    Ive got that in my Signum Elite. The cradle is about £100 or so. I didnt bother buying one as you can connect your phone via the bluetooth and save yourself the cash. I stuck a small round magnet (from carphone warehouse, I think) on where the cradle fits and the phone sits on there or stays in my pocket. The only problem Ive found is that the voice activation is a bit temperamental and doesnt respond very well.
    Good luck, JIm

    The cradle in the car will only charge the phone, the phone connects to the HFU via bluetooth, most people, myself included get rid of the bluetooth cradle bit and replace it with a drinks holder.. the cradle simply pulls off and the drinks holder / cubby hole fit inplace..

    The main problem with charging and keeping a tidy and factory look with the newer SE's is the charger ports are on the side. I bought the only official solution, the HCH-70 in conjunction with the CLA-60 Its mounted on a brodit no holes mount. At the moment its charging through the cigi lighter but its going to get hard wired soon.

    Ebay mate, you might even find a kit on there, as in holder+charger.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, with that set up you can plug your FM Modulator in the side of the holder using the SE headphone jack
