Dear comrades,
Has any of us used one of these cool boxes?
I bought one and need some idea to correctly fix it to the trunk of my 600.Any experience?
Thanks a lot.
Ayhan

Comrades... Now that is a term that will stiffen the spine of most Americans, especially now, while going through the Trump phase of life (as Putin is hacking their email). I jest, I jest :)

How does that Cool kuhl box connect to the car? Is it 12V powered or does it require plumbing into the car's AC system? Is this unit the one that goes into the trunk and is accessed through the back seat fold down arm rest?

No, that's a plug in device that will hook into a 12v outlet installed in the trunk.

It is NOT the refrigerator unit available as an option on Euro cars only. There is NO pass-through hatch from the trunk to the back seat. The gas tank is right behind the seatback of the back seat, the one for all US cars is 100-liters in size. The modified gas tank for the optional refrigerator unit is only 80-liters.

WIS has installation instruction, but it requires drilling into the trunk floor, cutting insulation and carpet. I would not do it.

Thank you for sharing.I am not sure if that's the same cool box since mine came with a seatbelt straps with steel hooks at the eac ends and also a velcro strap.Reason l asked if we have any hidden connection points under the insulation somewhere in the trunk.Like normal eyes can not see.I don't want to drill holes here and there and destroy the trunk carpet but l beleive l will have to , since l don't want this thing banging here and there.I will inspect the car tomorrow for a suitable point . Let's see how it will turn out.Thank you very much.

Exactly Dear Stryker.
The plugging is easy since the battery and the secondary fuse box is in the trunk.I am more thinking about to fix it securely so it doesn't move.

No worries as there is no offense taken, at least not by me. :wink
