Updating a 2002 G500?

Hi All -

I could use some advice from some fellow G-Wagoneers.

I have a 2002 that I absolutely love. However, it's starting to show a little age here and there. I'd like to make a few updates.

Specifically, I'd like know if I can install an updated Gauge Cluster from a 2009 model without any great difficulty?

Secondly, I want to update my Nav system and instal a back up camera as well. I'd prefer to use OEM equipment to keep her looking original. Any suggestions/is this achievable?

Lastly, the original headlights are pretty weak. Any concerns with installing Bi-Xenon HID projector headlights?

Thanks everyone!

I can talk you through some of the stuff, it can be done but it is not going to be cheap, but definatley buy OEM parts to update the exterior as most aftermarket stuff (grilles, lights, tails) looks cheap and will eventually fall apart. As for the interior, anything is possible, check out MBenzNL, you will be paying big money for the amps, antennas, programming, removal of D2b system, MOST wiring, etc and will likely have to do alot of research youreslf, learn some german, or pay an expert who has done it before (not many have).
