I have an 8500 that is approx 5 years old and I would like to upgrade. I tried the V1 but it just wasn't for me. I was originally planning on a 9500ix and a Blinder M27 jammer. Then I started looking at the 9500ci. I love the integrated install but I'm worried about the ZR4 jammer. It always seems to be at the bottom of the tests. I also have a few other questions/concerns.
1.) As stated above does the ZR4 really suck as bad as everyone says? Can it be removed and sold?
2.) How hard is the install? I've done stereo installs in the past and just recently modded my 2005 M3 ZCP to add the steering wheel controls back.
3.) Does the 9500ci have all the same features as the 9500ix? From my research I believe it does but just want to verify.
For the record I have a 2005 BMW M3 in Alpine white. No front plate. My plan was to install the radar and jammer heads in the front "air dam" near the top. Since it's a white car I don't really want to use the Veil on the headlights. I'm concerned it will look like crap. With a white car am I fighting a losing battle?
