Forgot about that, probably right.

I do both all the time and can even leave my iSkin Solo case on.

Yeah, true, and I've done that a few times, and have two different windshield mounts as well; but would prefer to, oh, you know, snap it in securely to an existing mechanism that's just waiting for an upgraded piece of plastic to hold the phone.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
