Definately Valentine 1

I just finished up my stealth install last night with the help of Stuart.
Do a search for stealth V1 install. He sells custom made ash tray set ups that work incredibly well. And look very very good. If you can't find it let me know and I'll hook you up. I did a lot of research and his set up is by far the best way to go for stealth.

I heard from a few people that radar detectors are a waste of money because most of the time it's a false alarm. One of my friends said he doesn't even pay attention to his anymore. But then I was reading in one thread that the V1 is well worth the money. So now I'm not sure if I should buy one. Is it worth the money or will it just end up being ignored and useless? Need advice on this one...anybody?

It depends on which radar your friend was using. If he is using a Cobra or one of those cheapo radar detectors, then yea, he will get a lot of false alarms. The V1 has three logic modes to filter out such false alarms. However, you pay a premium price for it. I find that the radar detectors for more useful and effect on those long freeway trip say from Norcal to Socal. Around the city and what not, it is somewhat useless. Beware of those overpasses though. I hope Norcal doesn't have cop on those overpasses shooting Lidar.

And...in addition to the things I said I'd buy on my first post, I also plan on buying a new front bumper, tinting the windows, and buying new headlights. If you guys have suggestions, let me know.

Also, I never attached my lip spoiler. One friend told me I had to clean the area with rubbing alcohol first and another friend told me to buy this one product that removes wax. Does anyone know of the product?
Did you put your tail lights on? Post some pictures of your recent mods.

In terms of product, try Klasse All-In-One. It is a pre-polish for waxes, but it will remove oxidation, old wax build-up, road tar and insect residue.

Thanks for the advice. I don't know if I can afford it though...me and my husband just bought an S2000 on December 29th. How much are they anyway?
