SL 65 phone

I purchased an 06 sl65 this week and found out it does not have the internal phone hot shoe or the phone option. I searched previous threads and found that some 06 mercedes were "plumbed" or "hardwired" for cordless phones but some models were not. Obviously I do not have the factory option but would like to know if the sl65 is one of the models that is automatically prewired and, if so, if anyone knows of the cheapest way to get it bluetoothed to at RAZR in the aftermarket.

Sorry to bother you all but I called Mercedes dealerships and found the experience to be a bit frustrating.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Maybe...

Fiscon has the answer.

I got their Bluetooth interface for the wife's S4 and it integrated flawlessly for handsfree Iphone operation.

My SL has the phone option but no phone. Where can I buy one?

Not really - I needed to buy the special head-unit removal tools ($15), once I could pull the head-unit out, it was simple plug and play. The only other installation is for the microphone wire to be routed from the new wire loom to the rear view mirror (or a place of your choice).
The only snag is probably on the coding - who has Star diagnostic? Probably just dealers... I have the excellent and affordable VAG-COM for the Audi for the 3 channels that needed modification.
