Hey guys, this is my first real post here. I've been searching for advice and see that LI is recommended by a number of people, but I'm having a tough time spending that kind of money. I've also seen the blinder and laser mask recommendend as budget systems.
So just looking for advice specific to my car and installation. I have an '99 Audi A6 with front plate and been running a ZR3 for the last 5 years which I've had hooked up through an Escort 8500 (now x50). I really like this clean set up. The only thing visible is the 8500 mounted up by my rearview and the jammer defeat button on my dash by the speedo. It seemed to work fine and gave me enough time to slow down and turn off the jammer. I rarely go over 85 mph.
Lately the ZR3's been giving me regular alerts once per minute after it's been powered up for about 10min. I was going to send it in for repair or replace it with a ZR4 until I started browsing this site.
I've attached a photo of what my front grill looks like (my car is red, but it wasn't around for me to photo). The yellow retangles are where the ZR3 sensors are installed...this is where they fit easiest w/o cutting my grill. I also have the rear lic. plate mounted sensor. I've only run across one speed trap where they were shooting from the rear, but it does happen.
I live OR and another post on this site indicates the following detectors are used in my area: Stalker, LTI Marksman 20/20, LTI Ultralyte, Pro Laser II, Pro Laser III, Prolite. Some other info of note: I have headlight washers, so veil G4 coating doesn't work very well, but I plan to use it on my lic plate covers, fog lights and maybe the chrome rim and Audi rings on my grill.
So which system do you recommend? Any suggestion on sensor placement would be greatly appreciated as well. I've attach photos showing examples of my audi's front and rear design. Thanks in advance for any input.
