Congrats on the new ride. I test drove an '11 X5M in Monte Carlo/Bamboo this past weekend. Beautiful car! I just didn't fall in love with the Blue/Beige color combo. I don't think I could live with it daily...I'm too conservative! If anyone wants an brand new '11 with 70 miles for less than invoice, give me a PM.

Talking It's Here!

I got it yesterday & LOVE IT! So all in all it was less than 1 month from ordering to delivery. I'm being careful due to break in but that M-mode is incredible. I can't believe the pick-up in this SUV!

Gotta hardwire the Escort 9500ix & install the laser jammers next week cause I can already tell I'm going to need them.

Looks BEAUTIFUL! What brand of jammers are you using?
If you could, please take a few key pics of your install. I'll be hardwiring a V1 in combination with a Laser Interceptor Dual Head unit (front only).

Thanks. I have the LI Duals as well. I'll take pics once it's done but I'm having it done so my pics won't include the detail install since i won't be doing it myself.

Are you doing the install yourself? I would but don't know about how to route the wires back into the cabin.

I went back to Minneapolis today to look at colours. I looked at a 2010 X5M in Carbon/Black and a 2012 X5M in Alpine White/Black. The alpine white was sharp. I think that is my colour combo, and if I can get the guts up, that might be my car...still thinking...

I did the V1 install in my wife's 135 vert last weekend and it went fairly smoothly. As for running the cords into the cabin from the engine bay for the LI...that will take a bit of research and exploration!

Yeah both carbon & alpine are great looking colors. I just went w/ MC because it's a rare color so it stands out from all other X5s.

So ended up hardwiring my radar detector myself yesterday. Turned out great. I don't think I'll tackle the LI install though.

J,
Here is the latest picture of my LI mounted. I think I sent you the wrong one. I had the front receivers mounted below the bumper. Just below the parking sensors. I had them moved to the location in this picture. It is the spot that Cliff recommended and I liked the look of it better.

Sorry for the confusion.

I like that location, but honestly, I don't think I would have put them there to begin with either! You don't realize how deep the front bumper fascia is until you see the jammer heads mounted back in the depths...

Yeah I was concerned about how far back the sensors would be if mounted in that upper grille too. Originally I was planning on mounting them in the lower grille as seen by the red marks in the attachment. That location would have no "blockage" from the bumber but sounds like it's a bit low although Cliff from LI said in real world scenarios that location would probably work too & considering that most laser is shot from a distance of 500ft or greater the "area" of the laser beam would be covered by that lower location as well.
