Question Center Console Cradle

Okay, so on to the next project. Since I haven't received my Diag tool yet, nor my interface cable, nor my tranny kit, nor have the correct part number for my windshield molding (Cover), it's on to the next question....

I have a 2004 525i that has the NON snap-in cradle accessory. Is there a way to convert my cradle into the snap-in version.... or am i just SOL? I know I'm able to take the old cradle out of the center console. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You're not talking about something very common so probably nobody knows. Take a picture and post it and maybe we can help you better...

Sorry it took me so long, but I have attached a pic of where the cradle USED to be. The cradle that was in there was for an old Nokia. I'm trying to get the one for iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. As you can see, it ISN'T the snap in type. You have to completely disassemble the attachment to get the phone cradle out. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
