    I should order another for the Countryman, it works great, I have been up touring on our mountain roads, not bounce or shake. I really like how it grips.

    Off to the link? Will check both, see if Nathan's and the latest have same cost. :)

    Both links show same price, I used Nathan's, works for me. :Thumbsup:

    Thanks for this tip! I got one before MOTD and it works great. So happy I can use both cup holders for drinks now.

    Mine came today too.

    Of course the MINI is in the shop for the next week or so.

    I have had my Mountek for a couple of months and after a minor modification I love it.

    I was perturbed that the tightening knob aligned with the volume knob on the head unit when the mount was centered in the slot. I know I can adjust volume via the steering wheel controls but I sometimes use the knob for a quick mute. Seeing as there was only enough "play" to slide the mount slightly to the right I took my trusty Dremel and, using a cut-off disc, I enlarged the slot of the CD player...No, No No I did not do that (but I got your attention didn't I!!!:devil:). Sorry, I just couldn't resist. I actually chopped off the protruding edge of the right most tab on the back of the mount. It now slides further to the right and I have reasonable access to the Volume/Power knob. This also positions my phone so that the only dash area that is blocked is the right most hash marks of the fuel gauge.

    Motor on...

    Wait a second there. I was told by MAG that the iphone 5 didn't work with the Mini. Was I lied to?

    They cited because mine is a 2010. Haven't been able to get anything to work so far. But my old ipod has no audio output now. I believe it has gone kaput, and I don't have one of the fancy adapters for the lightening connector.

    How secure is it on bumpy roads, and does it fit an 04 cooper

    Very secure. I've no issues with my Nexus 7 tablet and my iphone 5. It'll fit in any car with a CD player, but it can also be wedged into different crevices (hey oh!). Works really well.

    Here's a pic if my Nexus 7.

    So I wonder if my cable is bad? I guess I would also need a 30 pin to lightening adapter. Damn I love my Sirius radio, but I would love to rock out to some of my music. Though I wonder is it would have interface issues now that I have updated to ios7?

    I need to find me a Mini stereo expert.
