Help with iPhone snap in adapter

Hello everyone,

New to the e90 world, came from an e46 M3. I purchased this e90 328 LCI (built in October 2008)and I noticed this in the center console (sorry about the crappy iPhone pics):




What type of snap in adapter do I need to purchase for my iPhone 4 and is it even worth getting it? What capabilities will it give me? I tried searching and Im just a bit confused about the 6NF and 6NR stuff. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have a PDF regarding the various capabilities of the cable vs adapter, etc. Flip me your email and I can send it to you, or if I can somehow figure it out I can post it here.

Not really, just use the charging cable. I have it too, and it seems rather useless :-)

I'm sorry, I am no help to you since I just run the apple cable into the USB but I have a question for you...

Does that lighter work in the console ( when the car is running, of course)?

I think that it just uses the shark fin on the top of the car and improves reception. Key word I think.

I'm not sure. I simply swapped it with the one in my front ashtray. I'm not a smoker nor do I want people smoking in my car so I just put the lighter in the console. Sorry I cant be of help.

I have a cable too, but it seems the snap in is more secure and not as clumsy.
