Has anyone considered mounting a dashcam on their cla45? with the large housing the mirror is mounted to, has anyone thought about a good place to mount a dashcam?

Yes, I am looking to mount a dashcam on the AMG due to the horrible drivers here in Vancouver. There seems to be a good place behind the rear view mirror under the plastic thing to attach a dashcam.


Anyone have a suggestion for a good dashcam now? =)

i have a ITB-100HD, which is pretty good, but if i can't get it to fit, thinking of a finevue CR-500HD which is a bit smaller

Thought I would revive this thread to share where I ended up putting my dash cam.

The windshield was too obtrusive and showed way too much from outside.
I decided to mount the dashcam with velcro to the actual plastic housing just below the rearview mirror.
It turned out great. The camera itself gets a perfect view of the road. The camera is out of my field of view. I can just make out the very bottom below the rearview mirror and from outside the car it's a lot less noticeable.
