I'm going to retrofit Comand into my 54 reg C220 CDI & I've been looking on Ebay. Nearly all of them on there for my car are from Eastern Europe, has anybody bought one & had any problems??

Also can anybody please tell me if the following part number will be ok for my car A203 870 71 89 Harman/Becker BE 6096

Thanks in advance.

Liam.

Care needs to be taken over this,,that number does not fit into my charts though a VIN number would be needed for a real search

I heard tell that many of these units from eastern europe are stolen or not working.

But fear not for I believe that we have a forum member who installs them. A little more expensive no doubt, but new kit and working.

Bought two units from Lithuania.
They were just like new, and I checked if they were reported stolen with MB, they weren't!

There are a lot of Benz's exported to Eastern European countries and Russia. But there were no proper navigation maps available for those countries, so they ripped the Command and APS30 units out and sold them on Ebay!

I dont know why poor old Lithuania gets a bad name. The UK has plenty of thieving robbing barstewards. Glasgow is the murder capital of Europe, and I would not even get out of my car in some towns in England :lol:

We had some guests visiting our county from Lithuania last year. The ladies were absolutely gorgeous, and pure class !! :Oops::lol::Oops:

Slightly off topic Malcolm, but I am well impressed with the MP40 player ;)
