Nice Jake! I like your last update and the car is looking great. I miss my setup. Just using a V1 right now. I lost interest of the whole scanner thing because of the majority of Pa State Police switching over to Open Sky that can't be monitored. I wish they'd ditch the new radios..

If you can avoid points and the insurance costs associated while actually driving your car the way it was meant to be driven, why not?


Jake - how's the performance of the LI's up front? 8.8 or 8.9 heads? I've got the same front bumper, but still have the chrome grills. Performance could be better, I'm JTG only on a couple different guns.

Blinder M27 jammers, Escort lasershifter zr3, Escort 8500X50 red, Valentine 1, V1 Concealed display, Veil, 6 head 120 watt strobe kit, Whelen Epsilon 1 police siren and PA system, Debating on a scanner and cb to use! any advice would be appreciated.

This is all in my E46 touring which has no sunroof, easy to mount things and lots of room


any advice on the cb or scanner would be greatly appreciated.

I put 32,000 miles on the car in 10 months.... so i can justify putting a bit of money into it.

and here I am debating against myself for having my mag mount antenna on the trunk for my Wilson cell cradle lol. I used to have all sorts of stuff in my other cars, but nowadays...I have my phone mounted on my dash, and while the scanner apps aren't as fast as real ones, I still have basic usage if I feel it, I have GPS on there, and everything else. And I gave up speeding a while back, mostly. Only place I get on it now, is on back roads that I know, that aren't traveled heavily. Everywhere else is just too public nowadays. And everyone and their cousin holding a cell phone with an itchy dialing finger just waiting to rat someone out for driving out of the norm.

I have 8.9 front and 8.8 rear. JTG all the way against a Truspeed S and LRB. I just need to fix up my rear heads a bit.

Ditch the Blinders and get LI's. Your M27's stand NO chance against the new guns out there. As for the CB I have a Uniden PRO520XL with a Laird CB27 antenna. Range is incredible. For a scanner I think PA state police uses digital so you will need a digital scanner, I recommend the Uniden BCD396XT

Still nice to have a detector to see what's going on.

Here is my new CB antenna. Extremely easy to tune, a lot less visible and the range is far better than the firestik (build quality is a lot better too)

I've had great luck with both my m20 and 27's. which LI do you run? I'll look into it but in every single state i've ever been shot with, i've had zero issues with JTG. Theyve worked every single time. I just ordered a 520XL and was considering what to use as far as a scanner, im pretty set on a uniden, digital is without question. i need to find a good base and antena for my CB, and debate what i'm going to do as far as scanner. i dont mind doing a trunk mount with a remote head, this is all in my touring so i have plenty of room.

Have you had any testing done? If so, which guns? Those times they "worked" could have been the cop being a crappy shooter, targeting you too far away, not caring about your speed, targeting the car next to you, etc. In the testing I've seen and done myself, LI's are superior to everything. The latest 8.9 heads are just icing on the cake.
