Looking into new radio

Good morning all! Was looking into putting a new HD radio into my CLK 430. The present one is a stock MB with only the very outdated cassete player. I find it strange that a 2001 MB has a cassette player. I want to get one that will play my Ipod and is satellite ready and blue tooth compatable. I have seen a few. My question is does anyone know if I will be able to use the steering wheel control functions with the new radio? if so which brand/models should I look into? I saw that Best Buy had a few nice Alpines on sale. Thanks in advance

It will have to be compatible with your car's fiber optic system.

Why not just use Crutchfield's "configurator" to see what works?
