    Default Ok it's time to get something.....need advice

    First question:
    Blinder or Laser Interceptor? Blinder is cheaper than LI but is the LI worth the price? Would get the dual heads and standard version.

    Second question:
    I need some advice on "placement." Here is some shots of the front of my car (click to make bigger) Please also note that the middle section will have the 4 audi rings attached so that's out but I doubt any-one would suggest the middle for 2 jammer heads.

    Valley Stream?! Wow, I'm in Franklin Square. Hello Neighbor.

    I know you don't want to hear this but I would put 2 heads in the grill, right on the bottom corners, above the plate.

    Yes LI is definitely worth the extra money.
    Lowest part of the upper grille with the sensors closest to the headlights.

    Going to be getting the laser interceptor and valentine one combo very soon.
    The grille is actually one piece, so I guess some cutting will need to be done after all. Damn.

    Not necessarily. Wait until you see the size of the LI heads. They're pretty damn small.

    But I doubt they would fit in the little holes of the honeycomb styled grille to be honest. Would have to do some trimming, either way, i'll just wait and see

    No but I bet they'll sit on that little ledge above the license plate

    Valley Stream here too, V1 here. I would recommend the LI's. It has more reputation, and it would be worth the extra money to get the absolute best and driving confident. Guys of Lidar tests will encourage you to get the LI's.

    The sensor heads are 3-1/8"L x 13/16"W x 9/16"H so they will fit in allot of different places.

    Good luck on the purchase / install
