I don't live in NY, so I can't answer that parts about the inspection..... but it sounds like you should saving for a new car. Throwing $2500 at a 5, soon to be 6 year old SLK, for a non-essential stereo system makes little to no sense whatsoever. You might be able to recoup like $100-200 upon resale of the $2500 'investment'. That $2500 could be put into a savings account and used as part of down payment on your new fully updated car. You can cross the 2010 system off your list also, because that would cost north of $5000....if it could even be done. What you could do right now is go buy a very nice cutting edge Garmin unit for $300 and use that to navigate. It is 10x better then an 05 command system, and you can use it in any car at any time, plus you can update it.
