    Parrots have quite a few issues with Nokia's BTW.

    Personally I'm going for a Nokia Bluetooth kit CW-30 or something with a brodit mount so that no holes will have to be drilled. Followed by a holder for my Nokia N80. Why I hear you say although its bluetooth? Because the N80 has rubbish reception and I can use an external antenna (already fitted) with the kit. Bargain!

    Parrot CK3000 Evo. I've an older model CK3000, now in it's 4th car and I think I've had 5 phones on it. Even with the truely ancient firmware on the CK3000 it works 100% with my Nokia 6300. Even worked fine with my Motorola V3 which was a pickky bugger on Bluetooth.

    Ive got the Nokia CK7W. No problems at all. Good sound. No problems on the other end either. Only con is no screen or such so you will have to look at your phone to see who is calling but that no problem really for me.

    Its small. Tidy. and Nippy

    Make that all makes have problems with nokia's mainly cause Nokia like to adjust bluetooth standard protocols to suit there needs. Heck even there own kits would not work with the N95 till recently and most of theres still do not.

    But personally I would stick with the parrot for all round compatibility of most makes if you are a brand loyal person then the make you support would probably be better.

    Does the Nokia kit link in to the stereo, so the sound comes out of the car speakers, and not the stupid little speaker under the dash?

    My old Parrot has a switching relay and amp in it that sends the telephone though the car speakers. Waaaay better than the crappy Nokia speaker which I had on my old Nokia cradle kit.
