Your note concerning alarm systems isn't NECESSARILY true. Many 124s, including my '92 and Jim Viller's '94 have put the Crutchfield solution in AND the factory alarms still work. Mine has worked flawlessly for 10 months now. It's a fairly simple install in most cases (a few folks with older cars or 126s have reported some differences to me). IF you need it tied into the factory alarm (most alarms work without doing that), there are instructions from the Mercedesshop site for tying into the convenience controller... I'd go with the Crutchfields solution over the JC Whitney one any day - Crutchfields offers free support for their products, and those that had problems with their installation have had them documented by Crutchfields support.
