Waylens camera mirror mounted on M550i

I got the Waylens camera via Kickstarter years ago, really liked the picture quality and functionalities. Only thing I don't like is the suction cup mount. In summer it will fall off almost every day (I have to park outside at work). Others have suggested to glue the mount to windshield, didn't want to do that. Until recently I found BlendMount started selling Waylens custom mirror mount. It's expensive ($185) for what it is, but there's no alternative afaik.

This is the link to the BlendMount option specifically for G30 mirror type.

I also direct wired the camera to the fuse box underneath the glovebox, thanks to the detailed write-up by a forum member (can't remember the ID as I only saved the link to the external site).

A quick 0-60 video captured using Waylens last year. Not a good attempt by any means but still blown away by the power of M550i.
