What is the best place to install my new 9500i on a Mercedes 2002 CL500. This car has a infrared reflecting glass. Does it matter where I put it? The manufacturer tells me to put in low on the windshield, but I do not know if they put the infrared reflecting glass into acount.

Zinc on the glass

The windshield has a thin layer of metal on most of it and the detector will not get much of a signal unless you mount it right around the rearview mirror where the glass has been blacked out. Mercedes did not apply the film there so that electronics can "see" in and out of the vehicle through the windshield. I live in an area where there are automated toll collection facilities and also own a radar detector. I can attest that the signals pass through the glass in the section right around the rear view mirror just fine.
