Answered in your other thread. Basically you have wires run for both, but lack the actual hardware.

Hmm, OK, so should be as simple as precuring the hardware and plugging it in?

Thanks again.

Think Ill look around on Ebay and Craigslist and try to get an idea of whats available.

Thanks again. . .

I'm not sure what preinstallation means, but I know that you have to go online to the Sirius website to purchase a subscription. You will be asked your radio number when setting up online.

So it's almost that simple - you need mounting hardware as well, and that rarely shows up on eBay - I've been lucky once with both.

You also will need your dealer to code the new bits into your car with DAS, but in general it should be less than an hour's work...

SDARS module you want is the GEN2 version, and it's not platform specific - you can use on from any MB.

NAVI is about the same, but needs to be from (off the top of my head) an E or SLK.
