SLK (R171) and ipod

Hi all

I have just completed the purchase of a brand new SLK200K for my wife- great service and deal from Mercedes Oxford by the way. We opted for a number of options (Benotoite Blue metallic, alpaca grey leather, air scarf, 17" 10 spoke alloys, heated seats) but not COMAND (you've got to draw the line somewhere...) however it seems that an ipod input is only available if COMAND is fitted. Does anyone know of a way around this as £1900 for the COMAND and £300 for the ipod kit is a pretty expensive solution....

Many thanks in advance

Don't worry mate will let you know tomorrow. I have fitted ipod integration kits to c class and e class which have only audio 20 head units in them. the slk class(171) has an audio gateway separate from the head unit. will find out all the options for you tomorrow at work.
The only case where the audio gateway is separate in the R171 is if you have COMAND installed. The Audio 20 has it integrated. See page 10 of
