It only has it if the first owner ordered it from the factory with the system. And most US customers donít order cars. They go to the dealership between breakfast and lunch and pick whatís on the lot. They donít wait 6 months until itís made to order like the rest of the world. Simple people.

Please tell me where on the attached I have the phone prep! Like Mackhack said, our cdi's (or any W-211) do not normally come with phone prep unless special ordered.

In case you did not order probably they at least prewire in case you change your mind later and you buy the Bluetooth !

If not pre wired , probably if you know someone good at this stuff you can buy they Bluetooth module for 40-50$ and wire it up at armrest console where there yiu neee ti add the Bluetooth to connect with your phone !

Parts I found for your car is
Main Bluetooth module :

Bluetooth that connect your phone with car is either one, not sure : B67875856 or B67875855

Lots of false information here. I would simply stop. Itís much more involved than simply looking up a used old control module. Nothing is really ďprewiredĒ for a phone system.

NTG1 EURO

Hi there,
I just purchased euro command. Here is a pic on the back. Question, do i need any thing extra to add so i can plug in camera and as well dvd in motion? And whats the ports for?
Very appreciated.

The Euro model stores its contacts/address book differently than the US model when in Euro mode, hence the difference in phone book download. I personally have never successfully downloaded entries from my phone to the COMAND in Euro mode, but that is honestly not an important feature for me. I have a Bluetooth adapter with MHI cradle and also a CDMA Motorola V710 phone - neither will download address book entries in Euro mode.

The main thing you will need to be concerned with regarding your needs would be what optical drive comes in the unit. It seems the US COMAND units shipped with "undocumented" DVD optical drives until around MY2005. All Euro COMAND models with the VIDEO button have the DVD optical drive. If it has a DVD optical drive, it will play DVD-based MP3 media assuming it has current software. With that said, the US and Euro models do take different software and if running current software will refuse an incorrect software update. If you are running a Euro COMAND that did not come with your car, I would not recommend having the dealer perform COMAND service.

The frequencies for radio are all adjusted in the AGW in the rear of the car. You will not have any FM or AM tuning issues. When in Euro mode, you gain RDS mode (which half works) and the option for Traffic information (which does not work) and lose WeatherBand and SAT. You can always change the variant using the 5-3-7 code to change it to a US variant and you will essentially get the same as a US COMAND with DVD MP3 capability, SAT radio option, WeatherBand, and "normal" phonebook download, and lose DVD Video.
