Happy new (to me) c230K, with a couple newbie questions

I just bought a 2003 c230 'sport coupe' (hatchback). I REALLY like it. I haven’t been this excited to go for a drive since I was about 16 However, there were a couple of things on it the dealership (not a MB dealer) couldn't answer:

1. A black wire with a 'phone cord' coil coming out of the roof near the rear view mirror. It has a small 'probe' on the end that looks like it could be for power or a phone. The dealership seemed to think it was for a phone, but the length (maybe 6") didn't seem right. A phone would have to dangle right in mid-air. I was thinking it may be an after-market DC power source for a radar detector or something like that.

2. There are red and black 'jacks' in the trunk area (on the passanger side), they look to be air hose ports, and I can see a blue tube running out of them. There’s no reference to it in the user manual that I can find. My guess would be for adjusting the tire air-pressure from the trunk, which seems odd to me.

Thanks in advance for any advice, comments, or thoughts.
