2005 S430 4matic to replace my totaled E.

I was hit by a 17 yo who crossed the center line in the rain and totaled my 2004 w211 E320 (photo included). Recently replaced it with this S430. Was a new car trade in from an 86 year old millionaire's widow at the local MB dealer. One owner, garage kept, with 58k miles. (She wrote a check for the $115k 2015 model S Class to replace it). I had spoken with the salesman I know the week after the accident. I drove a similar E Class on their lot to the one that was totaled, but asked him about finding an S Class. He said they hardly ever get them in. Called me that evening to tell me this one had just been traded in.

My S430 recently purchased. More about it in my first post below.

Also, I'm going to be researching how to upgrade for an aux audio input. I'd appreciate any suggestions on which threads are most helpful. Fairly new here. Thanks!

Is that the other car's wheel in the crash pic? Yikes!
My dad lives in JC, TN, and I just moved to Knoxville from parts more southernly. We're constantly going on about the way people drive on or over the center line around NE Tenn! It's just crazy!
Since you've got the mojo, ask your buddy at the dealer to find me a facelift 215 CL Class!
Very nice S, by the way! Great that it's a color match to your former E.
Hard to see clearly, but my avatar pic is Carver's Gap on Roan Mtn.

sorry for the loss of your E class.

Small world!
And yes, that's the tire, rim, and full strut/suspension assembly from the Kia Optima that hit me. Her car landed about 100 feet up the road. The Mercedes held up quite well considering the hard hit. It happened on a busy two lane curvy road....a bad spot for crossing that center line.

I'll definitely tell him to keep a lookout for a nice CL!


And carver's gap is gorgeous. I did the hike to the top about two weeks ago and enjoyed the drive up in the new car. Absolutely the best views around.

Check out the Primer on Audio Systems in the Audio & Telematics forum at http://www.benzworld.org/forums/audio-telematics-forum/1696359-primer-audio-system-replacement-upgrade-enhancement.html

The ONLY W220 that had provisions for an AUX input was the '03. Other than that, you would need something like the Dension Gateway 500 or one of its variants, to get good audio quality (I don't have a high opinion of FM retransmitters). MObridge and Nav-TV also make good units that provide direct access to the fiber optics bus, for high quality audio.

The first link Luigi gave you dealt with the Dension unit, but there is much more available on the site. See http://www.benzworld.org/forums/audio-telematics-forum/1319829-gateway-500-most-not-ready-prime.html for starters, and some additional links in the Primer.
