RE: Upcoming roadtest: Escort 8500 vs. Valentine One

I think the hassle of being pulled over and possibly harrassed, maybe adding points and here, like Az, more than pays for the detector. Its a tall fine for even the smallest stop. Get 3 in a year and there's your money, you cant put a price on not being stopped and ruining your day.....I respect cops but many think they are above the law or gods

Mod list:Carlssons front bumper, custom angel eye fogs, headlight rings, #1 pads, Eibach springs, Inmotion ECU tuning, chrome wheels, Illuminated door sills, in dash DVD and backup camera, complete audio system, AMG pedals, LED lights, Blk maple and chrome shift knob, blk maple center cover and door pulls, Zaino, H&R 10mm spacers, K&N filters, Magnaflow exhaust

RE: Upcoming roadtest: Escort 8500 vs. Valentine One

+1 on the last 2 posts guys. I also forgot to mention that most of the time, due to the nature of some areas i work, im usually armed and do not like run ins with leo's because many ive polled are not pro gun for law abiders like myself and just secretly want more job security IMO. I never have been asked for a vehicle search, but if asked, i would/will always decline politely. The $700-900 in equipment for me is absolutely nothing to me as i must get past the next 6 months w/o a ticket or one i got last spring will stick bringing me to 2 tickets resulting in higher premiums. And guys....With nearly 10 vehicles on insurance, its no box of chocolates, this i guarantee![:0]
