328i, correct iPhone adapter

Hello,

I have an iPhone 4. I'm wondering what would be the correct iPhone adapter to get for this car so that I can connect the phone to the car's systems and charge it at the same time.

Do I need to have selected some sort of special option when purchasing the car to enable this? or can I simply buy an adapter?

As it is I can stream audio from the iPhone over the car's stereo system via Bluetooth. I also have the iPhone paired with the car for phone conversations via bluetooth.

I am seeing kits for sale on Amazon, but I'm just not sure what would work for me.

Do you have BMW apps? If yes then you need the media version so that pandora, MOG, Facebook, twitter, video playback, etc shows up on the iDrive display.

Hmm...no I think I have something called BMW Live, no BMW Apps.
How would I know if I had BMW Apps?

Ok no, all I see there is BMW Live.

So given that, what adapter set would I need to purchase?

I am not sure but you may not need a snap in. Not sure if it will be beneficial with your setup. You may need to ask your dealer.
