iDrive & ipod upgrade

Hi i have a 2007 e92 m3 and was wondering if the idrive can be upgraded to handle the iphone? I currently use a standard audio wire, but would love to get it integrated. Any one aware of an upgrade or similar?

iDrive doesn't need to be upgraded, but BMW (or mObridge) offers an iPod kit that will integrate with your current system.

Absolutely, it will use the iPod-specific features of the iPhone.

There's no difference if you're referring to 6FL package. There is an update Y cable from BMW to support charging on the 3G/3GS models but iPod functions will remain the same.
