    Default Need help deciding what to buy

    Hey, guys! I live in VA.. Yes, I know radar detectors and laser jammers are illegal here.

    Starting in January I'll be commuting 30 miles (one way) to college five days a week. It will be mostly on the highway. I drive a 2001 BMW 740il. The other day I bought an escort redline but I think I need a laser jammer setup. I'm definitely a lead foot.

    Any ideas?

    Laser jammer is pretty straightforward, LI or Blinder.

    Laser Interceptor (LI) or Blinder are the only types of jammers worth getting

    Will the blinder m27 be sufficient? Will I need that veil stealth coating or can I get by without it?

    I can't speak about Blinder except what I read on here and tests that I have seen on here with Veil does make a difference. I am running with an LI on a '08 Dodge Ram with chrome grill and bumper. The truck is silver and when I tested my set up at our last meet, I got JTG with a couple insignificant PT's. Those PT's were around 70' and 90'. I'm not even running HP's.

    LTI Truespeed got punch through at 248' while targeting my headlights. The Stalker LZ-1 got punch through at 80' center and 70' headlights.

    Veil makes a significant difference, and is always recommended. But it does not make up the difference between a Blinder and an LI.
