Hi There !!!

Just got my new C230K (2003)almost fully loaded . Only the COMMAND is missing, the deal $$ was so perfect so I couldnt let it go even if I was requiring one w/Command. We also own a ML320 and I'm 100% command driven and that why I'd like to Know if some one could help with the following questions:

1) Is the command installable once you already bought the car ??

If so...then

A) Is the it 100% integrable with the actual features
- CD Changer
- Stering Wheel controls

B) Ist done by oficial MB service ??
C) How much doesit cost to buy it and have it installed and integrated with the existing equipement ?

4) There is any other alternative like Alpine or Pionner ?
Does someone here has one of those installed ? How much does it cost ?
Does Mercedes keep the terms of the guaranty in the case of an installation of a non-MB device (Alpine or Pionner ')

THANKS FOR THE ANSWERS

K.

Not by MB, but you can buy the unit and install it yourself. As someone said before, look for Steve from the Netherlands (MBenzNL), he comes to the U.S. every few months and does a bunch at a time. I believe he charges about $1,300 installed. [/b]

If so...then

A) Is the it 100% integrable with the actual features
- CD Changer yes
- Stering Wheel controls yes

B) Ist done by oficial MB service ?? NO
C) How much doesit cost to buy it and have it installed and integrated with the existing equipement ? About $1,300, prices vary by U.S. dollar value as they are imported

4) There is any other alternative like Alpine or Pionner ?
Alpine systems will integrate with the steering wheel controls, adapter extra
Does someone here has one of those installed ? How much does it cost ? Don't know but I expect a complete system installed would run over $2,000 not including amps/speakers
Does Mercedes keep the terms of the guaranty in the case of an installation of a non-MB device (Alpine or Pionner ') You void your stereo warranty and any electronics that are related or affect it, the rest of the warranty remains intact
