    Just thought I would do a quick update on this..

    The original dock lasted all of 2 weeks before the glue holding it together gave up so I decided to make one out of a single piece of aluminium.

    First I machined the block to size and made the cut out for the phone to sit in as well as the little slot for the cable to poke through.



    Then machined the underside excess material away



    Finally I gave it a polish to mirror finish with the final result looking a million times better in my opinion.

    How do you find the phone for wobbling around when driving? I'd be scared that any bumps would make the phone wobble and damage the connector.

    However, it looks ace! And top marks for trying it.

    what an amazing ride this one is on, you should look at all the costs involved and see if its worth making them for profit, how many B6 and B7 owners would like one?

    Cheers for that mate, the phone wobbles a little but this is just a prototype so if I do knock some up I would make it a little smaller. I was more worried about scratching the rear of the phone so made it a little bigger.

    To be honest mate, I can only do them in spare time at work so would just stick them on eBay 99p start and see what I could get for them. As long as the cost of the lead is covered I would be happy.
