Mercedes are just starting to supply Sirius kits for the 2004 models. No factory XM Radio kits are available for either BMW nor Mercedes.

I think 2004 is the earliest model that will take the kit.

Since I like XM Radio much better than Sirius, I think I'm going to buy a portable XM Radio package that I can use in my 300E and also in a new E-Class I hope to buy soon.

The Mercedes kit is $679 plus labor to install it. For that you get 14 months of Sirius service.

The portable XM Radio kit is about $200 with either an FM or cassette adaptor.

I have a 2001,, and if the 2004's are now coming out with the XM radio,, then i would imagine that it would fit in the same spot, because they havent changed teh dash at all.. As far as wiring goes, i woould imagine i may have to run an antenna or possibly use the prewired antenna already there,,, any ideas people?

Installation Instructions For 2004 C-Class

Go here and click on C Sedan.

http://home.earthlink.net/~phdwebsite/satellite_bulletins.htm

These are the instructions for installing the Sirius kit in a 2004 C-Class. It'll show you want comes with the kit and how it's installed. I don't know if it could be retrofitted to older C-Class cars.

The alternative is to go to Best buy and get an XM Radio Roady and FM modulator adaptor.

There is no XM Radio from the factory, it's Sirius (unfortunately).

There is no change to anything on the dash. The changes are in the trunk. The electronics that come with the kit tie into the fiber optics bus just like a CD changer would.

See my post above.
