Welcome to the forum. This place is a wealth of info for all BMW, but especially the E90/91/92/93. Cars with the ipod package have a USB port in the console along with the aux input. This allows control of the ipod or in your case your iphone 4 from the radio.

If you don't have the factory bluetooth for your phone (you can try to pair the phone and car to see if you have it) for cars without this a good option is the Kinivo bluetooth unit. Gives bluetooth phone calls and music streaming, members here report excellent sound quality. Here is a url for the unit.

Thanks for the response I've not got the USB port in the console it's just the AUX port. As for Bluetooth there is no button on the headunit so can't try pairing. There does appear to be a mic in the car. Will post a pic of mic when I get home
