    I'm interested in the C350e and like a nice stereo, but one thing I'm keen to avoid is the higher rate of VED. The Burmester upgrade sounds like it could be rather wonderful, but takes it over the magic £40k level, and for half that kind of money (and I don't particularly want the other bits that come in the package) one could get a pretty decent third-party ICE system installed (I'm probably just thinking just amp and speakers rather than replacing the head unit).

    Has anyone here tried this? Do MB make it difficult?

    Try posting this in the electronics section Alex - that way Richard or Alfie from Comand (sponsors here) might be more likely to pick it up.

    Oh, I hadn't spotted that. Can a moderator get rid of this topic? I'll post in Electronics.... Sorry!

    I have a PP C350e with Burmester upgrade & had a c200 AMGLine without Burmester.

    I had big hopes for the Burmester but the sound although clearer was not that much better overall and defiantly not that much louder.
