Since you didn't get the bluetooth from the factory (and I don't mean to harp on it, but why?)...The next best option is a Parrot Bluetooth handsfree kit. Parrot makes alot of the car kits in Euro cars. I have had one installed on one of my vehicles and am getting ready to put one in my wife's Jetta (she drives that for work). You can get a wiring harness that allows direct plug and play, as well as (I believe) use of the steering wheel controls....

Hope it helps...

Thanks for the info. My wife needed a car immediately and it was the only one with the right color (monaco blue) and packages my wife wanted (technology and heated seats).
