The micro USB's fit fine and the lid closes without any issues!

I purchased a self-closing, sunglass holder, meant for a BMW X1, X3, & X5 series, from eBay for around $15. It replaces the driver roof handle, which my wife never uses (neither do I). I looked for a Mercedes GLA version, assuming it would fit perfectly, but at that time (November 2019), I only found them in tan color, and I needed black. I wasn't sure the BMW type would fit but it was cheap enough that I just ordered it. The feet have some adjustment rooms nd can slide right and left slightly, so it did fit, and it works well. The feet on the BMW holder are slightly smaller that the cut-outs in the roof panel, so, when you open up the holder and look inside, you can see a small area of the metal roof structure. I didn't care about the visible area, since it is fully hidden when closed. The BMW type were available in three colors (Black, Grey, Tan).

Attached are pics of the unit. I will try to snap some actual installed photos and upload them tomorrow.

I snapped some photos even though its dark out. Due to the flash, the color difference between the headliner and sunglass holder looks very drastic....that said, even the OEM parts (headliner, sunroof cover, B-pillar) look like different shades of black. In the normal daylight, all the black parts look black and OEM. I'll take more photos tomorrow.
You can see where the mounting feet are slightly smaller than the feet on the OEM handle and there is a gap in coverage.

The roof line is already so low that I hit my head getting in/out if I'm not careful. With sunglasses in the holder, doesn't that take away even more precious headroom?

It tucks itself into the void where the handle normally is...I didn’t notice that it takes up more space and I’m 6’-1”...but it is thicker than the handle, but I would guess you hit your head on the lower part of the roof where the door frame meets it, so I doubt you would hit your head on this.

I paid extra attention to the handle, yesterday, and I definitely think this would cause issues, for me. I agree my head is hitting the A pillar, but once I'm in the car the handle is *right* there, and any additional protrusion would make me feel more claustrophobic and if I lean forward I think it would impact my head -- especially worrisome in a rear-end collision.
