I have had very good luck with my Blinder HP-905 quad system for those interested in jammers. Much smaller heads compared to the LIs. Apparently earlier models of the HP-905 had issues but there was a software update in december and compared to recent testing the Blinder does just as well as the LIs.

Nice ride Dunderhi. My 335d was white over saddle so I love the contrast. Your pics make me want to go back to a 650 build instead of 550 build. Your trade value sounds nice. I got 33k for mine with 20k miles in December.

Thanks for the heads up, I don't know about anyone else but after stealths review of the quads I just can't go anywhere else unless some new device flipped the police cars when they put their gun on you lol.

Hmmm, 640 or 650, coupe or convertible ...

Link me the review if you can, I haven't seen it. I have avoided 2 big tickets with the Blinder so far in the past 5 months which means the system has already paid for itself. I can't fathom going back to driving without countermeasures. The LIs are amazing but I wish they were smaller in size. Even the BMW specific heads look out of place to my eye.

I mean its not really a elongated review, its just lots of talk we've had on the subject. I'll see if I can dig up some of the threads.
