I have a blue 9500i build 4407. I also own an Sti of the same time of year (July 07) - has the 33.8 fix. I also have a ZR3 shifter that I am replacing with a LI soon.
My car is big and black (2003 Mercury Marauder) and has little in the way of reflective surfaces. I have laser shields on the plates.
I am wondering about what setup to use. I think I may sell the Sti and go with an ix (trade/upgrade the i) as my detector. After reading the tests, I don't think I want the ci unless it is offered without the zr4, which I have been told it will never be.
So my question is, as far as detection range how much difference is there between the ix and the ci? Has anyone tested this?
Also, I am either going to sell the zr3 on fleabay and get a quad LI or move the three zr3 heads to the rear and use a dual LI up front. Does anyone see a problem with mounting all 3 zr3 heads rear? The state patrol here does use rear shots from overpasses on a regular basis, often from close range.
So - which detector? And, can I use the zr3 all rear or do I just ditch it for a LI quad? I obviously am considering the $ difference here. I don't see any used zr3s for sale so I don't know what it would go for - probably not more than $150.
