Thanks! Yep, the mute button will kill the lasers for 2 minutes when you press it twice.

You got it. The E92 will be easier than the E93 for the simple fact that my trunk opens from the front AND the back for the top. It took a lot of thought to make sure I wasn't going to tear the cable in 2 when the top goes up/down.

I saw some installs that did this! It looks great, but people expressed concern that the slats of the grill would not allow a perfect view of the road. If yours is working well you lucked out. I would prefer your way but was worried I wouldn't get the emitters to spread across the road completely.

I agree with your opinion. They boxes are large, but it's good insurance against being caught speeding without realizing. And the only one that really bothers me is the one on the rear plate. It's too obvious, but I'm looking for a plate frame that has more substance I can modify so it looks more built into it rather than just sitting there on top.
