I know I'm old school, but I prefer CDs to all the new fangled stuff. I've already replaced the changer in my 1999 500SL and it seems to work so far (ebay used). I've searched the forums and the web and would like to know if this radio I found on ebay, Original Mercedes audio 10 CD-R Alpine Becker mf2910 CD Car Stereo Tuner Radio 13, from Germany would work in a my US SL500.
Looks like it might, but maybe someone who is an expert on these cars could say for sure. The pictures are copyrighted, so I can't post them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't know whether it will work with your car; the Audio 10 units I am familiar with function with fiber optic systems, but some may have copper wire outputs. I doubt your car uses fiber optics for its audio. Here is one source of pinout diagrams for vrious Mercedes audio units; you will have to scroll to the Audio 10.

be aware that the euro products may have (thus, require remapping) frequency spacing
not compliant with US FCC spacing. I'm away from my notes so I can't provide more info
i.e. degree of difficulty on the reprogramming. I have a D2b-fiber version of the Audio10
