I see numerous complaints of the 9500ix case separating due to broken screw bosses.

Have you had this problem? How long have you had your 9500ix?

Also, since I have no warranty, if mine does this it will cost $60 + $15(each way)? shipping for a total of about ($75-$100) for this repair which seems to be a factory defect.

Does anyone know if Escort will just sell you the case half shells? That "should" be a MUCH less expensive way for someone to solve the problem if they don't mind doing it themselves.
