Hi all,

just thought id post for others that may be interested in getting new head unit.
My w202 came with an aftermarket unit but was too silver and lots of flashing lights for my liking, also the sound was decent but on full was not too loud so i thought id upgrade unit and door speakers
Bought set of panasonics for doors and this head unit (iegeek k301) as looked more simple/refined and suiting classic interior

was waiting on adaptors to fit speakers and just put in new unit (fits perfect with cage) ..and OMG instant better sound with stock speakers and the top volume is now massive and rocks the car....must be the built in amp? and looks great

doubt i will use the speakers now either return or keep in case failure

A lot has changed since the 202 was launched, and the amps are much better in the head units - We tend to like Alpine units, not blingy (and we can offer 2 year warranty when we supply and fit), but also for the classic Mercedes we often go with the Blaupunkt Bremen (with DAB)- a lot of the other units, as you note, are rather flashy !
But all rather more costly than that Amazon unit !!!
