Well I've been after a RD for a long time since i got my car about a month ago, and I've done my research. Originally I wanted to go with the STi for the simple fact that it could not be detected...but given its 33.8 issue and not so good "fix", I've decided to go with a V1.
Given V1's rear detection, and my civic's design, the mounting is crucial.
Originally I wanted to mount above the RVM like a picture you will soon see, but I've heard it causes the RD to lose rear detection and laser from the back...
Not quite sure why, but it may be due to the new civic's weird windshield and rear window design.
The area in front of the RVM has a dot matrix, which I would assume could hurt the V1's performance, so I need some major help in mounting it. (I do want to mount high, a 50-50 chance of an early laser hit is much better than a 100% ticket hit.
Anyways, here is what a fellow 8th gen civic owner set his up, how bad does his set up hinder the V1's ability?
Should I try to mount right below the RVM?
