PAC-Audio will definitely work on the 01-04 models I have installed it on Charles Coupe.

SWI-CAN - Can Bus adapter

Plus specific radio adapter.

For Eclipse Radios..

For Alpine, Kenwood, Clarion, and JVC Radios

For Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, and Dual

All C-Class Steering Wheel Control Module. This modeule works 100% but may need to update the software so if buying online beware. I have the program and wires. I also have it installed on my 05 and Rolands C as well..

Adding Bass with Factory Radio

High to Low Converter:

This will use the speaker leads to give you the RCA plugs to add amp.. but will still need to run a remote wire (typically the accesory wire in the ignition switch ir tap to the blck/yellow at cigarette lighter)

High to Low Converter with remote out.

This will use the speaker leads to give you the RCA plugs to add amp and a remote out so no need to tap into cig. lighter or acc in switch

If your in the LA area pm me i can get better deals and can also install for a better price (mods feel free to delete this if its not appropriate) :thumbup:

Hope this helps.

Mods make sticky if you like if not it will be in the search...

Ill add more as I remember...
