W211: Can you hear me? Comand Swap

Plenty out on the internet on radio removal, etc so this one's short and sweet. The Audio 50 that came in the car was pretty well knackered - the screen would only work when the exterior temps were just about near freezing. I can only assume it's got a cold solder joint somewhere in it. I'll open it up and see what it'll take to get the screen working again. 

For now I just decided to throw in a $150 comand system in it. This way I can just pick up a $15 harness for aux input and play whatever I want through the cars sound system.

Definitely looks like it modernized the interior a bit. Because I have nothing better to do with my life and my phone obviously isn't outdated - I just may hook up the factory Nav system and get that feature working. We'll see if I can come across the parts cheap enough though.
