What is the best position for a V1 or 9500ix to be mounted? Can it be too high or too low on the windshield of an M3? If you hide a V1 in a headrest, will it still detect laser?

Sorry for all the questions, this is the first time I've looked at radar detectors seriously...
Hidden headrest option will affect laser, this is why I do not recommend this setup. Defeats the purpose, we are working a custom rear headrest design that allows the unit to be exposed for laser detection.

It's not a good idea to leave the unit visible if parked for any length of time especially in questionable areas. Would you leave x4 $100 bills on your dash? Thieves will steal it and sell it on the open market easily and they know it. I simply un-plug it and hide it.

Obioban: I had this setup on one of my e46 m3's however this only works on e46 M3 that is 6-speed manual, not SMG's from what I remember.
