OK... Help me out just a bit... whats an " FM Modulator" and what are you trying to do with it ? the link to the pair of adaptors look to be for hooking a FAKRA connectored .... something... ( thats the connector on the right side of the link, 1 male, 1 female ) to something else with standard US style aerial connections ( on the left side, again 1 male and 1 female )
on a 2005 ( aka "facelift" w220 ) i THINK the AM/FM/WB antenna connections are not to the radio, but to an Audio Gateway Device located on the left side ( same side of the trunk as your CD magazine and NAV DVD reader ) of the trunk. the Audio Gateway actually does all the tuning and band switching. Data ( sound, tuning commands, etc ) are passed over Fiber Optic Ring to the COMAND head unit in the cab of the car.
I would think, that to tap into any sort of antenna input, it would have to be in the trunk, prior to the Audio Gateway. I cannot stress enough, that to put extemporaneous inputs into the system is fraught with peril that could punch a bus sized hole in your wallet.
