    Best Bluetooth Option

    I would like to fit a Bluetooth solution for my car, currently got a symphony II headunit & BOSE with no plans to change, dont have MF steering wheel, my phone is currently a iPhone 3G but getting an iPhone 4 shortly.

    just interested into finding out what others in the same situation have done, i would like an OEM option ideally however it is a bit pricey, any other options out there?

    Ive just copied the below off my progress thread off another forum:

    Parrot mki9200 Fitted, Its fantastic. With the control on the steering wheel, I can play songs off my ipod which i leave in the glovebox and it charges etc so i never have to touch it. I can also ring people off the control as it is connected to my iphone via bluetooth and play songs off my phone. It takes sd cards and usb etc.

    ive also made a few changes to it, to make it look more oem such as where it says parrot I dissolved the lacquer and sanded down to get rid of the parrot logo than re painted with the audi logo.

    I have a Parrot 3200LS Colour in the Goof and can confirm it is superb. I think anything from the "fitted" Parrot range would be similar. Without a doubt the best and clearest hands free unit I have ever used bar none. Problem free in the two years it has been fitted too and with me covering 50,000 miles a year it gets some hammer.
    BTW, no, I don't work for Parrot!
    If it can't be fixed with a hammer, then it must be an electrical problem

    I had a Parrot with Audi MFSW interface fitted, and it was great while I had the Symphony 2+ head unit.

    I only felt the need to upgrade when I retrofitted RNS-E navigation... because of the dialing from the head unit etc.

    The Parrot was plug & play, the OEM needed much more work, but is excellent once fitted & finally working.

    Plugging in the Parrot:

    Well if you dont mind a visor bluetooth device then ive just bought a "Supertooth buddy". Daft name i know but it really is good. Paired with the IPhone in seconds. I know an OEM phone kit would be better but they are quite expensive. 50 is all it costs and at least you can move it to another car should you need to

    What kind of price are you looking at for the OEM to go with RNS-E??? When someone says dear, how dear??? I currently have a Nokia but want the OEM really.
