how is your detector working? is it worthed?
worth it?? hell ya!!! saved me from more then a few tickets, and if they pull up behind me to pull me over, since its hard wired with a switch by the shifter, all i have to do is reach down while going for the insurance card in the glove box and turn it off and they stand high neough they wont see it and wont hear it since its off...that and no cord hanging down is AWESOME!!!
