long story short I bought a 3.813 on ebay and when it arrived it was way out of tune. this was last Thursday so after driving around for a half day with it I decided to go on and send it off to Valentine Research (VR).
It arrived at 4:30PM on Friday so as expected they didn't even open it. This morning at 9am I get a call from VR telling me they had received the unit and wanted to be sure what I wanted done.
After seeing the Belscort threads & my own experience Escort experience you can't touch V1 service.
So I'm getting a new case / lens:
Cosmetic Upgrade: $30.00
I'm getting it looked over and tuned up: $45.00
Best part it should be sent out this afternoon and I'll have it tomorrow if the techs are happy with it.
So far $375.00 on eBay.
+75 for upgrades.
$450.00 - so the same cost as a new Belscort....
This thing better blow me away!
