I did wonder to go for the HK stereo but can happily say the factory fit is great. I also thought I would miss the COMAND system but the Becker SatNav is good and have just slammed in a 16GB USB stick for my music. Music also plays via bluetooth from my iPhone so can carry on playing whatever I was listening to on my phone. Sunroof is a boon.
Do you have the Media Interface or just the USB and 3.5mm jack?

I am wondering if I can get iPod videos to play on the screen through the Media Interface (I have Audio 20 and Becker on my car-to-be too) but no-one has been able to tell me so far.

No media interface, just plain USB and AUX 3.5mm socket.

Lovely looking car. I cannot understand why anyone would think a diesel is boring and undesirable when you can get cars like this.

Looks Good,
You went from petrol to diesel huh - hows that feel ?

for me i'd like to see how this sits in the Coupe range, in regards to the CLK/CLS/E Class

maybe i'll tke a wander down the dealership and have a look - pics of the inside ? .... what were the options you took ?

I went for the one i have, because i liked it, the derparture from the norm for MB

@MonkeyLegend - Indeed! The Scooby H6 was a blast and sounded great, 4WD as well but the 20MPG was crazy. You can pick up some bargains with this car and I was tempted with a 59 plate replacement. But with it being so thirsty residuals just plummet. I can honestly say, even with the little amount of time with the C350, it is incredibly quick, 7g auto is a breeze and I get 40MPG even with a very heavy right foot and just blasting around town. Yes you know its a diesel when you start it but after its warmed up you hardly notice.

@350_Coupe - I think the C350 CDI Coupe is imminent according to my $tealer. Will get some pics of the inside and post up. I got the following options: Panoramic sunroof, heated leather seats, Becker nav and piano black trim.

Nice car.

Becker was on a loan car I had. Quite nice - like an upmarket intergrated TomTom.

V6 C classes are quite a rare sight as others have said, but once driven you'd never want a four cylinder. Glad you're enjoying it!

Reading about it, its ideal, cheaper and updatable. Can it be fitted to a 211?

You need the screen in the dashboard I guess but best bet is to ask your $tealer.

Must admit haven't seen any C350s around - seen plenty of E350 and it also nice to burn off the BMW 335d drivers at the lights

@texasJohn - you can get a cable that allows video to be played - but I think it is only for Comand. See below from the latest C Class accessories catalogue.

Media Interface video cable
Transforms your Mercedes-Benz into a cinema: the Media Interface video cable allows you to watch videos on the monitor of your COMAND Online – while the vehicle is stationary. Various video sources (e.g. camcorder, iPod video, iPhone, video player, etc.) can also be connected to the Media Interface via the AUX connection
Only in conjunction with Media Interface (Code 518). Does not support your iPhone’s phone function. Please contact your Mercedes-Benz partner for details of other function restrictions.

Does this addon allow me to play music on my phone through the stereo and get all the ID3/Album art data on the screen if I do not have COMAND?

Nice looking car, cracking choice of engine and a nice spec.

Out of interest, what interior colour did you go for?
