On Ebay? After everyone on this forum worked hard to do the retrofit and Andrew in getting the parts from Germany, now someone is trying to profit from all of our work. Amazing!!!!!
That is my auction. First off, I am the 1 to originally do this retrofit and figure out if it could be done! I spent way more on extra parts trying to figure out what worked and what didn't so you and everyone else who has or will do this retrofit won't have to! I will never recover that money, so profit is far far from reality!.
Secondly, BW asked me to do a publication of this retrofit which I did and anyone can get the retrofit instructions for free for the past 2 years! It's right on the BW homepage!
Third, as mentioned in other posts any active member of BW who wants the more detailed retrofit PDF file gets them for free also! Which I have done many times already.
Forth, the ebay auction is for people who have 98 and 99 ML's that don't frequent BW and don't even know this can be done. This helps out other people outside of BW and also gives me back a few and I mean few dollars towards my initial investment loss.
I hope this clears things up.

Thanks for clearing that up...

Obviously since you're the original author, you have every right to do as such [:)]

Benza,
I'm doing the Navigation upgrade on my 1999. How do I get a copy of the more detailed instructions you are selling. Also I have the MCS, dvd, and gerate adapter could you tell me where to get the rest of the parts. Thanks.

I got the german canbus vss wiring from a friend of mine in Munich. Gave him the part numbers and he sent it over by parcel post.

I have made the appt to get rims on April 15th - I figured the snow season will be over then. I am determined to get one more winter season out of my current wheels/rims...

Please try e-mailing me again at drew(@)benzworld.org. Remove the () surrounding the "@" sign though.

Yes they are certainly still available.

Thanks! [:)]

Man I got hammered I bid on a MCS/Navigation on ebay and didnt win the bid. A day later I got an email saying I have a second chance to win because the buyer didnt pay. All the emails were from ebay (it seems) saying it is covered by them all the right crap looked real safe with names and all. Well I sent this guy the money and bam havent heard from him looks like I was scammed. I'm reporting it as an internet fraud case seems ebay is doing nothing for me not being covered since they say it was outside of ebay but the emails had all ebay address on them. I have been doing ebay for a couple of years so I'm not new at this but this is the first time I got screwed. I'm still looking for a navigation unit just out alot of money.[:(]
