Infrared Windshield & EZ-Pass

Just purchased a 2006 750i and it has an infrared windshield (not sure if this glass is standard on all '06 750's or not).

Car is registered in SC, so don't need front license plate and plan on replacing the license plate holder with the straight-across bumper strip. But, I was wondering with this windshield whether the EZ-Pass (or equivalent) transponder is affected by the infrared glass?

TIA,

There are hotspots on the windshield for the toll tags and EZ pass. to the immediate right and left of the rear view mirror you will see an indent on the windshield big enough for your pass. That's where there is no infrared or whatever is in the glass.

Ken - There is also a clear area directly ahead of the "valley" between the two intrument panel humps on the the top of the dashboard. This is an ideal location for a radar detector.
