Smile e60/e61 LCI In Dash Phone Mounts

I am looking for a solution for a phone mount. I am interested in two options below:

The KUDAŽ OEM Leather-Mount. (http://www.kudausa.com/bmw-5-e60-tou...ack-a1259.html)
and
The INDASH by PanaVise, also known as Mechunik mount on Bimmian.com. (https://bimmian.com/Accessories-for-...le-Dash-Mount/)

Does anyone have pictures of the INDASH mount installed in their e60/e61? I am wondering where it is mounted. The pictures on the web page indicate that its on the lower right side by the cubby box, but the pictures are of the prototype. I am wondering if they figured out a better placement for it.)

Also, what have you guys done for a phone mount solution? I am open to suggestions. I just don't want something with a suction cup. I would prefer an integrated, OEM feel.

I appreciate any feedback!

Rather than have something intrusive that sticks out like that, I opted for a magnetic mount like the one below.

Amazon Amazon


It securely clips on the vent, holds the phone well and is positioned perfectly for my needs. It installs and removes easily and I can swap it out for say, use in a rental car with ease.

Another option: https://www.brodit.com/product.html?id=853281 I placed it between vents instead, and can reach under bracket for buttons. Clears my line of sight to dash screen and can reach around to controls. Can screw on whichever mount you prefer.
