It can be done: http://www.parrotkits.com/donotcut.html#QCBMW-F

To use the OEM steering wheel Phone button to make/end calls with this kit, use: http://www.parrotkits.com/steeringwheel.html

I installed the Parrot CK3000 Evolution (no display) in a 2003 Honda Accord and I'm very impressed with the performance for the price. For some $150.00 including the dedicated vehicle wiring harness, this kit was 100% plug 'n play without cutting or splicing any wires. This is a very simple and effective Bluetooth adapter for any car: voice menu, pretty good voice recognition, voice Caller ID if the caller is programmed into the voice phonebook (no need for display), voice commands for make/end calls so most of the time the included button is not required for functionality, phonebook transfer (manual or automatic depending of the phone) and quick pairing. For BMW's the OEM ULF is a much better solution just because of the full integration with the car electronics, especially the Nav display. But it is also almost 5 times the price of this Parrot kit...

IMO, it is a great product for the price, and that's the basic kit...

Hi
I also have a 2003 Honda Accord and am also thinking of getting the Parrot CK3000 Evolution car kit - can I ask where/how you installed the mic and controller? I'm not sure where it would be best to locate them, so I'd love to know how you did it!

Many thanks
Ed
