Hi Benzworld!

My name is Rich, and I live in Santa Clara, CA. I just purchased my first Mercedes Benz, a 1990 SL500 Sport version with 53K original miles. I bought it, appropriately, on Valentines Day this year and just love this car...

I am looking to put some modern technology into the car, such as direct input IPod and Satellite Radio. I'd like to integrate it in such a fashion that the original radio module would allow the IPod input in (not using RF thru antenna), so I've got my work cut out for me, and am hoping some members may have insights. I would like to investigate a possible plan to tap into the cassette input, (not using the cassette tape method with wires sticking out) adding a double input jack for IPod/Sat somehow, and then coming up with a clean mounting method that allows easy IPod/Sat removal for security.

Another more pressing issue is that the convertible top rear window plastic has ripped at the stitching for about 2-3 inches on one of the sides, and I'm looking for a possible plastic window replacement w/o having to replace the whole top, and will be searching the forum for any post on a local source who can help on this issue.

I'm looking forward to digging into any posts on these and other possible upgrades.

Welcome to the forums Rich
have a look into the audio/telematics area about your ipod question, and your vehicles specific area about your rear window
