Just DS stickers, similar to the apple stickers you get with any Apple purchase.

I didn't get any stickers with my Redline and they never sent me my STi driver hat when I bought it a few years ago, I am still bitter .

Great RD.
Is it beating it on all bands or one in particular? If your doing 2/5/8 RDR-off then the STi-R > Redline
ooor you could just have a really hot redline

I'm going to be interested to see how much of a boost the redline really has over the STi driver. There are software differences and higher testing standards (in other words the better manufacturer variances become redlines) but what kind of extra range that equates to I'm curious.

They are both about even on K band, but RL seems to have a fairly significant advantage over the STi-R on KA band. Sometimes it is 5-10 seconds. I may have a hot RL and I am not going to complain about it.

The one real time that I saw the STi-R beat the RL was against 35.5 coming back from TX just past Shreveport. It detected the LEO coming out of a long winding curve before the RL by about 3-5 seconds. It would appear that the STi-R has a little wider field of view.

It could also be that the STi-R is mounted low on my front spoiler and the RL has a RVM set in the car allowing it to get a first look. Jury is still out.

This seems to be the case with my 9500ci as well over the Redline.

We have similar cars. I may try and move the antenna on my unit up to see if it improves it's radar capability.
