I thought it might be the charging, but it remains hot even when it shows 100% charged. Maybe there is an issue with the charger not operating properly.

iPhone heating up

I would be worried about the 19 inch wheels cracking. We went with 18 on our Gt just for this reason. On our z4, the 19 inch wheels have a serious cracking problem. The 18s do not. While it has...

Thanks for the info. The photo is a shot of what is in our GT already. I would just like a lip to keep the phone from sliding off the ledge. It does not look like the ledge would come out.
