I bought a low-mileage 1996 s320 from a Mercedes mechanic's estate, & want to add Bluetooth. There's no UHI, of course, but is there any OTHER way to add basic Bluetooth so I can connect my phone?


The head units on those cars is quite outdates. I would consider installing an aftermarket radio. If you don't want to spend much money at this time, then get an Bluetooth FM transmitter.

A few more ideas here.

I'm familiar with those, but since the old MBs don't allow the cigarette lighters to stay depressed, there's no apparent way to power those Bluetooth devices. I don't want to rewire because the car is absolutely pristine.

Ken I would either upgrade the head unit or retrofit a bluetooth transmitter.  Or did you come up with a better solution?
