ARGOS Bluetooth Incredible SALE!!!!

I have been asked by the folks at ECP (they are the US distributors for the Argos Bluetooth) to let everyone know about an incredible new sale of the Argos Bluetooth kit. If you have been waiting to purchase yours, now would be the time!!!!!

Here is the deal... You can get your unit until August 31st at 699.00 (that is 100.00 off) PLUS, if you will take your shiny new toy by your local Mercedes Benz shop and show the sales manager and the service manager that it works in your car, then call the guys at ECP with the names and number of the guys you showed, they will give you an additional $100 back!!! So you could end up getting yours for $599!!!

You can call them at 678-528-3443 or see them on the web at www.eurocarphone.com

Bryan, at ECP told me that this will be the last sale of this kind this year... for what it is worth!!

Moderators - is this SPAM?

Some of us can get our cradle "working again" and become Blue Tooth capable using the M-B BT Adapter for $325-$349 from our preferred M-B dealer. This does not render our old phones usable of course, so we will also need to purchase one of several BT-capable phones.

I looked at the site, and wrote to them for advice, and received a reply within the hour. They do seem like a legitimate business, but they want $799 (NOT including the telephone itself) for an adapter that doesn't appear to do anything of benefit beyond the M-B solution.

Thanks,
Musikmann

yes, they are too expensive. you can buy a v60 PSE and cradle on ebay pretty easily, and add to it the mb puck. All up you probably spend around $500 and have something that the dealer / mercedes will always understand / support.

If the argos kit were priced more competitively - say $400, I'd probably go ahead and buy one, because it's less work and hastle to install than replacing the cradle/pse & buying the puck.

Well, I don't use the Argos myself... but two advantages I seem to remember about it when it and other BT options were being dicussed in advance of the official BT module availability were:

1. Doesn't require handsfree kit installation -- just prewiring.
2. Doesn't take up space in upper half of lower console to provide BT (since it doesn't use the MHI cradle interface).

I'd probably buy it too if it were competitively priced. ($399 and $100 rebate for having my dealer install it.) I don't think MB will ever give me a real solution, at any price!

If my recollection about not needing the hansfree kit was true, wouldn't it be more like comparing $1275 (HF + BT module) and $800 (or so) for the Argos? Although.... I just took a look at their site and the BT version still doesn't seem to be avaialble -- oops!

I have a W203 with the OEM headunit installed (I believe its the Audio 20 - US Spec without FM RDS). I DO NOT have the puck installed at the center console, but just have the RJ50. I was able to locate the D2B connector in the trunk (after much digging). Now I want bluetooth connectivity.

I have two options as far as I can see: Get a brand new headunit which will also offer me to connect SD cards and USB drives (incl. my new Android phone). This of course is the most comprehensive solution, but I believe I would also most likely lose my steering wheel controls.

Second option: Much more limited but more effective as I will retain steering wheel control over the BT phone: Get the Argos module for the trunk. However, I'm not willing to shelve out more than 500 bucks for a simple little module since I can buy a new headunit for that price.

Does anyone know where to get a new or used, but functional module for around 100 bucks?

Thanks
