Suggestions for suction camera mount

I need an inexpensive suction cup mount for a small Lumix HD cam. I'd primarily use it inside the car for canyon runs and track driving. There's a lot out there. Any recommendations?

Vibrations seem to the main issue. Some customers also seem to be getting knockoffs if you read the reviews.

I don't think there's anything than can be done about vibrations with type of mount. I considered a custom fab headrest mount, but the camera angles are limited and I doubt vibration is any better. As far a knockoff's; it seems it was limited to a specific seller. I'd get it through amazon directly for about $21 shipped.

Gripper 3025
http://www.filmtools.com/gripper-302...era-mount.html

It maybe a bit bigger than what you're looking for, but it's big and rock solid and you can be sure it won't come undone like a inexpensive one. I actually used it to mount a 7D DSLR outside the car at high speeds (which also happens to be a 335is ).

fun fact: the last video on their site is my video on a 335is... I have no affiliation with them, guess they found the video since I included the gripper name in the video.

That sucker is F'n HUGE! I'm have no doubt it's great, but that's way more serious than I'm looking for.

And before one of you 'tards says it: That's what she said.
