Two Phone Mount Choices in the Box
Designed just for your Mini
Magnets Work Surprisingly Well
We've long been skeptical of magnetic phone mounts, but it turns out they are pretty awesome. Many of the phones we tested were sufficiently magnetic on their own to just attach right to the mount. If not, we include two sizes of metal plates with adhesive backing. You could stick one to your phone, but if you use a case, it just goes between the case and the phone and works beautifully. While this magnetic mount is quick and easy to use, if you do not want to deal with the plates and your phone does not attach without them, the XXL Clip is in the box for you too.
Tight Corners and Large Phones are not Problem
The strong spring of the inclued clamshell holder can be more secure than the magnet mount if you are really putting it through it's paces. This is ideal for larger/heavier devices or bumpy driving conditions. The spring clip design means it’s still easy to use, simply pinch the back to open the holder. It opens up to 4 inches wide, so as long as your device is narrower than that, it will fit just fine. When removing your phone from the holder you should avoid letting the strong spring snap shut. Over time, this can cause the holder to break. If your holder breaks we will replace it, but this can be easily avoided.

Best Phone Mount Out There
Posted by Clubman Owner on 13th Mar 2017
This is the best car phone mount out there. I have tried ones that stick to the dash (they stick for a while, but are not very compatible with pebbled dash finishes), ones that fit in a cup holder (too much vibration) and finally landed on CravenSpeed. While I was hesitant to spend nearly $100 on a mount and also hesitant to take part of my dash apart, it was so worth it and the install was not difficult. This mount looks like it came with my 2017 Clubman. Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks also to CravenSpeed for the quick shipping!

I have been eyeing this mount for quite some time now. I've just been very hesitant to spend that much on a phone mount but I decided to just do it. Installation was easy with the right tools. The mount itself works great. I am very happy with it. I love that it displays my phone right above my steering wheel where it is very easy to see and close enough to reach. I was only planning to use the clamp but I really enjoy the magnet portion. Easy to put on and take off with one hand and it holds great. Also both fit my IPhone 7 Plus great even with a pretty hefty case on. Overall I definitely recommend this product. It also saved you about 60 bucks buying the original Mini phone mount.
Easy to install
Posted by Trisha on 14th Feb 2017
I figured out how to install the phone. Follow the directions and you are in like Flynn! My only problem is that the phone is a little too far left. If I want to enter information, I have to move the phone around. The magnets work and I am looking forward to using this installation to help me find my way in new neighborhoods.
Customer Care Proves Price
Posted by Lars Hindsley on 13th Feb 2017
Who doesn't question paying $75 for a phone mount? Not me. The exact precision in the design is flawless minimalism. Installed without an concerns. Been using it over a year and what... ? For my oversized phone the clamp broke in what may have been an awkward move on my part. Upon contacting customer service a YEAR AFTER THE SALE, I got a response on the weekend. With no argument or hassle. Even better I was offered an alternate mounting solution (just in case). I received both. Follow-up was on point. At every point I recalled my original purchase price and knew this was a true value that justified every penny spent. Beyond all this, the ability to move my phone continually with ease and stability has also been a big reminder that not all mounts meet all your needs. Until this one. Seriously. Buy it. You won't regret it.

Just bought the XXL mount for my Cooper (2nd Gen), and couldn't be happier. It holds my iPhone 6s perfectly, and doesn't obstruct my view of the road. The location is great for navigation, as I can just keep looking forward. Installation was easy, thanks to the video and paper instructions.

Bought one for my wife for Christmas this year. Installation was a snap, the video walks you right through it. Holds the iPhone 6 Plus steady and doesn't block any of the view out the windshield. So much better than a suction mount. Great product, thanks!
Works very well
Posted by Jeff on 16th Dec 2016
A bit pricey but if you are anything like me and get infuriated with taking the phone suction cup holder on and off your windshield it's great I felt so much pleasure in throwing my old phone holder away
If you have a Mini Countryman you must have this!
