I called Escort the other day with intentions to buy a Bel or an Escort installed unit for my new Audi TT. All I got was some evasive answers about how they share some components, but they aren't the same.
So the next question I asked was 'which one is better then?'. And the funniest part is they said 'oh, the Escort might be a little better than the Bel.'
I tried to find out what the differences are and they were completely evasive.
I would like to know a clear answer to what the differences are. Since they won't even tell me, I presume they're probably almost identical ... and they wanted to help eachother target the V1 market by joining up
... but there is goodwill associated both with Escort and with Bel, so they wanted to retain that value.
Personally, I wish they'd cut the bull and answer me though.
Right now I drive with a V1 + Blinder, but I was looking at the SRX for my new toy ...
So .. are they the same or what?
