Bluetooth Hands Free kit

Anybody know of good deals on Bluetooth hands free kits for the car.
Not a headphone/earpiece type. Either one that connects to the sun visor or directly to the cigarette lighter would be good. Need to be able to charge it in car, my headset one is always flat.

Price range £40 to £70.

Thanks.

I have Parrot CK3000 Evo and it is perfect. Works with all phones I ever had and support is very good.
But if you do not want to buy 'installed' one try these
.
When I chose mine, my priority list was as follows:
1. Permanently attached. The reason for that was because of me and my better half are not really well organised, so I knew for sure that anything that requires to be attached or switched on manually, will be of no use for us.
The CK3000 starts when engine is started and switches itself off when engine is off.
2. Not visible to 'elements'. These things are nickable and I didn't want some druggie to damage my car because of phone kit.
3. Future-proof. Because the first two requirements pushing towards 'installed' or 'professional' :) kits, I do not want to change it every time I get a new phone. So far, my CK3000 works with every phone I tried (SE T610, SE K750, Nokia 6230, TMobile MDA, TMobile MDA Compact, TMobile SDA).

That looks interesting, if you got a new car could you move it easily? How was it installed/setup? I take it's permantely hooked up to the power of the car?

Yes, it can be moved with a minimal effort. Basically, installation is fairly easy - the CK3000 got two ISO connectors. So you unplug power cable from your radio and plug it to CK3000, then plug CK3000 power cable to radio.
Same thing applies to speaker connector. If your radio got Telephone mute connector (1 pin required), you can wire it to CK3000. In this case, car radio will be automatically paused when there is a call. If there is no Telephone input, like on my basic Fiat Punto, then radio will continue to play, but Parrot will disconnect it from speakers during call.
The only problem is when your radio got non-ISO connectors. In this case, you will need to buy harness from non-ISO to ISO (to connect Parrot to car) and ISO to non-ISO to connect Parrot to radio. Both can be bought cheaply on eBay. I recon I paid something like 3 or 4 quid for new Mondeo adaptor.

It took me two hours or so to install it in Fiat and less than an hour to put it to Mondeo. The reason Fiat installation took longer was that radio in Fiat hasn't got IGN off line. It (Fiat radio) senses the voltage level (it is 14-15v when ignition is on and ~12v when it is off) and then decides whether ignition is on or off. However, Parrot isn't that intelligent, so I ended up running a wire from ignition switch directly to Parrot. Nothing special really :) The only problem was that initially I incorrectly wired it to front lights, so Parrot was only working when lights were on :) Then I changed it to the right one and had no problems since then (touch wood).
Their distributor Mobiland was really helpful and when I found software error in Parrot, they provided me with upgrade kit free of charge.
