Very nice mount, materials feel very solid.
Only complaint is that the mounting screws feel slightly too big. To get them into the holes in the back of the tachometer casing, it feels like you will either strip out the threaded holes or crack the casing. Even after getting them in, I have a small suspicion that they might be coming slightly loose. If I had to do it again, I would buy the mount, but I would use some threadlock on the mounting screws so that I didn't have to worry about them ever again.

Easy to install on my 2010 mini and works great with the iPhone 5.

Considering the price, I would have hoped they would have learned from previous issues and sent the right size screws. After I realized they were the wrong diameter I had to reassemble the tach - big waste of time.

Easy install, works with iPhone 4, which I will be upgrading to iPhone 5/5S, so this universal mount was ideal. Good position for viewing.

The longer screws, that come in the box with the Fixie mount seem to be too long for my british mini cooper 2007. I tightened them, but still there were 3-4 mm left, so the fixie wasn't actually fixed and was all rocky. I didn't want to harm my mini trying to tighten the screws more, so I had to spend more money at DIY buying some washers and now it is okay.
I love the way it looks, those sucker mounts look really miserable, so I didn't want to spoil my beautiful car with something ugly. The fixie holds my iPhone5 very well in the case.

This mount works exactly as advertised. It was easy to install. Works beautifully with my iphone 5. Perhaps due to the case I use with the phone, I have had no problems with the volume control.
For me using the phone in my new MINI clubman was cumbersome. I could not seem to find a good place to keep the phone, particularly when wanting to use the navigational system that I have on the phone. This placement in this cradle solves the problem. Easy to make calls, use map, play music. No obstruction of view of the road.

I love the "heads up style" way it displays my iphone 4S. It's sturdier than I expected, easy to install, even though I did not get the more expensive modular pieces, I can still rotate the iphone long ways or vertical or to any angle I want. The only glitch is that the wrong size screws were sent along with the shipment. They were too big and there was no way they they were going to fit into the existing holes in my mini tachometer. I just swapped them out with screws that I had in my hardware collection.

I got the Fixie Scissor mount to replace the Fixie iPhone mount, because there is a little plastic tab on the iPhone mount that tends to be fragile. I found that I could keep my existing mount arm, and just swap the Scissor cradle for the iPhone cradle. You need a 5/32" hex key and a 7/16" socket for this job. There is a soft round pad in the center of the cradle that covers the head of the hex fastener. Carefully peel this pad part way off to expose the hex head. I used the tip of an Xacto knife, but a small flathead screwdriver might also work. By not peeling it all the way off, you can keep almost half of it glued in place. Then it's a simple matter to remove the fastener and swap the cradles.

Great product, but could be made better. Perfect location for safety, while driving. Immediately, it was realized that the one rubber coated peg was interfearing with the two phone volume buttons and the silent switch on the side of the iPhone5. This led to having to slide the phone off center which resulted in another problem...All four pegs do not hold the same pressure due to the use of one spring. I noticed that this was causing the overall gripping action to be less on the end opposite the spring. I added another spring type device to the other end and now there is no problem. One last minor thing (major to me) was the spring is silver and so is the lock nut that holds the assembly together. I took the time to make them black, which erased this cheap look - in my opinion.

The mount works. I have a larger HTC Evo3D, and it fits in the x-bracket wonderfully. My older 4.3" Garmin fits as well (barely, but it fits).
It grips the phone nicely and positions it in a perfect spot above the vent. Your phone won't be centered, though, as your volume rockers are probably where you'd logically put it in the bracket. But it works.
The x-bracket is such a great design that I've bought second universal bracket that I'm going to incorporate into a custom mount for my Z3 M Coupe!
