I thought WOW...what is this now!!!:wallbash::wallbash::wallbash: Spoke with my friend, - done my reaserch,- its A fiber optic cable!!!!!:wallbash::wallbash:

    Guys what do I do??? please ....there should be some sort of ISO adapter for it or something.... I dont mind paying £1 000 000 for it!!!! There should be another way of going around them??


    So my car is e240 (w211) 2002 (Plate52)elegance, fitted with Audio 20 head unit +6 cd changer.

    If you have the early W211 with audio-20 that only has a small fibre connector and power with no quadlock, then all your speaker wiring is in the boot at the AGW. You will need this loom below to convert it to quadlock. whereupon you can then install your aftermarket system;

    LOL, you do your research BEFORE you spend a load of money and rip a car apart not afterwards :)
