Are you saying that I can replace the radio in my 2004 SL500 with a new radio with NAV & Bluetooth?

How much would it cost?

Do I have to replace all of the wiring?

I'm In Cincinnati, Ohio USA

To replace the radio you will have to buy installtion kit which is $100

You can use a proffesional shop to wire a radio in, you dont have to change any wiring you just have to add some

Do I have to take apart many things, such as carpet, panels, covers?

I have found a shop that will install this AVIC-Z3 radio for 2800.00

I can get the AVIC-Z3 on Ebay for 1100.00

How long did it take you to install it?

Double din

Hi it doesnt take alot to install if you use proffesional hep
What if I want to do it myself. I have installed car systems before just for myself, but I never delt with anything like a Benz with fiber optics.

Is it something the average person could do?

I do recommend professional installation on this car, I would not recommend doing it your self

I am talking to an installer in Cincinnati. He is saying that I can't install a new stereo in my 2004 SL 500 because of the fiber optics unless I install all of the wiring.
Also maybe it would cause "fault" codes

ok here how it works, fiber optics is only between stereo and amplifier, if you have also teleadi that's it, number one I can send you connector that closes fiberoptics loop but you probably dont need it, you will take out fiber optic connector from radio it will open loop with my connector you will close this loop again. secondly you will run wires from from your aftermarket stereo to amplifier in the trunk and connect aftermarket stereo to factory speakers. Another solution is to ad two small amplifiers one amplifier for factory speakers and another for factory sub woofers, best solution is to change all speakers, meaning front and back component and install a small amp, install aftermarket sub with an amp

As Navtool has explained the install will be mainly new. If you have experience and detailed wiring you could do yourself, however if you damage something then your responsible. From my experience an install like this would take an amateur about a day and for what a Pro would charge it is usually worth paying for. Fibre is only for system you are removing (you will also lose steering wheel controls and display on dash).

I am having the stereo installed by Best Buy in Cincinnati, ohio.
How can I get the things that close the fiber optics and any harnesses that I would need. Also, I want to know if Best Buy could contact you if they have any questions. Of course I would pay you for your time..
