    Not sure if this is the right subforum but I'm looking for a radar detector/ laser detector/jammer.

    I just picked up an 05 Cadillac CTS-V and this thing is significantly faster than my 10 year old Tahoe.

    OT, what do you recommend? Price isn't of huge concern but ...I did just spend a ton of money on a new car, so I don't want to go overboard.

    Oh, and here are some pics of the car:

    Cheap Radio Shack detector picks up radar at the same distance as a V1 in the testing I've done (cop car running several different radar bands and marking the distance at which the detector went off). I don't think it's worth the extra money really. The arrows are pretty gimmicky too. Does it really matter which direction the cop is? There's a cop near by regardless and it's usually in front of you.

    eh, that guy is a douche bag who probably doesn't know how to drive his car properly or drove it over the edge :noes:

    either way, i have a different engine (Z06!) then he does so I'm not too worried.
