2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

2004's are "satelite ready" but Mercedes is not saying when the Sirius Satelite radios will indeed be available. And of course the electronics are such that you can't have one installed at your local Tweeter store. You pay for a feature that may never arrive and end up with a system that you can't modify on your own. Only the in dash CD player plays mp3 CD's -not the 6 CD changer in the trunk, which by the way, a Mercedes techical bulliten says jams. Disappointing to say the least. I'll revisit the Phaeton or wait for 2005 to start the search anew.

Suggested Improvements

Update styling. Provide mp3 capable 6 CD changer. Actually implement the Satelite radio program. Get the 7 speed automatic on the 4matic S's.
