Anyone have something that makes it nice and snug inside the holder?

I tried one on eBay and it was freaking horrible. Although it was open on both ends it held it pretty tight while it lasted- until the hot summer sun practically melted the housing off the suction cup.

I don't want an EZ shadow and I don't want to put double-sided tape on my windshield. Matter-of-fact if anybody wants my EZ shadow they can have it for five dollars if local

Any ideas folks?
What are ya using?

I use one from here http://www.stylishpass.com/ . It looks pretty good because it's a snug fit all leather case. I put the single piece of velcro behind the navi hump on the flat part of my L-7 speaker and have no trouble with it being read at toll booths. Then I just take it off when I don't need it.

I spray painted mine black and stuck it behind mirror on velcro. Works perfectly and is invisible from the outside.

Yea, those all involve sticking double sided tape on the windshield or dash. Maybe that's the best way

Hey wrickem! Ok so these look pretty slick!
Need an opinion (anyone else feel free to chime in). Got a black sapphire metallic coupe with coral red interior.
I am torn between the black leather one with the red stitching or the red leather one- which one would you choose? I suppose the red leather one would look funky on the windshield

Why put it on the windshield? I would put it on the dash by the middle speaker and I would get the black with red stitching.

I agree with this being a really nice choice 100% .

I only used 1/2 of the one velcro strip (order black) and you can't even see it behind the hump. remember it's there though otherwise your microfiber cloth will snag on it.

Are you in NY? if your plate is registered you don't even need to keep the ezpass out it registers the plate as well. Not sure about other states but NY NJ.

I was also told that if you have lots of problem with your ezpass you can get a license plate mount. Supposedly they have lots of problems with European cars due to all the electronics.

Basically run through with the plate about 100 times and they will give you a license plate mount which you can put behind your kidney grill

I like Joe's idea about the mount behind the grille, but for now I went with the black with red stitching wrickem
I'm in NJ - is it possible we don't even need to use our EZ passes?
I am registered with automatic link to my bank account....hmmm......

Call up ezpass and ask what happens if I forget my transponder in my other car will I have to pay a fine? When ezpass reads my plate.

Okay got the stylish pass- looks fantastic with the black leather and red stitching
I am still debating where the hell to mount the damn thing
I can go onto the back of the mirror but there seems to be some photo sensor there...
Thought about the center speaker but didn't want to block the sound.
Can't put it in the ash tray area, it won't register (learned that the hard way last night )
I could put it on the windshield, but....eh....
