I have always wanted one and finally found a single owner with some miles but great shape. I leaks anywhere. Originally an Arizona car.
couple of questions that I have?

nav- states not installed. The only slot I have behind screen is cassette. I do have a multi cd cartridge in rear. Can I get nav for this ML with what I have? Or just swap stereo for newer? Also Bose system.
Also missing a piece from rear bumper. Can anyone tell me what it is? See pics.
Also owner couldn’t find cars handbook. eBay?

thanks for the reply’s

+2 on changing the oem HU.
You probably have FO (fiber optic) Bose. You'll need to by-pass the proprietary FO amp system, etc OR do the loop-da-loop on the FO cable when swapping.

ML55amg wheels? maybe?
Find yourself some ML55 amg 18" wheels and keep those for winter shoes.

Bose amp has to be gutted (literally) - that's what I did in my situation and re-purposed the shell and it's oem connectors.
Goto the w163 sticky's - lots of great info in there

meh, color match the code or sample, with a suicide can (you can buy custom matches, I do, when needed - doesn't cost that much more) or add a trailer hitch back there with a step bar.
I hate drivers who can't parallel park. If they want to damage there bumpers.... :)
