Hi,
Has anyone tried or have a fake custom rear taillight enclosure for the interior roof of their 12c? Id like to place a v1 radar detector in there and have the hidden display installed in the interior rear view mirror. Ive seen this in other cars and love the idea, but I cant seem to be able to find one. Worst case, a simple box with clear front and back that can be mounted on the rear window in the cabin would be fine as well. I did this in the nsx and it was great.
I love the v1 arrows and dont think I will be going with laser so this is the best way I can think of to mount it cleanly so i dont have to fumble and put away the radar if pulled over for speeding.
any ideas?
thx,
lc

I always wanted to mount my V1 in a clear bubble on the top of the roof! ...your idea sounds much better. And, no - I don't have any ideas (sorry!)...

Here is a picture of my old NSX with the V1 mod.

The mount for v1 unde rear windshield

What the police sees on the rear windshield. I was gonna cover it with a cover, but didnt get around to it.

So basically I want to do the same. Mount the display in the mirror (easy enough from some vendors). But i cant find a mount for the 12c.

I gave up a long time ago on trick V1 mounts. I hard wire in power and just use suction cups. I have several cars and these fancy mounts are a PITA to switch between vehicles and I really don';t want to buy a bunch of V1s.

On another note, of late the V1 has gotten to be an excellent Audi detector and that's getting old. Anyone got a fix?

Mirror Mount for Radar Detector

****make sure u select right radar detector when using the discount link..friend10 can be typed in when checking out**

I have used this company for really nice stealth mounts for a portable detector mounts. You can get them wired in too as i will so there will be no wires. I like it and can move between vehicles

I just order mine for the 12c. Will post pics when it arrives.

Here is a discount code.

I was told these are the mounts for the detectors...they dont have a automated system yet since this is a new product.

If you use a V1 the mount you want is the BV1-2104.
If you use a Passport max you need the BMX-2104, and if you use any other Escort/Beltronics detector, you need the BBE-2104.