Posted by Darwin Rogers on 26th Nov 2016
This is costumed made for Mini! It's made perfect to have your phone in line of site with the road. I love it!
Posted by jc on 1st Nov 2016
I gave this item 4 stars because of 2 reasons: 1) its kinda expensive, and 2) one of the screws hits the dash. Other than that, this item looks very professional, great quality, and very small and hidden, and actually looks like it comes from Mini itself.
Easy to install
Posted by Chris on 10th Oct 2016
This product was easy to install and it looks terrific integrated into the dash. My iPhone 6s Plus fits perfectly and it's right where I need to see it, without covering up an air vent. I'm very pleased with this product!
Best service Best product for MINI
Posted by Thouson on 3rd Oct 2016
XXL Smartphone mount is the best phone mount solution for MINI lover. Little advice: I like the design of Scissor a bit compare with the grip arm, however it could not compliable with my iPhone 7+.
My XXL Smartphone mount was broken. Cravenspeed send me a new one for free on the second day (including free shipping). Excellent Service.
Posted by David on 2nd Oct 2016
Just what I wanted. Very easy to install and very useful. I recommend it
Best placement for mount!
Posted by Unknown on 19th Sep 2016
Tried several mounts with magnets, vent clips, and suction cups. This one was not only easy to install onto the back of the gauge cluster, but the placement is right where I wanted my phone to be at while driving. The clip has plenty of tension to ensure the phone does not fall out consider the stiff ride of my car. Highly recommended!
I Phone Holder For MINI
Posted by Unknown on 25th Aug 2016
Great Phone holder for MINI, wife loves it. Easy install, well built!
Posted by CHO on 12th Aug 2016
I used this almost one and a half year. It is strong and big enough to hold my Iphone 6S plus with thick case. A portion of the clip was broken after using 17 months. However, Cravenspeed sent me a replace part for free! What a wonderful product and service! I would like to give 10 stars. Highly recommended!
Posted by Thomas Renaudie on 10th Aug 2016
Nice looking, strong and easy to install it. Perfect as a Mini :)
Posted by Troy on 30th Jul 2016
Love this product, however it was a tight fit and the bolt rubbed against the dash. Many thanks to the support team at CravenSpeed that guided me thru bending the steel arm in a vice to get it not to rub. Love the placement of my phone for use with Waze. Not much you can do in a Roadster, but there is some vibration in the mount with the stiff suspension and road imperfections and is probably aggravated by the larger phone. Highly recommended.
Posted by Ryland on 19th Jul 2016
Installation was a breeze (the instructions provided online were very helpful), the mount fit perfectly in my Mini, and it does exactly what I need it to do (hold the phone). Well done!
cravenspeed mini xxl smartphone mount pro series
Posted by Unknown on 24th Jun 2016
I really like the location of where my phone sits. Its easier to get to and use when i need to. Much better than my previous setup. The only thing i don't like is that there is alot more vibration. The clamp works fine but a good magnet setup would be better for faster 1-handed use.
Excellent Mount but Needed Slight Modification
Posted by Mike Stolfa on 23rd Jun 2016
This is a great mount. Easy to install and easy to use (although I think I would prefer the scissor cradle). The minor issue I ran into was that the bolt and nut that hold the clamp arm to the rest of the mount stuck out a bit too far and caused a small scratch on the dash when the steering wheel was in the lowest position. I removed the mount and made a slight bend forward near where the clamp arm attaches. Reinstalled. Problem solved.
Great product, better service
Posted by Jeffery L Goetz on 17th Jun 2016
Have had this mount for a few years now, but it had a few minor issues. (Glue from grip pads was losing its place.) Emailed Cravenspeed and the sent me out a replacement next day. Like I said, unbeatable service.
Posted by Unknown on 10th Jun 2016
Looks just like it came from the factory!
