Bluetooth Options--Please Help

So, I am looking to purchase a Bluetooth Unit, and have done some researching, but am still unclear

If I want to go with a Parrott Unit, which one do I need to get? The MK6100, CK3100, or CK3000?

Are there any other manufacturers you guys can recommend?

Im a TOTAL Bluetooth noob, so excuse the dumb questions

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

I really have NO idea what I would need to get BT hooked up in my car....

Is the Parrott all I need?

Why use that aftermarket POS when for $400 you can fit OEM bluetooth into your car?

Well, like I said, I dont know **** about BT

But, I guess $200 sounds much better than $400, thats why I was asking....

Didnt realize you could get OEM for that price though, thats not as bad as I thought.....

Do you have Nav? Bluetooth with Nav is amazing. Adds voice recognition to your Nav system as well as Blutooth... Also, you can use the steering wheel controls to make / receive calls and scroll through the phonebook on the radio interface.

Looks even cleaner with Nav:

No sir, no nav., factory business CD, not even sure Im pre-wired for BT (if thats even possible)

Like I said, I dont know **** about BT....just trying to figure out the most cost effective/quality way to get this setup and utilize steering wheel controls....

Every car sold in North America is pre-wired for Bluetooth. What is the build date of your car?

only way for steering wheel controls is the OEM kit.

here it is on Business radio:
