    And which one do work with the 2018 Mini?

    So far, I've found the Samsung M471A4G43MB1-CTD, which has the same specs as the 2*16GB kit that Crucial sells specifically for the 2018 Mini.

    Crucial doesn't seem to sell a 32GB module at this time, neither does Kingston.

    Any others?

    Just order OWC modules either from OWC or from B&H.

    I installed the Samsung M471A4G43MB1 from Amazon. They're $15 cheaper now than when I bought them two weeks ago.

    In case it escaped your attention: I'm in Europe. I won't order from the US.

    Thanks.
    2*32GB would be about 300 CHF incl Tax here.
    That's 1/3 of what Apple asks as upgrade price.

    The most annoying part, and it's glossed over in everything I saw, is how difficult the little rubber bumpers on the actual memory modules are to replace. Everything else is rather simple, though reattaching the antenna cable the second time (the first time I didn't seat both modules well) was a little harrowing.

    I purchased Timetec (SKHynix) 32gb kit for 160CAD (100USD) from amazon. its their certified apple kit. I tested it before installing it in the mini. put it in a laptop ran ram tests, works great in mini and cheap :D
