V1 imo (it's what I have ), and do it yourself. It's seriously easy. I did my own, and helped Aurora Bearialis and rsmang with their installs so far.

Dude, any decent stereo shop can do it, and I'm sure LTBMW could do it too. It shouldn't take more than an hour at most to do it properly with a fuse tap.

Most people mount it high up on the windshield or on the visor. Some even put the detector in a tissue box to hide it on the visor.
