FS: ML320 VES- Vehicle Entertainment System VHS

Hey Everyone,

I bought this kit new from ebay and never got around to installing it in my 1998 ML 320. It fits other M-Class Mercedes W163 from 1998 to 2005 but you should double check before buying. The best part about this kit is that the audio plays through the stereo speakers throughout the vehicle. This system comes with the VHS player (not DVD), but the auxillary ports would allow you plug a DVD through the system as well. Mercedes did make a dvd player that plugs into the harness, however these are really rare and thus expensive. It makes more sense to plug a dvd player in through the AUX (rca) components. Another options would be to find the pin layout and attach an aftermarket DVD player (like blaupunkt) and connect to VES DVD harness. This would be a great DIY project. I even printed out the the pdf’s on the exact installation instructions. I also researched a lot on this website in regards to VES installs.

Here’s another website that shows the install too: home.earthlink.net/~phdwebsite/ves.htm

It comes with:
Central Interface Module
FM Modulator (direct plug into back of radio)
Video Monitor (retracts from headliner ceiling)
Video Cassette Player
Auxillary Interface Module (Video , L + R audio) for other devices like DVD.
Video/DVD player wiring harness
Wiring harness for Video Monitor
Instructions to install step by step- printed from pdf files

I don’t think you’d want the dealership installing this because they would charge you an arm and a leg, unless you have the money for that. Plus if you install it yourself you’ll appreciate your ML more.

I’m selling this for $250. This is less than what I purchased it on ebay for. My loss is your gain. Email/PM me with any offers. If you have any questions or would like other detailed photos, let me know as well.

Thanks,
Rob

I listed this on ebay since I haven't gotten any responses here.

It's listed with a buy it now price of $250.00

I'd be willing to sell for $200 including shipping for Benzworld users.

Let me know,

Thanks,
Rob
