The AiM MXG had menu buttons located on the side of the dash, which would have been inaccessible given the flush mounting to the fascia. Luckily, AiM released a button relocation kit specifically for this purpose and could be plugged into generic momentary buttons. I purchased these subtle, metal momentary buttons and asked Toby to install them adjacent to the menu indicators.
Here is the back of the fascia with the mounting brackets affixed:

Needless to say, I’m excited to finally have my hands on these pieces. I have a fair share of work ahead of me to get everything installed.
