    Default Don't buy an Escort Shifter ZR3

    My front sensors are worn and need to be replaced. I called Escort and they tell me I need to call the place that I bought it and had it installed (Tweeter). So I call Tweeter and they tell me all they can do is get a complete brand new unit or a refurbished one. I call Escort back and tell them what Tweeter told me. Escort wants me to call back before 3pm eastern and ask for a tech about spare parts. This sounds like BS to me.

    Also, the ZR3 doesn't jam the Laser Atlanta Stealth mode at all. Just thought I would warn anyone thinking about buying one.

    Roy, I need to buy a Blinder M20 with the replaceable lenses. What kind of deal can I get from your site? Also, if I buy from you can I get it installed by a Blinder authorized installer? I'm not good with car electronic installations.

    I just found out that a single new front sensor is $119.95 from Escort, so I need 2 which is about $240 plus a $75 install fee. $315 to just replace the front sensors!!!!!!!!!!!! Escort's laser jammer is crap. If I ran Roy's site I wouldn't offer it anymore. I will be buying a Blinder M20.

    Thanks for the link, but I think I want to get one from a factory authorized dealer so it will have a warranty.

    The seller has a 100% positive feedback rating on Ebay and it says that you get a 2 year manufacturers warranty and a 1 year ticket guarantee (some small restrictions apply)

    Hey Big (Sl)easy guy.
    You use this forum to get over your point of view. Whether I agree or not is immaterial, but you are rather tiresome.
    Then you point a forum user to another site to buy a product that Roy sells, just because its cheaper!! Why not give Roy a go first?
    Your ethics stink, and I suspect I'm not the only forum user who wishes you would just go away. No, on second thought, why don't you just f*ck off?

    Why would you buy from a cop for $50 extra when you can get it cheaper somewhere else. My ethics stink, Ha Ha Ha, go back and eat some koala burgers and lick a kangaroo down under. By the way, I love the Wiggles, which one are you??

    You guys love that the 8500 is cheaper than the V1. When someone points out where to get a cheaper M-20 you get all upset.

    Joop, go back and reread my post. I was never talking about price, rather Sleazyguy's lack of ethics in trying to send one of Roys potential customers to another retailer.
    A couple of facts, Roy isn't a cop, he used to be one, and so knows lots we need to understand. He is now in the RD business and this forum is part of a commercial site where Roy does business. Sleazeybucket uses the forum, yet isn't even interested in how Roy makes a living to support it. One might think a reasonable solution would be to email Roy that you can buy the product cheaper somewhere else and ask if the price can be matched. Thats ethical!
    What Sleazy**** is doing is not.
    And that he "Loves the Wiggles" (A gay icon in Aus) tells you something about him.

    All this fighting back and forth is stupid. Save that crap for the internet chat rooms. This forum is about speed countermeasure devices and related info, not who thinks who has bigger nuts.

    Bottom line: I'm interested in buying a Blinder with the lowest price from an authorized dealer. Ebay is not an authorized dealer.
