This page is to serve as a how-to/help page for the 3d Printed Phone Mounts in my Etsy shop. Please feel free to add a comment or contact me if you have questions prior to purchase, or if you need assistance with installation.
BMW i3 Phone Mount
This mount is designed to fit either on the right or left of the dash. If you didn’t know, there is a lighter plug under the dash, this mount will go just to the right or left of that plug, making this the ideal mount for using with a chargable base (not included).
- The Phone mount comes pre-installed with two pieces of 3M VHB (very high bond) tape. The tape is optional, especially the under dash piece, but provides protection to your under dash area from scratches.
- If you choose to use the 3M VHB tape, please make sure you’ve tested your mount in the proper place and side before pulling the red off of the tape.
- 3M VHB tape can be easily removed if you wish to remove the mount, however it will not be reuseable (you’ll need to provide your own should you move it).
- Removing 3M VHB tape can be done with your fingers and all residue should come off.

Q: Are the phone mounts resistent to heat?
A: Mounts are printed with PETG. The glass transition temperature of PETG ranges from 80-95°C (185-194°F). If you live in an outdoor area where temperatures are frequently above 40°c (104°F), then you may experience softening/warping. If you are in a warm climate, these may not be for you, however the VHB tape (not on all models) should help them stay in place even if warping occurs.
