    Took me a while to install these, replacing the original sills which felt flimsy. Broke a couple of trim panel clips but ordered some from Amazon on the way to make it more secure.

    Also installed Blackvue 750s directly behind rear view mirror. Fits quite well IMHO. The only thing left to do is to run the wire to the rear cam. The mount solves the issue of using 3M adhesive onto the windshield. It is far enough from the windshield not to get any reflective glare.

    Bought these from Tesland.nl, can't say enough about great customer service from Herbert.

    Hi,

    I have one of these Blackvue mounts on the way and I like to be prepared. What’s the process of removing the shield already in place on the mirror? Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Shane.

    Pull them straight down, the cowl will slide off. Make sure you insert BlackVue into the mount first before attaching it back to the rear mirror. I found the fit to be very tight and snug.

    Nice job. Where do you tap into power for the door sills?

    The LED lights above the front footwells. Each sill comes with an extra connector and you can plug straight in

    As is almost always the case there are old threads on this topic. Here's a link to one. This is about carbon fiber lighted sills.
