    I have a 1999 Mercedes Benz ML 320 SUV with 6 disc CD changer in the rear compartment. I would like a harness to allow insertion of an iPod. I recall seeing a website with the product a few years ago, but can't find it now.

A work around is to use the tape deck (if it comes with 1) or you could get the new pioneer sound it has radio, bluetooth audio (listen music from fones via bluetooth) calls through bluetooth, cds, 3d graphics and so on.....every thing is transferred through the cars staereo speakers......

I have a C180 Kompressor Coupe. I wondering which

what stereo?
some mercedes have a 3.5mm stereo jack point hidden in the glove box.
There are devices available such as The Dension ice Link Plus is this an option to investigate? (plugs into CD changer socket on back of stereo and allows steering wheel control to work)
Is an after market stereo an option? does yours have an aux input? if there are red and white phono leads at the rear then you could run a 2x phono to jack plug lead straight to your ipod.

I have C320 4matic (2005) car and I'm wondering if I can add after market Aux input. Please let me know.

You should be able to do that, but probably it will mean a 1/8th in jack in your dash that you attach your ipod to, and you will lose your disc changer in the process. This is a very inexpensive fix ($30 or so). There is also an expensive way to do it, which will give you full funcionality with your ipod, but it's close to $1000 and I didn't want to spend that much. I just did this with my 2000 ML320, and will soon want to do it to my 2006 C280 4Matic. I suggest logging on to the Mercedes Benz Enthusiast forum at: and open an account, then punch in "ipod C320 retrofit" and other terms like that. This issue has likely been discussed on there (my ML question had complete instructions, which I can send you if you would like) and there are very helpful people who will do their best to help. It's a fantastic resource!

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue w/ bose stereo how to hook up Ipod

I woudnt reccomend a direct feed to your system unless it has a input on the stereo such as a aux in with an 1/8" plug. The other reccomended way is from an FM transmitter that plugs in to your Ipod and brodcasts it to your car stereo. They work great and you wouldnt know theye are not hard wired. Walmart, Radio Shack all have these transmitters. If your stereo does have an aux in with an 8th inch plug on it then simply go to radio shack and get a 1/8" male to 1/8th male stereo adapter and plug it in. Wiring the ipod without these two features will destroy both the ipod and car stereo as it creates a loop feedback against each other.
