Bluetooth Adapter Part Numbers

Having spent several hours reading threads on this site and elsewhere, I remain confused about my bluetooth options.

I have a 2005 E class and currently I'm using the cradle with Mercedes V710 phone. I'm planning to purchase a Verizon Blackberry Curve and want to upgrade to bluetooth. A few questions:

1. Is BT adapter part number B67875878 still the latest version? How is this different than the adapter under part number b67876131? Can I use either of these? Is there a different part number that would work for my application?

2. How can I tell if I am buying the B67875878 with "new" firmware?

3. Where do most people buy their adapters? My local dealer wants over $500 for the part. It looks like ebay is an option, but I'm concerned that I will not get the correct item/firmware.

Thanks to all and I apologize if this is redundant.

You need 6-7-87-5878


the firmware doesnt matter as the phone is supported with older firmware. The 6-7-87-6131 is VPC only part and it is blocked from ordering. I am guessing it is the black module that is coming with the 2009 cars. I am sure you know of the dangers of ordering from eBay.

If you want the correct part, call AWS and get it.

Question Black module

Will the old module work with a 2008 S550 4Matic? Also is it possible to program the keyless go button to work with another car? Like
My friend gave it to me after he totaled his Benz, and I want to put it on my C300 sports. Thank you.

I just bought B67875878 off ebay for $215 including shipping.

Def use B67875878 esp w/ a blackberry or some features like phonebook d/l might not work.

I'm using it w/ a BB 8830 and it works flawlessly.

If you already have a 6131 BT puck then try it, but you'll find that people had issues with it which is why MB released another one which is the one sold by wireless4mb.com

I just paid $200 + shipping for the latest one. Not bad considering it costs $493 new from the stealer.

Mind sharing where you got the latest BT adapter? I bought one on ebay; listed as new; latest model and with all documentation. Turns out it came out of a lease car that was turned in, and was not the new model. I got the adapter in an envelope, and nothing else. Needless to say PayPal is already processing the refund.

Thanks,

Lightbulb eBay

we got a s550 and the dealer wanted more than 500 for the Bluetooth module, so we got it from eBay. The one I got didn't come with a manual or anything, but it works perfectly. Just make sure the seller has a really high rating. We got our module for 207.50, and that included shipping. Much better than 565 from the dealer
