iPod Adapter

Hello all,

I pick up my car tomorrow and I'm super stoked. Have a question though.

What is the best iPod adapter out there for my car? I do not have iDrive and it is the base stereo.

In my TT, I went with a set up using an Alpine 415i box and a Kufatec switch that totally integrated my iPod into my RNS E head unit that had a screen. Could watch video, use all playlists, get album art etc. Very sweet set up and totally OEM from the interior point of view.(though two switch boxes and cables going on behind the Head Unit.)

Is there a set-up for the 3 series that will enable me to charge the ipod and control it through the head unit? I know my car has an Aux in line, but for safety and convenience, I'd really like to get it through the head unit.
