Of course, the dealer tried to upsell everything from nitrogin filled tires to paint protection to mats. One thing that did intrigue me was the dealer installed radar detector. It's a K40 (which I never heard of). And it ain't cheap (2K). But I like the idea of it being out of sight.

Anyone have any experience with this ... good or bad?

Clearshield, tint, paint fabric protection are all wise investments. The K40 is a great unit if you know how to use it, and want the best. I've had them in a Mercedes E63 and a 911 turbo and the K40 saved my ass many times. I know the cops were pissed when they got jammed, you could tell by the scowl on their face. Don't know much about the others, but I always figured that radar/hammer wasn't the option I would get cheap on. Good luck
