Argh! It happened this afternoon on the interstate, 81 in a 60. Anyone want to buy a fast, 2-week old car? [:(]

Not yet! Only had the car 2 weeks! I was gong to go shopping now that I have just passed the break-in period! Guess I waited too long...[banghead]

Any suggestions on a detector? Valentine is an obvious choice, but I heard that the new Passport is excellent, too...

Yes the Valentine one is the best out there...but I also here the new Passport is really good too. I would stick with one or the other when it comes to radar detectors.

Yes, I've never owned any "finer" detectors, but those two are always at the top of the list.

I agree, both are great. You'll hear a lot of people that own Valentine's say that nothing compares, but I've found the differences to be pretty insignificant, unless the arrow thing is important to you. If my detector goes off I slow down. It doesn't matter to me weather the cop is behind me, in front of me or off to the side. Some also say the Valentine has a longer range which may be true, but if the 1.5 miles of notice the Escort gives me isn't enough to react, then my reflexes are to poor to be driving.

Coming from someone that has taken defensive driving 8 times in the past for speeding tickets, I can honestly say the Escort has kept me safe. Haven't been pulled over since I got it over 2 years ago.
