    Does anyone know what sizes the speakers are in the C202?
    I want to replace them all with better ones when I upgrade the head unit..

    You could put up to 6.5" at the front door and up to 5" for the back door. The rear could hold 6.5"

    Hope this helps.

    Greg,

    I've done this upgrade on mine, using 16.5cm/6.5"(with an adaptor) in the front and 10cm in the back doors. I'm in the process of upgrading the rears to 13cm/5" by using a similar adaptor.

    The adaptors are made by Autoleads and are listed at:

    http://www.soundontop.co.uk/

    I was told you can fit tweeters in the dash etc, but I'm reluctant to start stripping things down so I've just fitted some co-axials in the factory locations. As the estate doesn't have a rear shelf it may be different for yours.

    Didn't I see a pic of Koolvins car (maybe on the MBOA forum)with some stunning install in the boot?

    I'll show you on thurs  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    What I'd really like is the front door adapters, rear door adapters and the dash tweeter replacements. &nbsp;Which do you have left Vinay? &nbsp;I was thinking that you could &quot;source&quot; me those things, then buy the ferry tickets for us, meanwhile I could get a bootload of cash changed into Euro for the trip to NL/DE and pay you back <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    #### I need some ICE in my car and this would be a good first step...

    Koolvin,

    Those are the adaptors I've fitted - did you have to take a hacksaw to them to get them to fit flush on the door frame or have I done something monumentaly stupid?

    Have you bought the rear adaptors - SAK-2003?

    No hacksaw needed - no rear door adaptors as there is no point in having them.
