Hi davegrainger, yup the £23 quid that dashmount charge is outragious, but then its a pretty sturdy bit if kit.
You can get genuine "dashmounts" on
for about 1/2 of the dashmount price , even cheaper used.
Tip with the Clio mount, you can enlarge the vent mount hole using a tappered cutter and then mount it on the outer (airbag side) of the of the air vents rather than have it block the LHS vent by mounting it where dashmount suggest it should.
Depending on how well you enlarge the hole you may or may not require a small self tapper in the air vent to secure the mount so it does not rock back and forth.
Hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
