I know that until the zr4 and 9500ci are released and tested there will be no definitive answer, but let's think about it hypothetically for a moment. Assuming the zr4 and 9500ci live up the the hype and turn out as good as some people say they will...which system is better, the 9500ci or the V1 combined with LI?
From what I have read so far:
pros for 9500ci
-great radar and laser protection
-newly released laser claimed to be addressed
-custom installed and well integrated into the car
-in case of any problems it should be easy to deal with Escort and the local place where it was bought
-about $600 more
-laser protection may or may not be as good as LI (depending on whether it lives up the hype or not)
pros for the V1/LI
-great radar sensitivity
-best laser protection
-$600 less than 9500ci
-not as reliable, reported problems, more difficult to warranty/repair since shipping to Croatia
-needs to be installed myself (I have another thread where I am trying to figure out if I am capable or not, I don't have much experience)
Is that all pretty accurate? What would you do?
