    Default Where can I buy another case for my escort 8500?

    I cracked the cover to my 8500 today. The unit still works, but the cover had to be crazy glued to get it to stick to the windshield. Escort wants 25 dollars for a new case and they wont mail it, I have to send it in. Is there anywhere else I can pick a new case up, perhaps cheaper, as they can't cost more than 5 bucks at cost. Thanks in advance.

    If you're just going to keep the detector awhile, look around on ebay and friends for a busted 6800/7500/8500 and pop the covers off and go.

    Escort will send out a 7500 cover but they claim it wont fit the 8500. Also, I have had the detector for 5 years and I intedd to get another 2-3 years out of it, if it will last.

    The 7500 didn't have the little laser eye on the top that the 8500 does.
