Wanted to ask you about the radar detector you have in the window there...what kind is it and does it work well:?:....Thinking about purchasing one, can't keep my foot from mashing it 95% of the time:hihi:.....just way to much fun..
The radar detector is an Escort Passport 8500 which I have had for a few years now. I can't see driving without one, but some say it is a bother. I deleted the Xband to alleviate false alarms and it has saved me several times. Particularly with the laser, we have Harley cops in wolf packs using laser and they usually hit someone ahead of me. Thinking of upgrading to the Escort 9500 with GPS photo ticket locations included.

The tint is Dark. In Florida we are allowed 80% I think, but this is a little more. It really helps in the 94 degree heat with 89% humidity in the Summer.
