Well, getting tickets was never an issue until I bought my 97 328i and my 2002 330xi but I did just received a ticket (and well deserved I might add) the other day. This ticket brought home the realization that especially in the 330xi it would be so easy to gun the car to pass some one and be picked up on radar that I should perhaps take care of business.

Here in Vancouver, BC laser guns are used almost exclusively and I can't help wonder how a radar detector is going to help me other than to let me know I was just caught, moments before I am pulled over. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I was checking out this link, any thoughts on this unit would also be appreciated:
