Ive done the Bluetooth UHI cradle, It will cost your around 360 pounds without installation if not mistaken.

They can install it for you, takes 2-5 days.

To go from pre-wired to installed takes about an hour to be honest but it appears most dealers charge for a day at the least and i have no idea why.

If you are already running a phone then you can get the bluetooth puck and fit it yourself it goes in place of the cradle

Mercedes have released a new bluetooth cradle (HFP) not (SAP). Part number is B67875877. This pretty much works with most of the phones out on the market . We tested it on 15 different phones which were not listed as being compatible with it and it worked fine .

I don't know whether it will accept 2 phones at once however , but it is a very reliable new system from Mercedes.

Now if i could just remember the names of the dealers in London!

I am tech director for a Merc indy so i tend to get the chance to do a bit of everything but service is my main field.

Anyways better not go too far off topic i look forward to your thread and until then welcome to SLKWorld!
