Apparently there is a lot of buzz on the "iPHONE 4, iPHONE 3 get very hot" issue.
Google search for your benefit with many posts: http://www.google.com/search?q=iPHON...rlz=1I7PRFA_en
A safe option althought time consuming is to log a service call and document the issue with your BMW service dept. If your charging iPhone 4 causes damage to your 7, liability will be with your BMW dealer that logged your complaint and Apple.
I'll say, all is normal for the heat due to battery type and voltage/current requirements to charge the device. No manufacturer wants a product liability issue and thier attorneys will make sure of a win to protect company assets.

Many electronics operate in very warm to hot conditions all perfectly normal: automotive radar detectors on dash in the sun post parking, modern vacuum tube audio, class A amplification, plasma displays, pro audio gear,etc.

Good luck, keep posting updates with your results.
