I too went through that decision process, but decided to go with a Escort 7500 which is less expensive and a little smaller than the V1. (However, V1 is the performance leader, so if you want the ultimate go with that one). I hardwired it to UGDO (shuts off with ignition) in the ceiling panel and routed wire under roof liner and down driver's pillar (easy to tuck behind without removing anything) to left side of dash, where it is velcroed in place. Very clean and unobtrusive. Passenger in the car can't even see it. Cops and thieves can't see it either.

: I'm interested in getting a wireless system and leaning toward the escort solo...heard that their not as good as wired one's but don't want the wire hassle...any thoughts for my E39 528i...NF (98)
