    Radar

    Yes, i know we discuss this every so often..

    My friend recently got a ticket for 13 over (with me in the car) and I have decided it is time to buy a radar/laser detector. I am currently looking at

    BEL 975R - http://www.radar-detectors.com/produ...onics/975r.asp

    -and-

    Valentine One -
    http://www.valentine1.com/

    Thoughts?

    Looks like BEL has better models available:

    This one looks much better:

    according to:

    and it's cheaper.

    yes, the reason i like that particular bell model is that it is very covert and does not require you to have a very obvious black box in your windsheild

    they don't help when you get a complete B.S. ticket like "exhibition of speed" (supposedly i accelerated too quickly) like i did about an hour ago.

    I run a BEL though, great devices.

    Get the Valentine One.

    I have one and I love it. I am going to mount the remote display in my rearview mirror.

    It ROCKS! It is pricey at $400 but worth every penny. Front and rear radar as well.

    yea, it is illegal, but hell i cant stand when cops give out ****ty tickets. so... it is a tough choice between stealth and the generally best unit (valentine).. if i get the remote display for the valentine, how well do you think i could mount it as to not be seen from outside the vehical?

    I dont have the link's to hand, but if you search the empeg forum (www.empegbbs.com) you will find a rear view mirror mod for the Valentine One which is invisible when off. You just see the mirror with NO cut outs.
