I currently have a 8500 x50 (Blue). I wouldn't say I LOVE it, but it's ok. The range is not what it's said to be and the side detection is pretty bad, like LEO's coming from my left or right, when I'm driving. But, I'm dealing with it. Anyways, I love blue and since the NEW blue 9500i came out, I REALLY WANT it! Because of the problems with the original 9500i (Red), I am alittle hesitant to spend $500!
1.) Can anyone tell me if they've fixed this problem, and how the blue (new), is different from the original 9500i (red). I'm assuming with the new blue models they have a revision or something to them that the red doesn't? Is it better? Have they addressed the ramp-on and lockout issues?
2.) Is www.escortradar.com the only place selling them right now?
3.) How long would you say the Blue 9500i will be Escort's top model? I always want the latest and greatest, and I don't want to spend $500 and have Escort come out with a new one really soon!
