Hello- I work at a large accessory (mainly truck) retailer out of Lexington Ky, I do general sales here. We carry Escort products, which it what caused my intrest to grow. There was a point, I thought a radar detector was the most over rated waste of money out there. After my 8500, I would never drive without one again.
Since Ive taken an intrest in these products, Ive started carrying some Escort custom installed product as well. The ZR shifters specificly. One will be going on my vehicle very soon.
I have a couple questions I wanted some input on... I've actualy read and searched on and off most of the day today so dont make me get the flame suite on my first post lol.
-As I said I currently have an 8500 escort, my concern is... i just tinted my windshield 35%. Anyone have any information about how the tint film affects performance/ range???
-From my understanding the 8500 and 9500i and ix all have the same detection ability. Is this correct? Im not bothered by the false alarms as Ive learned how to read the unit. So I dont see a need to upgrade... any thoughts?
-Im going to do a custom installed setup soon along with my glass mount. From what I can tell, since I already have the 8500 my best bet is the Zr4??
Thanks and sorry for the newb post. Just getting my stuff straight.
