nice post l337, very informative. i just wish they would come down in price
As popular as the V1's are, check around at different places for the lowest price. You might even check Ebay, to see what is available.

i got the k40 front and rear system at the dealership when i got my car... but i believe it is also a blocker.. so

i was impressed about the install.. extremely clean.. knob for city/highway mode under the dashboard

2 circle lights on top of speedometer for rear and front lasers..

expensive but nice...

oh yah and about performance? well lets say i have no ticket yet.. my dad told me he took the car for a spin... and was going over limit and the cop didnt stop him.. so i donno

by the way.. 1st year k40 will pay if u get a ticket :P

yea i saw that k40 thing, at an audio store around here, thats crazy they&#39;ll pay for your ticket, considering a cop can pull you over, by pacing you, and never even using his radar, so they are probably gonna have to stop offering that cause of stupid people not realizing there is a cop pacing them

By the way, Radar Jammers are illegal in the USA. Laser Jammers are fully LEGAL, however.

When you get a ticket, the Cop annotates how he got your speed. K40 will only pay if he got you with a radar, not Pacing...

I&#39;m sure its more but how much is an aftermarket K-40 install in the dash and lisence plates. That&#39;s how they do it, right?

v1 is the best one...also the most expensive. you can buy a ton of whistlers for the price of v1... more is probably better

wow this topic is so old...
anyways if you get hit with a radar gun by the time your sensor goes off isn&#39;t it already to late? (except for speed traps) although san diego area at least and the major police departments are switching to laser which cannot be detected with radar detectors, which makes them obsolete. and you cannot not detect lasers unless it hits the sensor dead on.
so correct me if im wrong but i bielive these are useless...

I personally like the Escort 8500, I ahve a firend who had both and loves the Escort, and its cheaper. I also dont car which direction the radar is coming from, because all I need to know is to slow down, doesnt matter where its coming from.

V1 is the only one ....

once you get one you will see that the others are just lights and noises that don&#39;t help

V1 is a radar protection system that teaches you the art of how radar is used. Spend the money and stop wondering if what you have is the best.... it will be.

youre still not invincible with a V1, the arrows are nice but that doesnt justify the &#036;100+ price increase over the passport imo.
