Rennline Phone Mount, gap with full leather interior

Finally received phone mount. Rennline lost the package (it didn't get picked up by DHL 19 days after receiving tracking info) and ignored refund request multiple times. After opening PayPal claim got the refund and ordered from Pelican Parts, Ecs tuning was out of stock.

Got it installed and here we go, beautiful gap. I've seen few users complaining about it and it seems like a leather is to blame. All those with regular dash don't have a gap because it's soft and it gets pushed in.

Didn't wanna send it back so I started trimming the mount. Piece closest to the bottom hole was mostly in the way. Ended up cutting it off completely and trimmed few millimeters around the lineup hole where plastic piece from the back of the radio unit goes in. In the end gap is still present, at least this time for the thickness of the mount. Mount is sturdy, holds the phone in place and can't tell it's missing bottom piece. Upper bolt and lineup hole keeps it in place.

This was done on 2018 M4. Ambient lighting seems to be just a bit more illuminated around climate control due to the gap.

Pictures are in the order with the last one as a final result. In test fit pictures it may look like there's no need for cutting but when mount gets placed into the back of climate control the whole thing shifts 2mm towards the passenger side.
