Look into the Escort Redline if you do mostly highway driving..
Basically, it's a stripped down (less bells and whistles & more power) version of the 9500ix.
THe 9500ix is very nice with on-line traffic camera updates, etc...
If you drive mostly city, 9500IX is a good choice..
Mostly Highway, ....Redline is better

Even the best radar detector will not help you if the cop uses laser to clock your speed. By the time the detector goes off, you're pretty much already busted.
A laser scrambler is the only thing that works in that situation.

i will not argue that the 8500 is by far the best value.

Here's a recent-ish test that gives the actual data.
These guys have also tested laser jammers and other methods of not getting nabbed. The site is worth exploring.

All:

I may need to replace/upgrade my OEM TD-04 turbo. This need is a bit ahead of schedule so I'm looking to save money where possible.

I recall some of you had turbos on hand so if you have any let me know so I can make a decision soon.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Dana
