To enable speed recording and parking mode security a Nextbase 312GW Deluxe was installed into this Mini Cooper SD.
An extra 12volt supply was installed so the driver still had access to the cigarette socket.
The Nextbase has a battery function that enables up to 30 minutes recording whilst in parking mode and produces excellent quality footage both in the day and at night.
The install took approximately 1.5hours.
*Update*: This mini had a service not long after the Dashcam was installed at a "reputable" Uk garage and returned with damage to the front spoiler.
The garage denied all knowledge and strongly refuted the claims that they had damaged the vehicle.
However, after reviewing the dashcam footage it was clear to see that the damage had been caused by the garage.
After showing the manager the dashcam footage, he apologised profusely and gave a full refund on the service and MOT along with paying for the replacement front spoiler. A total cost of £381.18 avoided!
