Well, I sold my old 8500 last week and finally decided on the 9500 over the V1. I ordered the blue LED model since Autoanything.com had them both priced at $449.99. Ive purchased many things from them in the past and have always been happy with their fast service, plus the free shipping and no sales tax helps alot! I cant wait for it to get here! Ive realy felt naked without a detector the last week!
