R230: install aftermarket HU?

Has anyone ever attempted to swap out the HU on an R230/ 2005 SL600? Is it similar to the threads I've seen on swaping out an R171 HU?

Objectives are REAL iPod integration, Bluetooth & Nav.

Pretty much the same sort of issues - ie everything A/V in the car is on the MOST bus, and without the HU you'll lose all those bits.

I've heard (but no personal experience) that it's damned near impossible to find a decent trim piece to make a double din head look good in the car.

PM the VIN, I'll pull the datacard for you and see what's what.
