2008 MB E350 telephone saga

Over past 30 years I have own nothing but German cars. Mostly MB and BMW. Some were wonderful other were simply put mediocracy on wheels. I just got 2008 MB E350. Since I travel a lot I do a lot of business on the phone. I thought there should be no problem with the car's intergrated telephone system, as I never experienced it in the BMW cars. Wrong! First I learned that I have to install the Blue Tooth adapter. Which is not a problem. Then I find out that my car may not be pre-wired for the telephone at all. I tried to read the manual and no were in that " Diabolical Bible" there is a mention if the car is or inn't pre-wired for the telephone. So I went to the Parts Dept. at the local dealership if I could buy the BT adapter and just check and see if my car is pre-wired for the telephone. I find out it wasn't. So much for the MB luxry! And really it should not be a luxry, but a necessety on such a car. So I ask the parts guy if he can order me the parts necesary to wire the thelephone in my car. Even though this process is expencive, I was willing to pay for the conveniance of it. After 20 min. looking into the computer he exclaimed: " Nop! the parts are no longer available." He then proceed to tell me to use one of those visor BT, which I used in my cars in the '90-ties.
Is there anywere that I can find what I need to have the interghrated system working and where I can buy the stuff. I am beginning to miss my BMW. Help!

I personally hate BMW, more problems with BMW, but how are you so rich that you have a BEnz?
