Post My first Benz - already have some questions

2007 C230 in the Midwest (Wisconsin)
Bought vehicle with 41K miles, but in great condition

I am looking forward to the threads/knowledge/tips on accessories/questions related to my MB C230

Things of interest currently:
a) Snow tire options:
* Existing rims and change twice a year (all season to snow and back)
* Buy simple steel rims that fit a Benz, then put regular snow tires on them (question about options here)
b) Cellphone integration options:
* The dashboard has the phone buttons, but I don't believe my car is pre-wired because the center storage console doesn't have any visible wiring (bummer). Is there any place I can use my VIN to determine what options like this my vehicle is supposed to have? This would help me know what my "starting point" is for thread questions...
* Bluetooth?
* Upgrade kits? Is this something I can do on my own (I'm an electrical engineer and have done a number of these types of upgrades/changes to other vehicles before, so I'm not shy about doing this type of work )? Where can I buy such a kit and get clear installation instructions?
