Here is a video to compare Valentine 1 mounted into the rear headrest versus V1 unit mounted to the windshield.

We have them in stock ... so, you don't need to do anything ... just need your mirror for a week ...

I can send you a spare one while we are working on yours.

Would like to see pics of how/where the main unit it is mounted in the rear headrest....

I had the mirror display on my E36 M3 and loved it...thinking about going this route on the E90 M3 as well!

Looks awesome. A few questions:

1) how easily can the V1 unit be removed from the headrest? Is the unit itself modified at all?

2) is laser detection disabled by putting it in the headrest, or can you put small windows for the laser detectors in the headrest?

3) I'm in the bay area, could I drop off/pickup from your shop to avoid shipping?

4) you haven't done any E93s, but they should be possible, right?

It mounts inside the rear headrest, so you can't see it ...

In your case V1 will be placed in a different location. It won't be installed in the headrest.

You are loosing laser detection. It is an useless option anyway, because it won't protect you from the laser gun.

If you are local, you are more than welcome to stop by and drop it off.

It can be done on e93.

Thanks.
