Hello everyone! The forum told me to make my first post here, so here I am. I wouldn't consider myself detector savvy, but both of my parents had one since I was a little kid, which wasn't all that long ago, so they both have the 8500 x50, and for all the times I have seen it save them, I decided I had to get one. When I turned 16 and bought my first car, the 9500ix was the first thing i bought. I worked great, until I tried a V1 from 2004..

Needless to say I am a hardcore, hardwired, V1 owner and am happy to be a part of the forum!
