    Hey all, my wife is driving our 4-Gt and loves it :thumbup:, but it doesn't have blind spot detection. She really wants this after we took a road trip in a loaner which had it. I also saw how it worked and loved it. I have been doing lots of research and there are several aftermarket kits...
  3. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I picked up my 2018 540i this weekend. I noticed that my Valentine 1 radar detector constantly triggers the laser alarm. At present, I've disabled the laser detector feature, but I'd prefer to keep it active if anyone has a solution. I have Driving Assistance & Assistance Plus Packages as...
  4. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi All, I'm looking for a radar (doppler or single) to use to activate some devices when triggered. The idea is that the radar would be connected to an external circuit so I could connect the radar to the 12V socket via adapter or to the fuse box if there is some space. My question is: The few...

    After trying to do hardwired my escort passport the traditional way (tap into a switched fuse). After a couple of hours I find out that non of the fuses in the passenger side glove box are switched fuses. I did some reserved and found out there is a switched power wire behind the obd2 port...
  6. F12/F13 M6 & F06 M6 Gran Coupe (2012 - current)
    Anyone been able to get the rear view mirror light assembly off on a 2014 M6 GC to hardwire a radar detector like a Valentine? It's doesn't seem the same as some videos I've seen on the M5. Thanks for any help removing this panel!!!
  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I found an older thread in which a gentleman took apart his rear view mirror to install the display for an Escort 9500ci (I believe it was) behind the glass in the rear view mirror. From what I can tell, in older mirrors, you had to etch out the metallic portion behind the glass for the display...

  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey All, I looked for hours and hours how to install a display for a radar detector like a Bel STI-R or Escort Passport 9500CI, to no avail. Lots of people posted images of their final product, but nobody wanted to share how the install was done. So, I took apart my mirror, installed a 9500ci...

  12. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    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...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm hardwiring my beltronics radar detector to my 2007 x3 this evening and had a couple questions. 1. Does anyone know if I can use an escort hardwire kit a friend bought online with my beltronics radar? It seems to be the same set up but I haven't found clarification yet. If so, that's great...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm trying to find some solutions for radar detectors in a '09 335xi coupe and '11 550xi. Was told by BMW that the 9500ci install in the 550xi would look "aftermarket" and spent some time with their installer who gave some options (mirror or by knee/console). I decided to wait to hear some of...
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    G'day all, Forgive my ignorance in advanced. Is the Valentine One (and others) supposed to detect radar from speed cameras/mobile car speed cameras? In other words, is it supposed to let you know when your coming up to a (police) mobile speed camera or what is it's function? I ask this as I...

    Hi all - just recently transitioned from an older BMW to a new F10 550i. I have a Valentine One radar detector that I had installed in the old car, wired to the switched power for the sunroof above the overhead lights, and positioned just to the left of the rear view mirror. It worked very...
