Nice install!

I use a V1 and LI combo and it works perfectly. My LI has JTG everything used in my area without effort but as others have said - It's all about the install.

I actually did a Passport 9500ci at Hurley's Auto Audio two weeks ago and everything came out to $2100!
So far it's too early for me to tell if the investment I have made works since I already know where all the grocery stores are :-)
I am testing this out so if I think it's worth it I'll get it on my SUV as well.. anyone else have this installed??

novablackm3 - Have you tested the M3 much against a competent shooter? The heads are awfully low. I haven't installed LI on mine yet but some have had good results mounting them vertically in the grille so I may try that.

Did anyone research if behind the plastic front bumper/spoiler cover there is enough space for this system to hide the Blinder/LI heads?

Can you guys clarify this for me, so if a laser is jammed and the cop sees he is not getting a reading then wouldn't they pull you over? And if they did would they take it from you?

Laser readings aren't instant on every vehicle. Some may take a few seconds to acquire depending on circumstances while others could be fairly instant if they are close enough and hit a flat surface.

When the LI is active it will appear to the LEO as a difficult read but not completely out of the norm, as long as you shut it down to a reasonable speed and deactivate the LI within a few seconds. This way they get a read on you and move on to the next vehicle. If you JTG (Jam To Gun), e.g. drive past the LEO while exceeding the PSL with a stupid grin on your face, then yes, you might just get pulled over and scrutinized.
