Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome to SLKWorld.

Did you check inside the glove box to see if there's already an OEM AUX in on the front, outboard side?

Do you have a link to a picture that matches your head unit (used to be called "the radio") so we know what model it is? On my 2006 that has navigation there's a connector on the back of the head unit for AUX in.

Once we see the head unit someone will chime in. With mine, MB sells a "kit" that's essentially a cable with the connector that inserts into the back of the head unit and reaches over to the outboard side of the glove box. There's a small knockout spot on the side of the glove box where the 1/8" / 3.5 mm jack snaps into the glove box.

If it turns out to be the same connector as mine with your unit, it's simple to remove the plastic panel below the dash on the passenger side (search on the site here, it's about 3 screws to remove then pop it out). Then you can probably see the back of your head unit with using a flash light to inspect for the connection point.

Pictures below are a 2006 COMAND NTG1 for comparison. AUX-IN connector is the tiny square connection on back of HU in center, and the user end of it is the stainless steel jack with black plastic retainer ring in the glove box.
