Best iPod integration for E46 w/ Nav?

Wondering if there's anything else I should be aware of for iPod/iPhone integration in E46 3-Series sedan with 16:9 Navigation system (other than the DICE Silverline Pro sold by Bavarian Soundwerks, which does not have that item in stock and does not show anything else for the E46).

I do not have any satellite radio and I do not mind removing the CD changer, which I never use.

Mein Auto: 2007 BMW X3
I just picked up a 2007 X3 with a Nav screen. I am told it is "wired" for sat. It does not have a 6 disc changer.

I need a good iPhone 4 integration kit but want to ensure I get something compatible. I have seen similar products list disclaimers that they are not compatible with Nav system and/or sat.

Can someone shed some light on the information for me.

The integration kit that I posted above works for your car as well

Will this kit work if you don't have a USB port in your car - my 07 328i even with premium package just has an aux port only :-(

The USB (Option 6FL) is not required - you can install the mObridge and have iPod connectivity also on your e9x 3-series.
