My silly question of the day:
Do strong magnets in such close proximity to a phone interfere with the phone at all?
Yes, they can stop wireless charging and cause issues with NFC. Mounting the magnets in/on a case can render it useless for some day to day applications (NFC/Wireless charging) in my experience.

Hi,
Just pop off the door rubbers, wrap the cable in some felted tape then tuck it in from the front to the back and put the rubber back up. once the cables at the back pop off the rear boot cable grommet on the car side, remove the boots top plastic covering and poke the cable through from the car , through the grommet and into the boot lid. Its easier than it sounds but just be careful popping off the panel at the top of the boot lid as that rear glass will be a nightmare to replace.
Mate you hint with the cabletie worked like a charm!

But I might move it behind the mirror onto the black box, not sure yet...

and the door entry needs to be better, routed it below the mat and plugged it into one of the ports in the middle (when wireless carplay comes 🤞, it will be plugged there)

And the back camera is missing, will do so at some other day...

We didn't have any fishing line so used a bit of dental floss! Gently placed it behind each letter in turn and used a sawing motion. Plays havoc with your fingers but with patience works well. the letters are held in place by sticky pads part of which is left behind. these can be carefully pulled away with your fingers which just leaves a sticky glue residue. I gave these a wipe with a Gorilla Wipe and it cleans off easily, then rinsed with water. Takes about 10-15 minutes.
I didn't want to use the 'just pull and hope' method as I didn't want the letters to break in case we want to reapply them or sell the car.
Will this effect the price of the vehicle when it comes to end of financial agreement?

In 3 yrs time, when someone's looking for a very collectable Project 45, they wont want one with bits missing

We bought ourselves, but in short, I don't think so. The letters came off intact and are reusable. They are stuck to the car with sticky pads so with a little effort the letters could be used to create templates for replacement pads to be cut from a sheet. Quick Ebay search offers loads of choice.

Off with those letters then! 👍🏽

Lurker here. My i5 is a few weeks away. I was wondering, is it possible to build in ambient lighting for models that don't have it?
I mean there are some aftermarket eBay options, but I would prefer it if it looked integrated.

Actually the steering wheel does have an H
The 4 dots are the letter H in Morse Code!
It's a small fun Easter Egg.

On my to-do list when I get the car:
  • Logo wrapping
  • Ambient lighting (I have non lighting model)
  • Display bezels from white to dark grey/black, matching cars interior -> Does anyone have a solution for this? Maybe pre-made stickers/wraps?

Logo Wrapping is fairly easy, you can get those outershells, I really like how mine looked like afterwards...

On the display bezels, I heard one saying its coated, and therefore plastic wrapes as an example would not work ... :(

There is a link in this forum for eBay. You cover the logo from silver to black. The rest you get on AliExpress. I did not find any laser cut foils. I calculated the price for wrap but would be cheaper to repaint entire car.
