I need some advice. I live with my cousin and he's to the point where one more ticket and he loses his license. He's also low on cash atm and when he asked how much my STi-R cost the $600 price tag scared him away from the subject. I think an RD is necessary for him at this point even if he is trying to do the speed limit constantly. We're in VA which means RDs are illegal but that also means 90% of cops just use c/o. Since a ticket for having a RD is no points and c/o is the main threat I'm thinking a less expensive model would give him alot of protection for his situation.
Do you think that a lower end RD would be worth it for him even if he's not trying to speed?
I'm not to familiar with the budget detectors but after using the search button it seems the escort refurbs sold on ebay (by escort) are a real bang for the buck, and theres a new whistler coming out that the veil guy talked about on his blog. Would anyone suggest a different model or a preference between the 8500 50x and the new whistler?
