Hi, I bought a 2005 last week and it is sweet! I want to replace the original standard audio unit with a new one. So I go by Audio Express and the dude tells me if it's fiber optic it can't be replaced. I took that to mean "Audio Express can't do it, but it can be done."

In Amazon I found this knockoff unit with a 7 inch touchscreen. A search of "Freeform for Benz SLK-COMAND APS NTG 2.5-for W171" will find it and includes photos. I was thinking about buying it and telling the Audio Express dude "Install this!" I think my SLK350 would not be the same after I tried it myself and pryed the dashboard apart with screwdrivers...

Anyway, this knockoff is made in China by a company called Shenzhen LSQ Star Electronic Co., Ltd. and the model is ST-8801. Has anyone bought one of these before? I don't want to wind up with something I'll wind up taking my slegdehammer to.

Allegedly, they are rubbish. Check out THIS thread.

As JB says, use the search function - there are plenty of threads on both that unit, and changing the HU generally.
