Hi, i am looking at changing the whole radio/cd/tv/phone system in a SL55 AMG?

The car currently has analog TV, a nokia business phone kit in the centre console.

The reason behind the change is that i am looking at having DVD, Sat Nav, iPod, Bluetooth Phone kit and DigiTV and a replacement unit is looking like the best option.

I have found a few units that i like the look of and that have the majority of features that i require. Its just the fitting side of things that i seem to have problems with. I cant find a facia adapter or any specs on the SL's standard system. I know previous cars i have worked on have had amplified systems on them and no doubt that this car does too. Are there amp integration leads available? Where can i get said parts from?

Answers on a post card!

Cheers

Your car will have the Bose amp coupled by fiber optic cables, so you may have to change that, also the loudspeaker impedance is around 1 ohm

Hi,
With what Malc has said regarding the Bose amp and the fibre optics in your car and how Command can be intergrated into other systems in your car i would talk to these people as they are considered to be the experts in the UK at this type of thing.

You may find that you can get everything you want and still retain the command system.
