New (Used) radio for slk32

I always wanted a better head unit and saw this one on ebay and thought it would be a nice replacement for the stock one. I value the opinions from my fellow slk owners. Please let me know if you think this would be ok.

Seems a little gimmicky to me. Are you really going to sit in your car in park and watch vids on a 5 inch screen? If you have the bose system all you can use are r/l outputs from the preamp section. They have to be 4 volt output to integrate with the bose system. You won't be able to use the rest of the pre-amp outs. Now if you were going to completely re-wire the audio system and add real subs and seperate power amps, a head unit like the one you found would be pretty nice.

The only feature I will probably never use is watching a video. The reason I got it was all the great reviews it received and it does so much for a head unit. If it turns out that I don't care for it I will go back to the stock radio.
