Pics of my new 650!

I decided to break out the camera this afternoon and take a few photos of my new car. It's a beautiful early fall afternoon in New Mexico, so I couldn't pass up the photo opportunity. Enjoy!

Sharp car. The light in New Mexico is great for photography. Really makes your car pop! Waiting for our car to be re-delivered after our ED. It's currently on a boat over the Atlantic somewhere. One of our first road trips will be to Santa Fe and Albuquerque! Need my fix of Red and Green Chile!

It's the Passport 8500ci Plus built-in radar detector with GPS. It offers great protection, and the GPS feature helps lock out false alarms.

IC, where is the GPS component of the devise?

Was the Passport 8500ci difficult to install, have all those BMW fiber optic wires? What is a good price range, and method to find a qualified installer for this device?

What a beauty your car is!! Any issues so far?

The GPS module is installed on the flat surface behind the back seats, close to where the rear windshield meets the flat area. I paid $700 for the detector, and had it installed by my BMW dealer. It took a few hours of labor, but they did a really nice job.

I'm glad you like the car; I do too! The only issue I've had is with a rattle in the front passenger seat; they have mostly fixed the problem, but it still makes a little noise on occasion. Other than that the car has been perfect!

Is the device truely worth its weight in gold?

What does the device do as the state trooper points his radar gun in your direction as you are cruising down the freeway?

It's just a regular radar detector, but it's built into the car instead of using suction cups to attach it to your windshield. I've definitely been saved a number of times!

Po Po on the turnpike here use instant on laser with a tele sight and an effective range of 800 yards, the only thing a detector does is let you know you had your picture taken.

I had laser jammers on my X6, but I never got hit with a laser in my 3 years with the car. I decided to skip them with my 650. I guess New Mexico cops aren't quite so state of the art!

Looks great! I note you've gone for X-drive! I'm jealous, X-drive isn't available in the UK, hence mine is RWD...not great for the snow. Not that you will have to worry about that in New Mexico!! I'll be missing my old Quattro this winter! Enjoy!

Would you have been just as happy with the 19" rims vs. the 20's?

Actually, we do get snow in New Mexico. My house is at 6,300 feet elevation, and we get a fair amount of snow most winters; it just doesn't stick around for too long. For reference the mountains in the background of my photos are 10,600 feet in elevation.
