from what i understand and i could be wrong but the chrome will reflect back, buti think you can treat the chrome with the veil just fine... maybe someon with a little more experience with VEIL could confirm what i say or maybe something else to help ya out.
I have the same VW emblem on my Jetta. You can also go to Sherwin Williams and ask them to make you an aerosol can of paint to make it the same colour as the rest of your car. They will be able to color match the paint. It looks sleek and reduces the laser reflection.
Fortuantly I don't think the chrome should raise much concern as long as you are going to use a Blinder or a Diode based jammer with VEIL.
On my roommates Audi S4 which is nothing but chrome on the front we tried several different things to see if it made any difference. We tried putting a black t-shirt over the chrome grill, we tried tucking the side view mirrors in, at the end of the day once we put VEIL on the headlights the punch throughs really went down.
If you wanted to paint the chrome the same color as your car that's up to you, however I'd never go that far.
I would say pick up a can of VEIL, grab a Blinder M-20 and your set What state do you live in? Do some research if the LEO's use Pro Laser III in your area then you are really good to go.
I wouldn't worry too much about your chrome as its not too much and it is reflecting upward.

Yes I agree, painting the car is out of the question but I do thank you for the suggestings. Well, infact the only laser we have here in NC is the Pro Laser III so getting a blinder and some veil will more than likely solve the Chrome problem. Do you think I would need a Blinder 20 or 40. It's a small car but it does have a lot of chrome.Originally Posted by thestaton
I live in Charlotte, NC also. I didn't/don't have as much concern for laser as you do/did.
Read this thread about what some of the other members here think about laser in NC: http://www.radardetector.net/first-V1-13067t.php
Have you encountered laser before here in NC? I just got my V1, but with my old detector, i never encountered laser. I don't have any laser countermeasures on my car yet.
M40 definitely, for close up shots a must.Yes I agree, painting the car is out of the question but I do thank you for the suggestings.

Would it be smart to apply Veil to the inside of my headlight units. They have a plastic cover that I can pop off and apply to the inside. Will the veil melt under the light heat? Thanks
