Discreet Dash Cam Suggestions?

I have been looking for decent discreet dash cam for my 2014 SLK350. I really like the design of Aerowerkzís dash cams but they donít make anything for SLKs. Any recommendations?

i've been pretty happy with the rexing v1 (not entirely sure of the model off the top of my head). the foward facing unit's barely noticeable, the rear pretty unobtrusive as mounted in my w210. image quality's excellent during the day but, less so at night...

paid about $120 from my local best buy. i went through 2-3 cheap chinese units ($30-40) on my way to this one, they all failed within a few months... i'm told cameras with capacitors as a backup power source are more durable as lithium batteries can't take the heat.

you might check with a local auto electronics (stereo) installer, they wouldn't want to install something that comes back.

I donít mind paying more for a decent dash cam :P Thanks so much for your input. Super helpful! And Iíll avoid cameras with capacitors.

actually, it's the other way 'round. the capacitors are less heat sensitive than lithium batteries.
