Hey guys I am looking for a radar detector, anyone know where i can get a good deal on a cobra or something?
if i get a cobra id like the more advanced models since i know all cobras suck but i dont have the money for a valentine 1 or anything
my cobra might suck, but it's saved me from a bunch of tickets since I've had it )
Seriously, getting my radar detector was one of the best idea's I ever had. I bought one from Walmart for like $30. It was a cheap-o shitty cobra, but it did let me know when a cop was in the area. I ended up selling it to my friend for $20, but if you want to know the truth, I ended up stealing a better one from Walmart about 2 weeks after I sold my first one. It was a really kickass cobra one. It retailed for like $160..

WOW, you are SO COOL roll
lol, yea so anyways
which model cobra should i be looking for, which model cobra do you have that is $160?
i had a mid level cobra for the longest time then i took it out and got a ticket ( now i want another one.
Just spend the extra money and get a Valentine 1.
I bought the one off woot for 50 when it retailed for 200. Even if it catches ONE cop, it will be money well spent.
get the valentine 1 or dont get anything at all
woot had one on their wootoff...it was $50.
Too bad you missed out =[
Here's what they had though
Whistler Radar Detector DE-1770
Valentine is the way to go. I believe that is the brand that will pay for your ticket if you get one.
They run about $200.
Or you could just drive the speed limit, where are you in such a rush to get to?
First off, you aren't even old enough to drive.
Second, you go ahead and go the speed limit and let me know how that works for you with people tailgating you.
Especially in NYC.
first there is barely driving in nyc.
driving in ny doing the speed limit is ridiculous i got things to do lol
Yea, in NYC you barley drive. If you do decide to take your car out, your not speeding anywhere. Half the time your stuck at a traffic light making your way down the road. Jersey is where its rough, try driving 65mph on Rt.80 and see what happens...
Yea i think I am going to go ahead and get a Valentine one
if i want to drive the speedlimit ill drive my moms daewoo, besides, i only need it when im at the streets, i drive the speed limit when i commute
$400 is not something im willing to spend! lol

More like 450$ cheapest
its 400 plus shipping
32 bux for 2 day shipping .
its worth it if u figuring in the ticket and insurance rates
no im going to be doing minimum driving when im in college i need something cheapo
Don't invest in it if you're going to be doing minimum driving then. Cheap stuff for radar detectors is as good as no stuff.
I got my cobra for $50 off of woot like a year ago....It's the Cobra XRS9500....You can get it for under $80 pretty much anywhere. Works good if you ask me....

Absolutely no reason to buy a new V1. Buy a used one off eBay. Last I checked they were on 1.8 software - which you can check by plugging in the serial number at http//valentine1.com/upgrades/
I paid ~$185 for a 1.7 when I bought mine - the upgrade site actually suggests not upgrading if you have a 1.7, as it's not cost effective for the improvement in detection.
[quoteb36fd0e392]Upgrade Recommendation While this version is not quite up to todayís V1 standard for Ka, itís almost always good enough, and always better than detectors from other makers. X and K performance is excellent. Upgrading merely to improve radar performance is not cost effective, in my opinion, unless youíre concerned about the POP Mode operating in your area. Upgrading does bring other benefits, including our latest laser warning (front and rear), which outperforms the competitors by a wide margin, LEDs for band identification, and POP Protection. Also, you'll get the new Euro Mode. [/quoteb36fd0e392]
