I'm really missing the car mount that I had for my Droid X, was so nice just to pop it up there and use the navigation or call people easily... right now for my 8x, my cup holder is my car mount and not too happy with that.
So anyone know of a car mount that works well with the 8x?

I don't really like the big, bulky, expensive mounts that you can buy everywhere. I got two small black plastic adhesive-backed cable clips - the kind you might use when routing cables under your desk to keep them off the floor. You can get them at Office Depot. They are easy to cut with scissors so you can remove any parts you don't need. They are just big enough for the phone to sit securely on them, and lean back against the dashboard. The charger cord goes down between the clips, and its weight keeps the phone seated securely on the clips. It's a simple, cheap solution that looks good since you can hardly see them.

They make mounts for almost every car. They just release the 8x holders that attach to these mounts...they are a bit pricey, but build well and look nice.
There are a few different kinds from minimalistic, to charging mounts, with or without case & tilt and swivel mounts.

I had a side mount one, not the vent mount, for my iPhone 3gs and it was great. It was the basic no frills and it fit the phone perfectly. It was solid and felt like a part of the car (vw gti 2008).
I went with them because I read good reviews and everything live up to what they said.
I plan on buying one after the holidays, if I don't get it for Christmas. My gf know how much I enjoyed it on my old car with my old phone, so I hope my few hints don't go unnoticed...haha
I will write up a small review + picture when I buy/receive it. But from past experience, they are well worth the money, even the basic one without the charger/tilt & swivel
