Hello All, this is my first Mercedes...

Hello All,

I just got my hands on a used E350 (06). I was looking for a commuter sedan and had my eye on the usual…. Acura tl, Infinity GS, but during my research I continuously came across positive reviews on the E class Mercedes. I test drove a number of the other sedans and have to say that my first test drive in an E class made it obvious which car was for me. I purchase the used sedan with just around 40k mile and for an even 20k. It’s a base model with few options. I have just too purchased the Kenwood DNX6140 GPS navigation systems with Iphone / Ipod cable kit and the steering wheel adapter kit which allow me to keep the functionality of the buttons on the steering wheel.
The real reason I went this route was the cost of original options. Since my E350 was equip. with Command center I thought this was the way to go…. wrong..

Well for 1500 bucks I got all the options (including back-up camera, XM, Ipod/Iphone integration, plus blue tooth…). All with pro-installation for 210 bucks 3 hrs’s at 70 bucks (I got a break on the labor abit). All this is to be installed in the days ahead. I’ll post the results and my reviews after.
Anyone want to buy a perfectly good command center unit?

I’m now looking at adding a K&N and any other recommend simple add ons.
Any recommendations?

Thanks and great website too!!
