    The black and white ck3100?

    They work via bluetooth so when you switch your ignition on the phone kit looks for your phone and connects to it. In most cases the phone book then downloads to the kit so you can dial out through it. When you get a call you just press a button on it to answer, the sound then comes out your car speakers and there's a seperate mic

    Fitting will depend on your car and if you have the factory stereo. If you have a aftermarket headunit in a MK4 then it's plug and play

    You'd need a adaptor lead for that headunit, a autoleads SOT-053 I believe
