Has anyone installed a Radar Detector/ Laser Defuser in a C7 ? I cant find an installer that wants to take a chance with the wiring of a C7 ! :confused:

I put in the K-40 system. They have done several C7's by several installers. Check out their website: www.k40.com. I had installed the radar detectors and the g5 laser defuser. Very clean install, all parts are hidden well, with only two small LED lights mounted on the steering column.

On the front grill are the laser defusers and they blend in very nicely.

I had a Escort 9500 ci installed. Awesome detector but installer broke a brake sensor and put my car out of commission for 10 VERY long days!! Buyer beware!!!

I have used the Laser defuser on other cars in the past. How good is the Radar part of this setup? Many false alarms ? Is it connected with GPS like the Escort 9500 ?

The K40 has a manual type user GPS. When you get to a known spot of a speed trap you push a button on the remote and it remembers to alert you when you drive to the same spot again.

My k40 was $2900
Forgot to mention that I added a second defuser due to the angle of the front grill, that was an added $500, you can do 1 but I wanted to make sure I had full coverage.

So if you only go with 1 defuser it brings it down to $2400.

My install did not cut into the grill at all as they were very professional and were able to use ties to hold them in place.

That sounds about right, but had tinting and some other work done, so just a guesstimate...
1999 for the 9500ci...
Flawless install...had the display mounted right next to the mirror on left side and the
controller placed in the front cup holder...totally stealth!
Install done by Imagine Audio, Cherry Hill, NJ...great crew!
