I purchased this Brodit mount from another supplier (since they had the matching iPhone mount in stock as well).
It looks discrete in the car and provides a good base for mounting pretty much anything you want, since the flat plate is drill-able plastic. The Brodit iPhone cradle I have attached to the plate is fantastic.
However, the small clip (at the narrow end of the bracket) failed when I removed/re-attached the bracket in order to adjust the cradle. Since then I've repaired the bracket clip with a metal part, and it is rock solid.
The bracket comes with sticky pads, which wasn't mentioned in the description from the other supplier (or in MX5Parts' product info).
I didn't use the sticky pads as I didn't wish to risk damaging the car's plastics. If I were to use them, I believe the clip may not have failed. It certainly won't survive being removed and re-fitted (for whatever reason) whether you use the pads or not.
As such, I'd say this is a great product providing you're happy to stick fairly heavy-duty double-sided tape to your car's dash.
I'd suggest that MX5Parts make it clear that adhesive must be used for a secure fit.
