GT's new Bel StiR + and quad Blinder M47

Finally got the next mod done to the GT
Had Bel StiR + installed with quad blinder M47 shifters...
So far first impression... So much quieter and so many fewer false alerts then my V1 set ups i had in my X5 and sell have in my C4s....
will start modifying the settings a little more as I get more comfortable with the unit...
But so far so good...
Driving in today i felt so much safer...and likely just my imagination but i think the car got FASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Temp pics to follow from my iPhone hopefully new HD pics this weekend if the exhausts are finally in.....

Hey congrats! You must be so happy to have your ride back! I can see why you added this stuff - it's so easy to not realize how fast you're going.

You'll never have to say, "I swear officer, the heads up display wasn't on......"

Looks like all of the equipment is well-positioned without taking over the aesthetic. You must be so pleased!

its crazy.. but true.. every time i look down I'm going 85-95 miles an hour and i think I'm going 60... So yes i certainly am enjoying the car again with a little less concern that its getting a way from me...

they did a nice job... very stealth inside and out yet everything is within easy reach..

took a couple of drives on my normal route, a little time on the radar blogs and some help from fest members but i have the RD programmed perfectly so far.. really limiting false alerts so much quieter then my V1 in my other car....

Unfortunately the only bad thing about the Bel StiR vs the escort 9500ci is the alert voice is an annoying droney male voice...instead of the pleasant female voice of the escort....

oh well i figure at some point they will release a software that will allow us to change the voice...

hope your enjoying the ride....
