I have been considering upgrading the radio in my 1983 300D. I would like
something that looks decent in the dash and matches the rest of the car -
unfortunately there are few new radios that have the amber backlighting like
Mercedes uses. Does anyone know if it would be difficult to install a used
1999+ E class radio into a 1983 300D? Do the 1999+ radios have internal or
external amplification? I would also be interested in installing a used
Mercedes or Alpine changer as well. I think these radios use fiber optic.
Would there me any major complications pulling this off? I assume I would
need the radio, changer, wiring harness and fiber optic cable. Any ideas
would be greatly appreciated.
