Question V1 install

Anyone care to share any pics they have for a stealthy V1 install?

Click Here for a link to a really nice install on a Honda s2000.

Interesting... but it's still visible...

this mirror install is better IMO....


I haven't seen pics, but someone once installed the remote display in the guage cluster where the steptronic indicator usually is....

What you posted is the InV1si-Mirror from the guys at umnitza. This is only available in the older e36 non-dimming mirror.

Thier website shows a protoype of a using a newer stlye mirror. This takes care of the remote display but does the main unit.

Why?

Looks or is it a local law?

The radar sprays all over the inside of the car bouncing off things including your skull. so the V1 will detect even in the glove box. Stick it on the shelf between the seats and use the remote display on the ledge infront of the spedo. if you want remote power control use the v1 remote control over the top of your visor or on the side of the seat. the added detection by mounting on your roof wouldn't help with the most common kind of speed detection, instant on. thats my 2 cents.

Actually you want both forward- and rearward-facing radar antennas (front and rear laser sensors too) This will give you as clear a view as possible. Putting it in a glove box would be worthless.

From the Valantine website "When properly mounted, the front antenna will look forward through the glass. It must have an unobstructed view. Don't put it behind the windshield wipers, or in-glass antenna. Don't position it so that it "looks" into the rearview window.
The rear antenna will look rearward, between passengers and out the rear window. It must have an unobstructed view."

Yes thats right. Those things increase detection range.

Just trying to point out the radar thats ON is easy to detect,(even in the glove box, put your v1 on your seat and see).
The instant-on radar and laser is almost impossible to avoid no matter what you do.

No one likes the look of detectors.
one mounted betwen the seats would be a nice spot with remote control and display from valentine.
Sealing V1's in watertight boxes (2 of them) mounted one up front and one on the rear with two V1 remote displays has alwasy been an idea.

I just upgraded to the new one which is smaller and I have it on the windshield next to mirror with remote dusplay by spedo. its wired to the map light so no wire shows. the mirror with display is out since I have the small mirror with garys adapter.

Bob,
Care to share any pics you might have for a V1 install? I was looking for Z4 pics but anyone with a clean install on a Z3/Coupe would be nice to see.

Sorry, I'm late to the party.

The InV1si is actually available for ANY non-auto-dimming mirror.

I read the whole thread on S2Ki, I don't like the open look.

Just get accustomed to knowing which position LED means which band and you're set.
