Howdy. Great forum, wish I had been reading this in 2004-2005.
I am an Army officer who is married to another Army officer. We live in Korea right now but soon I will live in North Carolina (Fort Bragg) and she will live in Washington, DC (Pentagon). I recently bought a black 2009 VW GTI, and I expect to be driving from Fort Bragg to Washington and back at least once a month. She has our daughter and I will probably be doing most of the driving; asking her to drive 5-6hrs one way with a two-year old, and then go back, is a little much.
I have had tickets in the past, but I have lived in Korea for the past 2.5 years, so none since 2006. The last one in 2006 I beat in court, so I haven't had one on my record since 2004. I expect to have a mostly clean record in the future.
I know all kinds of stuff is illegal in VA, but I will be driving through VA to DC and I am NOT, say again, NOT going to drive 65mph for 6hrs just to make the cops happy.
I'm planning on getting a radar detector, laser jammer, VEIL, a scanner, the whole works. I am looking to get the best rig I can, mounted professionally in my VW GTI, and I am open to all suggestions on what I can get. My budget will be around $2,000-$3,000.
Any suggestions should be emailed to clamchowdah22 at hotmail dot com. Thanks.
