Ever since I got my car last June I have wanted a V1 but did not feel like spending the money. My summer was ticket free but my luck ran out in the fall. So I bought a Whistler XTR-150 and I have been ticket free since October but I really wanted something better. So last week I caved and shelled out the 400$ and I'm very happy that I did. I have it mounted to the right of my RVM and hardwired. I will post some pictures when I get a chance.
