Datacard

Purchased a used SLK350 Designo and was curious if someone could pull datacard for me? VIN = wdbwk56f85f048216

Trying to learn alittle more, need to look at adding Nav and XM somehow, but not educated enough at this point on where to look for best prices.

Also debating the OEM windscreen but rumor has it, it is problematic on the Designo due to Leather on rollbars?

Any help would be appreciated,

Hear the same thing on the windscreen, but I've seen them fitted before. No personal experience. Welcome to the Forum!

You probably need to set up a subscription w/ sirius. Mine came w/ 6 months free and then had to renew and pay.

Hey Noworiz - you have "531 SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO FOR USA PREINSTALLATION" - not the complete system "536 "SIRIUS" SATELLITE RADIO COMPLETE SYSTEM". Basically this means you could easily add a SDARS kit to your car.

Thanks for the clarification John. So does this mean there is no Sat. "bump/lump" on the trunk/boot lid?

Yeah, basically means only that fiber, power, and antenna lines are all present in the left rear floor panel. So you need receiver, mounting bracket, cover, antenna, and some other miscellaneous bits of mounting hardware. I picked up a radio and got the mounting kit from Ken (SLKStore) on the last install I did..

Hmmm, I think there is more to it than that, But not sure. When I press the SAT button it says No Satelite radio. So I couldnt get the the radio Number to set it up if I wanted to. I hade XM before and it would get preveiw stations at least, before I activated it.

And the good thing is you can put the antenna under the grille on the hood, and not as a 'wart' on the trunk cover

(btw, welcome from NE England!!).

That's what I was thinking, now if you take the wart off you have a hole to fill. At least now the are body color, some of the earlier ones were black no matter the color of the car.

No John is right, your car is pre-wired, if you want the satellite radio even just to preview it you have hardware you need to buy.

If you do a search for phone pre-wire you will see threads by folks who are in the same situation as you just with the car phone not the radio .
