E-tron will be the first car with built in transponder
 
When the Audi E-Tron crossover arrives next year, it will be the first model from the brand to feature an electronic toll payment transponder integrated directly into the rear view mirror. This will be standard for all models and will allow drivers to access select toll roads in the U.S ans Canada, without the need to mount unsightly transponders on the dash or windscreen. The built in module can be controlled directly through Audi's Multi Media Interface system.

I wish it was an option along with Sirius satellite. Don't want either but have Sirius in both my cars. Never subscribed because all of the horror stories with billing.

It'll be nice not having to place those god awful looking velcro strips on the windshield of a brand new car for a change. While its a minor inconvenience, fumbling to pull it out of the glovebox in a hurry is always a hassle.

We know that now more than ever, people are willing to pay extra for convenience. I'm all for anything that helps to reduce clutter inside my car.

I used to work in a dealership and on road tests they were annoying, some customers wouldn't even mount them properly but instead leave it sitting on the dash.
Everytime a tech stepped in and saw it, you saw a dreadful look on their face!
