I would suggest an aftermarket solution I.E. you buy a handsfree set for
the type of mobile phone you are using. This will require a special
console to hold the phone, an additional phone antenna (often glued to
the rear window) and a microphone installed near the sun visor of the
drivers seat. According to the quality of the set this will cost you some
400 Euros (including installation, excluding the mobile phone). I would
not recommend an original carphone for that car, as it is 13 years old
and the phones of that vintage are technically not up to date.
Blaupunkt and Becker sell radio sized units which incorporate a radio, a
CD player and a phone (Becker online pro comes with navigation, too).
This may be a nice situation if you were thinking about a new radio
anyway and if you want to make phone calls in the car but not want to
show everybody the phone. Blaupunkt phone radio costs some 700 Euros
excluding installation, Becker online pro costs about twice as much. If
you want to use a phone installed non-removable in the car, you should
get youself a twin-card (many phone providers offer them). Then you have
two SIM-cards for both your mobile phone and your car phone. Simply
switch your Cellular phone off while sitting in the car.
All the solutions mentioned above should be available from any Car audio
