Escort Max 2 - It's the best I've used in years & has a nice and sleek design when hardwired.

Radar detectors are basically bricks if you don't speed on public roads.

And the M3 is a shitty car to own if you limit it to speed limit.

Mine has been on mute full time for a couple years now. It's just there so I can look at it when my laser jammers don't go off to see if the cop was running radar, which he never is. Glad you all live in places where they haven't upgraded to LIDAR.

Very rarely while traveling I'll come across a highway patrol who still has the mounted front and rear setup on his car, other than that it's only good for red light cameras, your speed is signs, and Audis.

They make places called tracks ya know. No need to limit your speed there, unless you want to catch your apex.

Radar detectors are for chumps anyway. What you need is a ticket preventer.

V1 here. Just sent in for most recent upgrade. It was a little annoying with false alerts on x band but I'm sure it will be much less now. There was actually a problem with it also which they covered with the upgrade fee.

If I only ever had fun on the track, the E46 M3 would not be the car I pick for that. I like having a little fun on my commute, on weekends, when traveling, etc.

And before you say it, you know well there's a difference between driving recklessly and speeding.

So are you saying that you never go above the posted speed limit?

Honestly, I find it hard to believe that anyone who owns an sports car, let alone an M3 is doing the posted speed limit 24 hrs a day/365 days of the year.

But hey 2016 proved anything is possible.
