    (Updated 6/28/2021) Worried about driving your BMW like a BMW and ending up in a stern conversation with your local law enforcement accompanied by a ticket? There are two excellent ways to avoid getting pulled over for speeding. The first is to never do it, the second is to know where the...

    Is there a code for turning off the gesture control laser on 2018 M550i? As many of you know, the GC laser sets off the laser signal on radar detectors. So I turned off the laser on the radar detector thinking that the cops in my town are unlikely to have laser guns. Well - I was wrong. I got a...

    Hey guys, this is a bit of an odd question. I couldn't seem to find it addressed in another forum, but please feel free to direct me there if you know of an answer. In my e90, I hardwired in a dash cam and radar detector to the dome light. I used this tutorial, and just used an extra wire for...

    I just traded in my 2013 GTR for a 2014 M5 after I decided I just wasn't mature enough to drive a GTR (impossible not to drive it like a race car and take on every Porsche, Ferrari, etc. that wants to play -- I knew in the end I was either going to end up in jail or dead/seriously injured). I...

    What is the easiest way to hard wire a radar detector in a 535?

    Looking to use wire an outlet for my Escort 9500ix using the Escort direct wire kit. My goal is to tap into the power in the microphone/light panel in my X3 similar to the DIYs posted here for the replacement dimming mirror upgrades. Blend Mounts, which are the best solution I've seen for...

    I recently took delivery of a new 2012 750Lix. A ritual of sorts, is normally hardwiring a Valentine One into every new vehicle to provide many hours of "uninterrupted" motoring! To my dismay, it seemed that somehow the police had already targeted my sparkling new white car after driving off...
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys, need your opinions on this problem. I posted this to the board, however need BMW-specific opinion, plus it takes a while for posts to get approved there, so here it is: I have 2009 BMW E61 (535xiT) with Active Cruise Control (stop and go). I finally found time...
  10. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Dear Fellow/Fellah led footers: I recently got my 2011 550ixdrive upgraded to a stage 2 Dinan. In addition to telling me on a daily basis that I am the fairest of them all, my rearview mirror also told me that I'm in store for a boatload of speeding tickets and possibly a trip to the local...

    Attached is a pdf file detailing how to connect an Escort radar detector to the glove box fuse panel. It should be useful for anyone wanting to make any sort of connection to that fuse panel.

    I'm installing a radar detector in my 03 330xi. The best place to pull power from is at the fuse panel as its closest to the detector module. Anyone have any ideas as to which wire is best for pulling power from. I need one that's switched power
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi! First post! So I currently have a 2007 335 and due to a fairly heavy foot I need a radar detector. At the moment I have it plugged in the socket in the ashtray in the center console. I just ordered a new 335 and noticed that the ashtray is no longer there and the lighter socket is now...
  14. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello! Right from the start I have to say that I have never posted a tutorial on something like this, so don't be too hard on me!!! I am sure there are better or even simpler ways to do this but this method worked for me. I did make a minor mistake which I will point out but overall it was...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    In case anyone wants to try a similar install, here's a blog I wrote on how I hardwired my radar detector into my 335i coupe's fusebox safely and reversibly (and cheaply and easily):

    Escort Passport 8500 x50 - Blue display. Practically new, works great! Just plug it in and go. The instruction manual is useful for setting it up to your specifications. Switching from "Highway" mode to "City" or "Auto" mode can be done at the push of a button. On e-bay...
  17. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hey guys, first, I did run a search for this topic but the posts are mostly for the 3er and 5er. I am wondering if any of you guys had hard wired a Valentine One in your 7er and if you placed it behind the rear view mirror or on the dash board. Thanks, Bimmerguy
