The USB dock in the F30 will charge your iPhone just fine. It will operate the iPad, but doesn't provide enough current to charge an iPad.

If you search the part number on Amazon, there are merchants selling them there. I don't know if there are any that will ship to you, but that might be worth a look.

so can videos in my iphone be viewed in the idrive screen? that would be really cool.

if it can, i suppose it's sufficient to use the usb cable, and not necessarily the snap in adapter?

If you have any DRM free videos on your iPhone, they will play on the iDrive screen. So no iTunes purchases. And only when parked.
