Default 8500 x50 "Euro"

Hello! Can anyone says, is the difference between 8500 x50 and 8500 x50 "Euro" only in software? Thanks.

Yes, the software that is installed in the Euro version is the only difference.

Who's modifying the X50 writing the Euro software? Who developed the software?
it seems to be a bit better then the RX65E on both K and Ka band against some radars and much better then US version. That's impressive considering they are all based on the same M4 platform.
I know that Target automotive is modifying the RX65. I cannot find any reference to Escort on their website. They are only selling Bel detectors.

Our European detectors are designed specifically for radar equipment being used in Europe and Australia. I do not recommend using these in North America.

We develop the software for our products and I am not aware of Target Automotive modifying our detectors.

No, we will not convert an X50 USA to a X50 Euro with the tune-up offer.

OK.
Is there any possibility to convert the firmware to EURO - another offer, another price, another country, trade-in, etc...

No, you have to purchase an X50 Euro to get an X50 Euro.
