Has anyone tried to figure how to put a Valentine 1 into the F01? In the E65, it fit between the "humps" of the speedometer and Nav display. I am trying to figure where to put it on the new one.;)
TIA

Really???
I cant get my Valentine to work properly on my 06 750 at ALL!!!! The coating on the glass makes it EXTREMELY unreliable! The only place that it works is the coating space in the top by the rear view mirror, so I dont use it in this car because it is too awkward in that location.

Either please tell me what you did to make yours work (are you sure it is working properly?) and you pose a good questions - does the F1 have the same coating on the front glass which prevents radars from working properly?
Too late since I already made my order for the F2, but it would be good to know.

I have bee using mine in the same place this guy did. In between the two binnacles, about 1-2 inches up on the windshield. Works great

After having my car for years - I just noticed that redish area - I will try this today!
