why did mercedes run the fiber optic cables on the e320's, 430's and e55's on the passenger rear side but on the E300 Diesels they ran the cables on the Drivers Side? Also why is there what looks like a parallel port cable,and a disconnected antenna cable? are these for the cellular phone? I know on my r129 SL that the CD Changer connects to the stereo system via a similar parallel type cable. ANy ideas?

thanks

I have a '00 E430 Sport and just installed a cd changer last week. My cd changer cables (fiber and power) are run to the drivers side of the trunk. I also saw the other cables your talking about and think that you are right, they should be for a cellular connection.

If I remember correctly, the parallel type cable is for the Voice Control Module and the smaller connector is for the phone PSE.
