Has anyone tried CNCing a hole in the lid of their Mac mini and replacing said hole with plexiglass? In the hopes of improved bluetooth connectivity ? Or do you think the bluetooth issues that are often mentioned relate to poor quality control of certain components?

Sounds like desperate measures, but I well understand it.

My Mini has really ****** BlueTooth.
Solutions I have tried: I am not using any USB-A ports, WiFi off, the Mini is standing on its side, bottom facing me on my desk…

While this has improved BT slightly it is still really bad.

I don't think you're going to improve the Mini's bt performance by drilling holes into it...

I've abandoned the bluetooth mouse I'd been using with my M1 mini and am using a wired mouse. The bluetooth keyboard continues to work tho
