Your car is has a D2B fiber optic bus, and would originally have been equipped with a V60 phone system if it had one. You cannot assume that all you need is the cradle and Bluetooth adapter.
The information in the third post above : CONVERTING TO BLUETOOTH, MY ‘00- ’04 (except ’03-’04 E and ’04 S-Classes) is as complete as it gets, and contains links to the phone bulletins that will help you identify what you have - or don't have - and show you how to install the basic V60 equipment for plug-in. Once you know what you have, you can identify what you still need, and determine costs. It takes more than a casual read.
Once you have the V60 plug-in equipment, then you need is a V60 puck and a compatible cell phone.
If you have a bit of experience installing car audio, even a complete installation of equipment in a prewired car (see the discussion of the meaning of prewired in the first post) is easy. If you have never done it, you may find the installation confusing.
