well some car recievers(like mine which is still stock) have a AUX port built in them them and you can plug the ipod in to that. not as good as a BMW one but it does keep everyting digital. I still want something where I could fold down the face plate. slide my ipod in then put the face plate back up and be able to control it from the controls on the face plate and I would like it to still able able to play CDs

If you look at Apple's iPod site you get...

http://www.apple.com/ipodphoto/accessories.html

Which shows you a BMW logo with a link to this...

http://www.apple.com/ipod/bmw/

Which has a link to...

http://www.ipodyourbmw.com/

Edit: of course there are only links for BMW, Mercedes, and Volvo right now -- but a bunch of other car logos.
