I'm such a geek...
Ok, so now we got that part out of the way; pay attention! I went online and ordered this part from Meritline:
Read the description and you'll get it...
So that allows you to plug your iPhone's stereo output into the auxiliary input of your car stereo. No big deal right? Even better is you can clip the microphone to your collar and call people and play their voice through your car stereo too!
Except for one problem... The cable is about 3 feet long. Where are you going to put your iPhone? Hold it in your hand? So much for hands free! So I also got this:
Now for the FUN part! The Modding....
I found an old telephone cable (yes, land line) and gave it a glorious future; a new chance at life! It was to become the wire that I'd be using to relocate the handsfree microphone to an acceptable place in my car. I had to do a little soldering.

Car mount in the car... it's awesome... very sturdy and it even swivels so I can rotate it to the passenger side to let them control the iPhone..
Here's the mic. I hadn't put heatshrink around it since it was getting late... It looks nice with the heatshrink! I'll take better pics tomorrow and update this post...
And... watch the video! ... because I didn't take any more pictures (it was late).
Near the end of the video, you hear the infamous cell phone buzzing.... stupid buzzing! I'm going to try tackling that problem this weekend with some ferrite cores. (google it). Anyway, the buzzing only lasts for a few seconds when you start dailing or when the internet kicks in for the first time. Still, I'm gonna try getting rid of it altogether.
Should I make a few of these and sell them?
