W220 Amplifier

I have a 2001 Mercedes S500, and just recently I made the mistake of storing a 5-gallon bottle of water in the back. It spilled and flooded the trunk, frying the Amplifer. I took it to Mercedes, and they want to charge me $800 for a new amplifier. They said if I found a used one, I could use it instead, but that it had to be an S-Class amplifier from the year 2000 or newer. I found an amplifier for a W220 Mercedes for only $200, and want to know if it would be compatible. I know that W220 is an S-Class, but is it necissarily 2000 or newer?

RE: W220 Amplifier

The best resource I know of for this would be http://www.mbdoctor.com/.
I have plugged them twice today[:D]
Not affiliated with them, but they have always impressed me. They just might have the amp you need. They are good guys and would probably be able to give you a solid answer about the amp from the 220.
My guess is that it would work. Can you have the seller get the part# so can compare it to yours?
