If it wasn't for the specific list by state at the bottom of the link for the shifter that GoFastBobby posted, I would probably have no problem believing you. Although i can't verify the information as being accurate, that list suggests that someone did the homework that you are referring to, but have not done yourself (yet).


And RBB can go ahead and shove a cheese-covered cat up his ass since he wasn't paying attention to what was posted.

I'd go with a Passport 9500i. I love the GPS speed display.

I did enough research quite a while ago when I was into the sport compact thing, and admitedly drove like an asshat. I fail at many things, including keeping that now dated research readily at hand, and/or updated. :tonka:

I can't decide if that's kinky-hot, or kinky-gross. Have to wonder if it would be a live cat, and what variety. long hair, short hair, or one of those sick/evil looking naked ones.

while i have tried to slow down for many years, i have come to the conclusion, that if the radar detector were to save me one ticket, it will pay for itself. especially considering the insurance premium.

same with the laser jammer.

btw, i trust that everyone does know that the second link is a laser jammer and not a radar jammer. the laser jammer interfaces with the radar detector to alert you when you are being hit with laser. while it may not give you any advanced warning, it is supposed to protect you from the laser by flooding back.

i am confident the jammer will work well with the mustang, being that it's relatively streamlined and small. there just aren't many places to hit it with a laser gun. where you can hit it(headlights, and license plate), is where i will put the transceivers.
