I sent my V1 back yesterday (see V1 forum for details, le'ts not reapeat why here) and I'm going to get a 9500ix or 9500ci.
My concern on the 9500ci is how long it will last being exposed to the elements.
My RD's have lasted a good 5 or more years (always escorts) over the past 20 years. Usually they have 3 lives, my car, wifes car, and daughters car. It would have to last a total of 5 years to justify this kind of $$$.
I like the option of taking the 9500ix with me but I have one in my wifes car I can borrow if I go on a trip or something.
So I realize some folks have mounted the Radar receiver behind windshield for performance. I'd love to see some photo's of that. I looked, but could not find any. I know happy$ has it installed inside.
How long will the laser heads last? How expensive are they to replace?
The 3 year warranty is insignificant in my opinion. That's about when stuff will start to fail.
Any one mount laser heads behind windshield
Any way to extend their life?
I sure wish the redline had a GPS in it.
