I am 20 and have a 09 Chrysler 300 that I bought last August. Most of my driving is from home to school on the weekends. My house is in Ashtabula and I go to school in Akron, which is about a hour and 15 minutes along I-90, 271, and Rt. 8. I have been running a V1 for almost a year now and prior to that I ran a 8500. I was taking summer classes for the first semester of the summer. My Calc II class was a 8 week summer class and the other two classes I had where 5 weeks. So after those 5 week ones where done, I would just drive from my home and back every day instead of staying at my apartment at school. The first week of July I drove to my class which was at 8:15 in the morning, then after class I headed back home. It was just a few minutes after 10 and I was headed North on RT. 8, traffic was quite light since the morning rush was over with. Between the University of Akron and the end of Cuyahoga Falls the speed limit is 55 and after Cuy Falls it goes back up to 65. During the day most everyone will be doing 65 in the second and third lane, so I was in the third lane passing a Jeep and the laser warning on the V1 went off and I immediately hit the breaks and I knew I was busted. I ended up getting clocked going 75 in a 55, the cop said that he only starts pulling people over if they are going 20+. Even though it was my first time being pulled over for anything, he was not going to let me off with a warning and I think having the V1 in the middle of my windshield did not help either. Right before he let me go, he asked me if I had a job. I replied no, but I have no idea why he would ask me that.
So after a $100 fine, I am here.
From what I have read the Laser Interceptor has the smallest head, which I like because it would mean minimal cutting of the grill on my 300. I measured and I would only have to trim the dividers and I would not have to cut any out to fit it in. The grill is chrome so by cutting out a divider it would be quite noticeable.
I am not as worried about the back but I figure I should put something there as well. I was wondering about getting a Blinder m27 for the rear because that would be cheaper then buying two additional LI heads for the rear and the Blinder should provide decent enough protection right? I plan to mount them under the lip that overhangs the plate bracket. One on each side of the overhang.
I noticed on the LI site that they have the version 6 and 7 units on sale that come with the 8.8 heads. Are the version 8 cpu's that much better?
Also, what about the V1 interfacing with the LI, I cannot find too much information about that on the internet.
What do you guys think of this solution?
Sorry for the really long post.
Thanks in advance,
