Have had my Valentine 1 for about 5 weeks now. Road trip to Chicago, spotted a setup about 1/2 mile away. I backed off & the Beetle & Explorer running behind me did not, and both pulled over.
Have seen 4 separate occasions where the warning was so much in advance it amazed me.
Plus you cant beat the 'front, side, back' warning as well. IMHO it is the best above all else.
BMW should give thought to offering it as a factory option :-)
One cool thing too is BradL has been nice enough to post a real simple direct wire install for it which looks great & works very well.
