Having seen block try this and be successful, I am even more inspired to ry this, however, going from Block's experience, I would want to map out the pin moves so that it is really clear before I start as the car is used as a daily driver and could not be off the road for days on end.

The issue at the moment, is that I saw another 1999 s320 owner with a standard radio cassette (as I have) had completed a transition from the standard radio cassette to a Comand 2.5 and then more recently to a Comand 2.0. However, asking around, I keep getting told that moving from a 1999 s320 without Comand to installing a Comand 2.5 or 2.0 would not be possible. Can anyone help inform me as to whether this is possible or not?

I have posted photos of my radio cassette unit including existing wiring on Page 5 & 6 of this post:
http://www.benzworld.org/forums/audi...d-2-5-a-5.html

Is someone able to let me know which connectors on my unit are which? I have 3 block connectors:

1. Top connector with 3 cables coloured Green (top far left pin - assume it is pin 01), White (bottom far left pin - assume it is pin 06 and White bottom and second from far left - assume it is pin 07)
2. Middle connector - speaker cables
3. Bottom connector - Power, audio mute, ignition, etc.

And, whether these could be wired easily to accomodate a new Comand 2.0 unit, or is it just too much of a headache to complete? I am not worried about TV or sat nav - though if they were easy to have working that would clearly be great. My main interest is in radio, CD and having a clear display and modern unit.

If anyone is interested in completing a wiring diagram of my current connectors and the mapping to the new connectors with pin shifts and additional connectors, I am sure that members would be more than happy to pay for a copy of this as it would make understanding the job so much easier and ensure that people are not asking the same questions over and over.

I want to consider this properly as I would need to cut the supporting bar for the old radio cassette unit which makes the process non-reversible.

Any help would be really appreciated before I abandon this altogether.

Cheers.

Guess that I will be giving up on this as no-one has been able to help. Ta to those who have responded to date.

Anyone else tempted to try on a car with a radio cassette system (i.e. no Comand) let me know. If anyone wants a Comand 2.0 let me know.

Cheers

Just wanted to share this great upgrade I did my self...Everything working.

So my next step I was thinking about is:

The W203 NTG1 comand with DVD has the exact same buttons on the front panel as the W220 but dont use MOST so I was thinking, would it not be possible to buy a W220 unit and a W203 unit and just swop the inside from the W203 unit to the W220 unit and there you have a DVD version in your old W220...??? What you think about that?


Hello Chris, I want to replace my old comand 2.5 on my S-Class W220 (year 1999) with new comand 2.0 widescreen. Which parts do I need? What about speed signal? Please let me know. Thanks
