I called VR today because I wanted to try another V1. Now the last time I tried one was over 1 year ago and I returned it. I wanted to give the V1 another chance and compare it to my STi. But F no!!!!! I called VR and they told me that even though it has been over 1 year I would have to pay a $50 re-stocking fee if I decided to return it for some reason. It's not like I would buy and return on a regular basis.
And get this, I asked her what if 5 or more years had past if I could return another one without a re-stocking fee and she said no. The VR rep then told me that it doesn't matter how much time has past if you return a V1 you can't return another without the re-stocking fee ever again!!
IMO, that's bull$hit!!!!!!!
I guess I will have one of my friends that doesn't care about radar detectors buy it for me if I really want to try another one.
