iPhone USB connection port


I've been thinking about having an iPhone USB connection port installed so that I can control the music through the iDrive system AND use the Bluetooth feature to make/receive calls.

I have a few questions:

1. Is it worth it? Currently, I have my iPhone connected through the AUX jack in the armrest compartment. However, it is a bit of a hassle to change songs while driving (an accident waiting to happen). Hence a desire to control it through the iDrive. So if anyone has the iPhone hooked up to the iDrive, please share the feedback.

2. My iPhone software update is at 1.1.3. Will the BMW connection kit still work? So far I get contradicting information...

3. Anyone knows an OEM part # for BMW's iPhone USB connection port?

I wish that I knew the answer to this, I tried connecting to the iPod interface plug and it isn't supported hardware yet. I have only seen an iPhone cradle for the armrest, but I don't think it plays music only takes advantage of the cars antennae to enhance signal strength.
