Bluetooth phone connection for 2005 E320 CDI

Trying to determine if my car has the jack and wiring for the Bluetooth phone adapter. All the videos I've been able to find on YouTube show the model with the split center console/arm rest. My car's console has the roll-back wood top. I've looked all around in there and can't find anything that resembles a connector. Is there some other place it would be on this model?

A new "no handheld device" law is about to take effect here in N.H. so I'm hoping I can make use of the car's built-in phone function.

Thanks.

If your car has option code 387 or 389 (pre-wiring for communication system) and The hands-free communication/cellular phone kit was installed you're good to go. It doesn't sound like the kit's been installed though. You need to find out if you've got option codes 387 or 389. This can be found on a VMI. You're local dealer can check this for you.

MB no longer supplies phone parts for the old cars. A company called AutoKonnect bought up all the old stuff FWIW

Thanks for the reply. I checked the VIN and no luck on either of those option codes. I assume it'll be no small task to add the needed wiring/equipment at this stage?

I solved the problem by simply purchasing a Jawbone ear piece. It works beautifully with minimal "installaton"...

It's not worth the time or money. Why spend good money to install an outdated system?

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I'll take KarTek's suggestion and get an ear piece.
