Its a very early one so unlikely to be a CANBUS one.Can anyone tell me if this comand unit is a CAN BUS model, and would it be compatible to retrofit in a facelift W210?
A210 820 36 89
Some 48 89 units are canbus some aren't. The way to tell is if the volume rises and falls with the steering wheel buttons when its all connected up then yes its canbus.Have ordered a A210 820 56 89.
I test fitted a A210 820 48 89 in the meanwhile but is questionable if the 48 89 is can bus or not. Some threads on here indicate it`s not and others say it is.
Would the steering wheel and cluster controls operate if it were non can bus?
I've been thinking of getting command and assume i have CANBUS but my cars pre-facelift - what would be the best unit that would suit my car MY99?Its a very early one so unlikely to be a CANBUS one.
You should get one of the following two part numbers;
A210 820 54 89
A210 820 56 89
Forget anything else. These two are the last of the A210 units and the most reliable of them also.
For your car (pre facelift without steering wheel controls) the best unit and the most easily installed is the ML one A163 820 36 89I've been thinking of getting command and assume i have CANBUS but my cars pre-facelift - what would be the best unit that would suit my car MY99?
Also, any ideas on total cost of parts and someone in central scotland that would install?

Send a PM to AlexSpeedybiker, he installs in Scotland.
I have been given a Command 2.0 part number A210 820 54 89 by my father in law. I have an E280T. Could any one recommend anyone in the North Wales\ Chester area who could fit it. I presume that I will need a new facia and possibly a bracket for it to fit into the console area, will I need anything else? Do you have to buy the bits direct from Mercedes or are they made elsewhere?
I don't understand anything about canbus or whatever but my steering wheel etc has all the bits that operate the computer etc. It is the Audio 10 with a cd changer in the boot.
Any help gratefully received
