: Hello I'm seriously considering buying a valentine one radar detector but am having doubts about how well it will work in my 323i because I have tinted windows. I got them dealer installed and they are at the legal tint limit whatever that maybe. Does anyone have a V1 in a tinted 3 if so how well does it work? Dr Bimmer can you help me out too? Thanks in advance.

the only thing tinted windows might affect is laser (but IMO the V1 is useless against laser)....radar is in a diff part of the electromagnetic spectrum to be affected by tinting...there MIGHT be a small affect if the the tint has a metallic outer appearance but i am not sure
