Exclamation Radar & Laser shifter installed ('05 F4)

I'm back

After my last hefty speeding ticket i decided it was time to install an Escort 9500ci system on the MV. It has radar front/back, GPS and front and rear laser shifters.

I'll probably pick it up this evening. Installation was done at Aston Martin Atlanta. Everything was very thought out and due to the limited space we had to be creative with the placement of things but it all fit and is very concealed.



Rear radar & laser shifter


Front Laser shifters (circled)


GPS antenna & main box


Front Radar detector hidden in faring


Work in Progress

Thumbs up

Everything looks great !!!
Just as a precaution, the ECU area gets very hot.
I'm not sure how heat sensitive the device is that's placed on the ECU, but it might be a good idea to have a raised mount added if there's room.
Looks to be a hell of a kit (to install as well).

Please post "system on" pics of the display unit. I'm curious to how bright it is and if there'd be a need to cover it incase the locals come investigating.

If need be i can install a heat shield between the ECU and box but I'm pretty sure its fine. Yes its difficult to install. They did a hell of a job. All cables are wrapped in heat shrink tubes. There will be no visible wires. It took them 2-3 days. I haven't seen the bill. Its not cheap but cheaper than some more tickets.

Here you go. I just picked her up. Works great! I'm using a bluetooth system for sound. The led lamp above the display flashed red for radar and I think blue for Laser.
