Lightbulb w211 new comand 2008/2009?

Does anybody know anything about this new comand?

I've heard some rumours that it fits perfectly when you have older audio 20 cd installed! just plug and play, because it has internal AWG like audio 20cd and plugs are same also.

I have not seen anyone having retrofitted the new NTG2.5 device but you are right that the wiring is at least pretty much the same as for the Audio 20 CD and this unit should fit better than for the others that use AGW.

You could have a look at the wiring diagrams and compare the connector pin assignments but it is very likely that all match.

Just pay your dealer $5-7K for the parts!

are you sure? when you buy new car, then comand (w/o navi) option costs about 2k! I think that internal hard drive, memory card slot, mp3 and aux would be pretty cool to have...

does anybody know this new comand part number?

I guess the W211 part number is A2118706694. I have not seen this on parts price lists yet. 3046 Euros as a factory option, in Germany.

€3k is really overkill, in Estonia we have:
526 - comand, radio, mp3, cd, w/o navi - €1716
527 - comand APS, dvd navi, mp3, cd, radio - €2982

I think this code 527 is the old comand NTG2?

Hah! When you buy a new ML or GL, the trailer hitch is a $550 option. The parts alone are $1K at the parts counter and it costs another $1K for dealer installation.

I bet my $5-7K is a pretty accurate guestimate.

I was assuming the 526 being the old Comand (no APS), is the NTG2.5 available without navigation? The NTG 2.5 Comand APS anyway comes with the same option code 527 as the old Comand APS did.

The German price for the option is not far from $5k. This option price isn't covering the Comand HU because the Audio 20 CD HU is included in the standard price and you don't get both devices at the option price tag. Add the value of the Audio 20 CD HU and $5k is certainly exceeded without parts price multipliers taken into account.

On the other hand, one can find from eBay the same device but for other car models at less than 3k€.
