CD Changer For A C240

i posted this in the audio forum but it doesnt look like anyone reads that section.

If anyone can answer a couple questions for me I would greatly appreciate it.

I just purchased a 2002 C240 and chose not to go with the dealers 6 disk changer because the price is quite rediculous. I do, however, still want to get one. My question is what disk changer/adapter/etc should I get that would be the easiest to configure/install and where can i purchase the equipment?

Any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

The CD changer is connected via the Optic Fiber control network. You will need to use the MB one. You can get it at a reduced price from some of the online parts suppliers. There is one, that was indicated in late 2000 on this forum. You might do some searching and find it. It was an MB dealer in the NorthEast that sells parts at a cut rate. The price was good. The name started with a C.

You will need to have it put in by someone that can do it without destroying your trim and your fiber optic network.

Good luck,

I agree that the MB dealer price for this is comical. I called Fletcher-Jones and also Caliber Motors, both in California, for price quotes. You also need the bracket kit. I then went to my salesman and told him that I would pay him the lower of the quoted costs (can't recall exactly) plus one hour shoptime to install it in my new car. He agreed. Cost ended up right around $600 which is still to much but it's better than the first number. The console must be disassembled to plug the unit in but besides that the car must be programmed to accept it. This the tech did with his laptop.
