Ok when you guys say that Mercedes are a "pain" or "hard" what do you mean by that? Space? Things are hard to locate? etc....?
Just trying to figure out what it's all about. If it's a fact or a myth about Mercedes.
Thanks.

Older Camery and Cadys are great.  Dodge Intrepid sucked as far as taking the entire dash out to get to wires but install was easy after that.

mazda rx7: pretty simple except for the locking. You need to add a motor and its a PITA

Saturn Ion's are a PITA, from a RS/Security standpoint. Figuring out the door lock stuff on the newer Silverado's was "fun". And like pretty much everyone else, I tend to cringe when I see ANY new European car cross my path - just waaay too much computer for a newbie (unless you enjoy late nights, tons of coffee, and lack of hair from pulling it out in frustration).

Any car is a attemptable car for any professional installer.  If you are a profressional installer and you feel certain cars are to risky to attempt you need a new line of work.  I have done cars nobody thinks you can do.  The only and most important key is to use simple testing procedures to firgure out how to wire up to a car.  Your meter and ohms law and basic knowledge of relays and exp[erience.  For example i have recently attempted an audi a6  no tech info of any kind after a bit of work i found out how to get it done.  Dont be afraid to attempt just be careful and take your time and know when to stop when you run into something that is beyond your scope if you dont know how to wire up or test for something ask someone else with more experience and if you ask and they dont know then its probably time to stop the install.
i hate ebay they are stealing my business

In my opinon the "EASIEST" install would be the "Buick Rendevous". 45 minutes and your done. Lots of room to get to stuff and is all mainly located in the center concoule, which you could stuff a dead body in there. As for the "HARDEST" one I would have to say the "2002 Caravans". Man I hate doing those.
