Mercedes Benz Audio

Mercedes audio systems in the pre 90s cars is pretty simple. Adequate but nothing special. Many people like to keep the sound system stock for originality.

Others, (uhm, like me) want to see an electronic pinball machine sort of display where the Am/Fm radio used to be, and 12 speakers.
