DIY Retro fit Bluetooth kits for new MFSW Minis

We now have the full range of Bluetooth kits for Minis with the new MFSW with Phone buttons. For Wave, Boost & HK - they also work if the car has sat nav.
My interfaces link the Parrot 3000 or Nokia CK7w or Ericsson HCB300 kit to the stereo & MFSW.
It is plug & play, very easy fit (no wires to splice or chop - plugs in behind the factory stereo leaving you to just mount the microphone.
The steering wheel buttons activate voice dialing, answer & end calls. There is no need to mount an ugly seperate controller.
The interface powers the kit, mutes the radio & routes the call through the car speakers as well as giving MFSW control - all from connecting at the stereo.

It is available as just the interface or bundled with the phone kit

This we still dont know - if I had an old shape 3 spoke on my car I would try it for you but mine is a 2 spoke - which I prefare.
p.s. - We had a new Mini in yesterday with a 2 spoke sports MFSW ?? I will be pleased if I can still get one of those on my next Mini

Just fitted the kit into my MCSC today.
It works a treat and was so easy to install after I removed the radio.
I was wondering whether I had missed anything because it was that simple.

I had also bought the ipod ice link plus from newministuff and it was connected to the car kit wires so I didn't have to do a thing.

The install instructions on their website are very good and easy to follow. You can DIY. No need to pay someone to fit it. It took me 1 1/2 hours to do everything.

Thanks Newministuff!!!

The only kits we can get to display on the nav screens are older nokia & ericsson
We should have an interface for the new wheel to Nokia bluetooth in around 3 weeks

How about some sort of interface for us 04 2 spoke wheels to use the dead button? Maybe GBMINI to the rescue?

Mike just bought the bluetooth bits from you (before seeing this post) are any of the bits I have going to be any use in a few weeks time when you have the new kit? or will have to buy a new complete kit?

If I have to buy a new kit may hang on & sell the bits I just got