Works as great as intended. Easiest installation.
Posted by Gabriel on 31st May 2016
I loved it. With the tiny space in the mini dashboard I could not find a suitable phone holder that wouldn't obstruct my view or be in a weird spot.
This works as well as the OEM and half the price or less, considering installation is so silly and quick yet they charge as if they had to take apart the whole car and rebuild it.
Very satisfied with this.
great great product
Posted by Unknown on 5th Apr 2016
Works perfectly and couldn't ask for better fit-make sure you hold onto the screws for the tach since you won't believe where they can fall and hide out
Haven't seen a better solution
Posted by nadine shaalan on 3rd Mar 2016
I wanted something that was unobtrusive and didn't threaten any of my surfaces with adhesive or new holes, and that didn't block the use of any vents or switches. This fits the bill for my iPhone 6 plus. I thought it might be fun to use as a dash-cam, but the vibration is a bit much... (might be my car more than the mount... the mount was easy to install and has no play in any of the connections.) It keeps the phone, whether in vertical or horizontal mode, perfectly in view. The only caution is that there is the temptation to interact with your phone more since it's so convenient. I use mine for GPS and music only. Promise.
Better than OEM
Posted by Gene on 23rd Feb 2016
I approached this cautiously since I generally like Mini/BMW quality. The installation truly took about 10 minutes, and only then because I didn't install the washers the first time. It looks absolutely stock. Having your phone in front of you for google map (or other non approved apps) is absolutely superb. With the clamshell there's a bit of a shape, but still a nice product!
Quick and Easy
Posted by Tommy Blackwell on 15th Jan 2016
I installed mine in about ten minutes. It holds my iPhone 6S+ perfectly. I could not have asked for better placement or a more solid mount.
Well made, innovative product
Posted by mk on 29th Dec 2015
Found out this product on forums and just installed it in my 5 day old Mini (F55). The product itself is well made and comes with all the fasteners and ciggy socket, which I did not use. Once installed, It looks like it came from the factory.
I installed the bracket without disconnecting the harness behind the speedometer as the connector did not want to come out easily. No problem.
My torx bits are NOT magnetized. When I re-installed the meter cluster back on the column, I lightly taped the screw to the driver just to hold the screw securely and once the screw started in the threads, I pull the driver out and removed the tape. That way, I did not drop the screws in the hard to reach areas. Hand tight and I was done.
I now need to find a sweet spot for my 6 plus. I do not like to have it block my view too much so I would bring it down and then the steering wheel blocks the view on the phone's screen. Got to try different positions and this product gives me so much freedom for that.
And I shall see how the clip, especially the rubber pads inside the clip, hold up in the real world but I have not seen any negative reports.
It's Craven, but it's not cool...
Posted by Wholly on 1st Dec 2015
The CravenSpeed mounts are amazing and the cool factor of the standard scissors mount can't be denied - and you pay for it with $10 more than the XXL but you have to admit that the plastic clamp just doesn't have the "pizzazz" of the smaller scissor mount. It looks cheap and common. (in fact, aside from being white it could be on my quadcopter controller)
Please consider a scissor style xXL or an SXL that adds just a quarter or even a half inch to the scissor arms and then you'd be able to get all these fancy new "big" 6+ phones a stylish seat like the rest of us in our mini.
Sturdy, Easy and Sooo Useful!
Posted by Manny on 21st Nov 2015
I bought this mount to have a place to securely store my iPhone 6+. I love it. It was fairly easy to install (once I found the torque screws I needed to remove in my mini). This baby holds my mobile nice and tight and gives me the flexibility to "Go 90" (as in degrees) with my device or stick to the normal horizontal mode.
What I appreciate most is that it's a solid, well made item that looks as though it came stock with the vehicle. Also... Kellen rocked! He gave me all the information I needed and facilitated a quick and easy transaction.
Definitely will be Craven Speeding for some additional Mini gear soon.
