I got this mirror mount for the V1 and I think Twitch did too. It goes great with a hardwire.

Awesome Bueller, I'm going to be pulling the trigger on a V1 very soon

do you have any pics of what yours looks like with that mount? I'd love to see it!

Just buy it. You will like it. It is cheap and good quality. You can also use any other V1 mirror mount for a G35 or 350z. Same size mirror stem.

Imagine the front of the V1 flush with the onstar buttons and about 3/4" under it.

I just tried to get a pic with the camera phone and a flashlight but no luck. I will try to get a picture tomorrow.

thanks, i see some pictures on their website

my only concern is that I am a fairly tall guy and can't imagine having the Valentine sitting that low

a picture would be great!

It is in your view but not in the way. I used to have it to the driver's side of the mirror and it was more in the view. With it here you can easily reach up and push the volume button to mute. Enjoy.
