Exclamation need advise..

Hello all, i was recently testing the limits of my new baby, the e500, and i got busted by a cop at 270km/h . i need advise as to whats the best kind of radar sensor or if anyone knows of one that can be installed into the car. the reason for that is because i dont like the clutter inside with the wire, i just like it simple. so thanks alot for the help.

I don't know where you are, but in the US, the Valentine One has been very successful. Truly though, at 270km/h (168mph, 155kts) a radar detector won't save you.

The best is local race track - case there are no cops.

Your profile does not include a location, and kph means you are outside the U.S. In Germany a radar detector is illegal and would require a hidden installation. If caught in Germany, you are looking at a large fine, and you would have to remove everything before the tech. inspections. I remember in the old days, Erich Zakowski who owned the F-1 zakspeed team, had his license plates on vibrating springs, and had installed a flash, that would come on every time a flash camera would try to take a picture.
