99 CLK 320 Bipes, MP40 /CD changer issues

Hello all!

I've, amazingly enough, been having problems with my CD changer in my 1999 CLK 320. It worked fine for about a month after purchasing it, but now it skips so horribly, that it is unusable. Radio is a wasteland, and I need some music before I kill myself. I've done everything attempting to solve the problem...i.e. fiber optic "sling", cleaning lens, changing the positioning from horizontal to vertical, tried different burning software, different file types, commercially available CD's, dried ground up blue whale penis with whooping crane feathers...nothing worked. I'm done with that piece of shit. I want/need something inexpensive, and I stumbled upon the Bipes MP adapter, and it looks easy to install, and the price is right. Also, I can claim righteous original look. I've seen some positive posts about it. SOOOOOO..

Does the 99 CLK Bose speaker system have individual power amps for each individual speaker? The Bipes website claims you turn off the main unit when operating the adapter...I don't want to be driving the speakers with a crappy little MP3 player. Also, I'm kinda digging the MP40 Mercedes Player. Any and all thoughts on working around the standard crappy Cd changer with fiber optics is appreciated.
