MACH V Accessport Vent Dock Mount 2002-2007 WRX / 2004-2007 STI
This one has been a long time coming. Mach V had been looking at mounts for Accessports, and couldn't find quite what they wanted. Some of their favorites were ones that put the Accessport in the dash vent position, but those are mostly 3D-printed and the quality of the ones we tried ranged from half-baked to...terrible. They saw magnets that didn't hold, mounts that melted from normal interior heat, and mounts that simply fell apart. Oh, and most of them look like they were built by your cousin Billy at the kitchen table.
So they decided to do something about it. MACH V designed an injection-molded Accessport mount. Injection molding is a very costly process because you have to build a metal mold. Most companies wouldn't even bother. But hey, you guys are worth it.
The result is a mount that everyone can be proud of. It's made from the very same UV-stabilized plastic as the original vent that goes in the dash, so it will not melt or bleach from the sun. The molded surface of the part is smooth and free of 3D-printing worm trails. It looks just like an OEM trim piece, because it is made in the same way as the stock part. Unlike many of those other mounts, it snaps neatly in to the existing defroster duct so the defroster vent still works. And yes, Mach V did test that, using thermocouples to measure the heated air output.
