Default 9500ci/V1 install on 04 Acura TL (Videos)

I made so many changes and added so many things to my car figured i would share a video of my install:

YouTube - 2004 Acura TL 9500ci/V1 install

9500ci install is pretty straight forward and the key pad placement was perfect, very easy to adjust. The M3 antenna i wanted mounted in a higher position so i squeezed the ZR4 heads below. Hard to see unless your looking for them.
I had read about 3M tape helping with jamming so i installed it on my front and rear plates. Overall i think i am pretty well covered.

I had a problem with mounting the V1 to the dots above RVM so i made a glass cut out and used heavy double sided tape. I figured it looked cleaner, plus its harder to see through my rear window and completely hides the V1 behind the tint strip.




Also installed a V1 concealed display and remote mute/mode switch that can control the V1 and the CD. To allow for both to be controlled by the mute/mode button i used a regular telephone splitter:

YouTube - CIMG3157.AVI



Best part is i can switch between my V1 and my beloved 9500ix whenever i wish.

The 3M tape definitely helps, but how much is the question.

I believe it to help quite a bit, Radarrob shoots lidar all the time on my car and he always says that 3M tape helps. But that's not to say its only adding another 50ft to my ZR3's jamming capability's. Though it seems more like 1-200ft.
