Question Power from cigarette lighter

Hi... I was wondering if there is a way to cut the power from the cigarette lighter with your ignition... I just got a FM transmitter for my IPod and its annoying to have to remove the transmitter from the lighter everytime I turn my car off... I would like to make it like most other cars where the power cuts offs as soon as you turn the car off...
thanx for your help...

'04 330Ci
'00 Kawasaki ZX9-R

Now looking for an M3

Just tap a wire in to to a power source that goes on and off with your ignition, should be a spot in your fuse panel for that. and run that to your ciggie lighter. The one on there now is just a 12v constant off the battery.
