This morning I took my SLK200 (2006 reg) to a get a quote for installing BT and use of fully integrated mobile phone
The engineer (not MBD) confirmed the care is not wired and need to be rewired (which I knew from reading in the forum)

I have a Parrot bluetooth hands free that uses the steering wheel controls. and is also voice activated I find its really good. Once you have syncronised it with your phone you just press the phone button on the wheel and say the name and it dials it. Or say PHONE then the name of your contact and it dials Then at the end of the call say HANG UP and it disconnects the call Ł275 fitted.

If you click on my name and look in my "garage" there are pictures of it

Hi John
Thanks for speedy response
I had a look at yours, it looks great, your option is much better ( less than ˝)
I will definitely look into it
