2009 E Class radio retrofit

I am in process of acquiring a 2009 e 350 sport from a colleague. It has the "standard" radio; I would like to upgrade/retrofit to the "premium 1" package radio (satellite, HD radio, ipod interface, HK Logic 7, and navigation). I sense there is quite a bit more than just purchasing a new head unit.

1. Can such a retrofit be done by a MB dealer?
2. How much (approx.) will it cost? $1k, 2k, #3k, +++?
3. Will I be satisfied with the result, or should I just look for a car with the preimum 1 package?

I have searched the forums and cannot find a satisfactory answer. I would like to keep the car as factory original as possible, ie, no aftermarket units unless absolutely required.

Try a search the W211 forum (sedans sub-section) because this has probably been discussed. You might also find your answer on the Audio & Telematics forum in the Technical sub-section. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

If the car already has the Harmon Kardon speakers, the COMAND is a drop in replacement. Then you can add everything else easy. If it does not have the HK speakers, then it is a big job!
