I am able to fit my note 9 with a case. Should fit the Note 10 no problem, but not sure about the 10+.

Note 10 Plus is 6.39 x 3.04 x 0.31 in - Note 9 is 6.37 x 3.01 x 0.35 in

The being said it's such a small amount, I think without a case I'll be fine, might put a small case on and hope for the best. Can always take off when i charge.

How does the Note 9 fit? No one else does. What am I missing?

Is it easy to revert back to stock if my phone doesn't fit?

I assumed the wireless charging was in the front console near the cupholders like in the newer BMW.

I was watching the MotoManTV review of the M2c and I see now why he was struggling to get the wireless charging to work.

Anyway, is it easy to remove the wireless part from inside the armrest? I rather use the space for other stuff.

We're talking phones fitting after installing the new slide piece, not using the stock slider.

I was able to break the cradle during installation. The cables were tight inside the cradle and I broke off one of the leads for the coax. I can solder it back, but I don't want to do that in the car. I have seen plenty of pictures of the cradle and cables so I can see that the sockets aren't far away, but I have seen conflicting posts and cannot tell if the sockets are in front of the shifter or behind the console, by the rear heat vent, I assumed they were in the front of the car (based on the way the cable comes out of the cradle, so I removed the cover and idrive controller (right of the shifter. I loosened the shifting boot (6MT) and removed the button panel to the left of the shifter. I found 2 Torx screws, which I removed, but I cannot get anything to budge. (Many years ago, I learned that if you f**k something up, it is best not to make it worse trying to fix your mistake. Can anyone provide any guidance before I am forced to throw myself on the mercy of the dealer and listen to the lecture on the dangers of weekend mechanics

the wireless charger is a total POS... it overheats the phone while charging at a dead slow speed... this results in extremely slow and unresponsive performance

3. You can honestly pop it back in place and it will hold a larger phone just fine, or install the 3D printed piece and put together

This took me about 5 min
Hi, how were you able to pop the wireless charger out in your X2 from the front? Tried doing so, but seems like there's a clip keeping it from popping out from the front. Thanks!

Tried my iPhone Xr in a slim case in a M2C at the dealer yesterday.

Fit great, blue light came on.
