I'd go with the V1. It costs less, has a great rep, and is upgradable. I'm guessing it would be easier to install than that one also.

You must be really desperate to spend $1500 on a damn radar detector. Not a single detector out there offers 100% protection.
Even $800 is too much for that. Just get a V1.

nnnnmmm

i spoke with the guy who sells them i think he would sell them at the same price 800 bucks plus install , i just think its a great and new mod , call me crazy , but also not to knock the V1 but it does not block Lazer stuff, around my areas i drive they tend to pull that new tech crap with the lazer , once that hits you good night!
just some info , ps, i will take photos for you guys i ordered it

go for it bro, (i guess u already did, hehe) but i support ur decision. i have the 8500, and no complaints, so this should use all that technology and then some, so it cant be bad... only problem MIGHT be where the sensors are installed, in the front grille? the higher you mount the sensors, the better reception u will get.

good luck, show pics of Install when done!!

Hey, what about the Passport?

What's w/all the V1 recs? All the comparos I read rated the Passport 8500 higher. It's smaller & looks better too. Can't remeber but I think price is similar (around $300).
