My mother had a Mercury that had a record player in it...it took special records that had grooves from which the needle could not jump.

Here are some pics from our ex-Japan '04 350SLK

The COMMAND has DVD/CD and Minidisk installed. The DVD is used for the Nav DVD and the maps are 3D. They use the Kiwi format and have POI and trafic info via local FM transmitters. They are HTML based and work great on my PC. If anyone ever wants to know the location of a camp site in Japan, I'm your man.

We also have Linguatronic tho' again it's all in a quaint Japanese voice.

All very nice but completely useless in NZ. I almost feel like going to live in Japan and learning the lanuage just to take advantage of all the goodies.

But we don't care because it goes like a rocket and that's what counts.

By the way, with all this tech stuff, I guess that most MB drivers MUST be Trekies too.

Toot toot...

not a critic, but a suggestion..
get the amps off the speakers and install somewhere more solid because all that vibration over time will/can loosen up internals which you will have to re-weld or change out amps.

it also shows a cleaner setup, install some rubber shims behind the mounting holes as a way of easing some rattling.

Install a strong spring on that gas cap, it looks cool now, you'll get tired of it.
maybe make all speakers same brand, looks preetier + that way they are all same specs.. noticed you got two amps, that's smart, hope you got a at least 1 farad capacitor, just to help the alternator (even if the alternator is doing fine)

keep the rattle going.. I love to make noise too !
I'll post soon, b/c I'm making a custom enclosure.
peace out!
cool setups everyone!

Here's a link to my post in the W208 forum. It's a 99 CLK320. Specs: '05 ML CMS retrofit with nav drive and existing Bose system into a 1200W Sony Xplode amp and 2.0 farad Power Acoustik capacitor and twin 1300W Sony Xplode 12" subs. I built a 2" thick false bottom covered in grey flannel to house the electronics so I could retain my spare tire which is directly below. This is my daily driver.

The system sounds excellent!

My W208 sound

This is my 2nd install. If you have some input, I'd appreciate it.

Head Unit: Eclipse CD8445 (no, I don’t care about DVD)
Front Speakers: Diamond Audio S600s HEX Components
Rear Fill Speakers: Diamond Audio D361 Components (Connected via RAF on front crossover)
Front Amp: Diamond Audio D6600.4 (300w x 2 @ 4 Ohm)
Sub Amp: Diamond Audio D61000.1
Single 12” Sub: Diamond Audio D912D2
* Sub installed in box designed by Diamond. Debating on fiberglass - trade off SQ for space?
Wiring: Street Wires ZN650 (for both main signals and sub)
Cap: Street Wires PSC201
0 Gauge from Battery to Distribution – broken down to 4 Gauge to Amps
Replaced all speaker wire with Street Wires (don’t remember model – best avail)
Dynamat Extreme throughout trunk, rear qtr panels and roof. Still applying where needed

japan comand 2.0 unit in U.K Ml model 2000

I can show mine ...... once i get this done

Sorry being pathetic and sticking this into "show us yours"

Is there any one (MAN) on earth, who knows how to install this onto a ML320 2000 U.K model. I'll pay of course :)

Questions:

1 - Can the firmwar be update to euro model?
2 - What type of map CD does this take?


Many thanks...

Looks great! Where did you have the work done? I'm looking for a shop to do a really basic upgrade (with very nice components) for my '94 C280.

Thanks.
