Default New M3 owner! Whats the best/reliable radar detector?

i recently bought a 2004 blk M3 vert SMG and i live in miami so little scared of the cops. i usually dont speed but with this car its a little tempting.
ive been hearing alot of crap about dif radars like Valentine or Cobra. im not in the mood to get some radar that have like 40 buttons. any1 have any good radars to recommend at an affordable price? easy to use?
thanks

Escort 8500. Read the user opinions on epinions.com...

That being said i dont have either, but if i were to buy one, I'd buy the escort. (Which I probably will very shortly)

Based on what I read on CNN, I wouldn't waste the money. Most cops are going to laser based speed guns which are undetectable by radar detectors. That sucks........

There is one built into the car !!!
If you match needle on the gauge to the signs on the side of the road, then you will never get pulled over. If you do, I will pay the ticket !
