Valentine One Stealth Setup in E55 AMG (The Godfather's setup)
This is my Valentine one Stealth setup in my W211 E55 AMG. See the video to see what I've got! Here is the video of the scanner in action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPQB0bEeKsY
You can buy the custom slim display directly from the maker on eBay under his screen name "agravic"
W211 E55 CUSTOM EXHAUST TAKE OFF
This is ONE Autosport's 2003 E55 AMG. The resonator was removed and a custom xpipe was put in place. Each muffler was opened and gutted of fiberglass packing, but all metal walls were retained. This is the end result. Beastly for sure! All done for about $300. Enjoy!
E55 AMG Supercharger Whine mod
To get your E55 AMG (2003-2006) to whine when the Supercharger is engaged, simply remove the black plastic cover that is attached to the hood underneath the hood vent grill. It's not SUPER loud, but much more audible than before! Here's a link to MBworld to show you were it is:

Valentine 1 -v- Arizona DPS Photo Radar Van
http://www.GPSdetector.com for further info on GPS camera detectors.
OK, so Redflex have possibly come up with a real game changer. Photo radar vans that cannot be detected before 300 feet, and that take your picture at 200 feet. Yes, that means 100 feet reaction time and slowing distance.
If your radar detector cost you less than $400 - time to change approach. Mark locations on a Cheetah GPS speed camera detector.
Important info for V1 users:
This video is not meant to be a criticism of the V1 in any way. The point of the video is not to show how little warning the V1 gives for this new threat. Rather the point is to show that if a detector as good as the V1 only gets this much range, imagine how bad all the others must be!!!
The V1 is still one of the best out there and that's why we use it (every day!) In fact, this individual V1 unit is "famously" good on K Band. It was tested by GOL (www.GuysofLidar.com) and outperformed all others on K Band. You should consider it a "juiced" unit for K band performance. That's why we chose it for these test runs against this new K band threat.
80% of radar detectors on the US market do not even register an alert for these new camera vans until you are past them and have a ticket. This is a game changing radar camera system. It is completely different to the radar you encounter in police cruisers.
In this video, the V1 is mounted lower for ease of filming. We did have the V1 mounted high on lots of runs against this camera van system. It makes no difference whatsoever against this type of radar unit. One of the runs was shown in the vid at 3:08. The Video Thumbnail even shows it mounted high.
The point of showing the C100 in the same video is not to say it's better than the V1. It is a completely different type of product. We're not saying, "You should have the C100 instead of a V1." We're saying, "You should consider the C100 as well as your V1." The two units are designed to work together and complement each other; the V1 for blistering performance and arrows; the C100 for fixed camera alerts, marked locations, well known speed trap sites, false alarm suppression of the V1's false alarms, etc, etc.
The C100 does everything the V1 doesn't, and vice-versa.
Cheetah make a Radar Detector Interface for their GPS detector that plug into the V1 and make the two products work as one complete system, giving you the best of both worlds. In effect, you can "9500ix" your V1 If you don't know what this means, then you definitely need to contact us! :-)

Valentine 1 Got Owned by Indiana State Police Instant On Ka Band in the Fog
I was going to work this morning and got hit with some Instant On in the fog, since it was foggy I was not going super fast. This is the stuff nightmares are made of a Indiana State cop hitting you with instant On before before you can even see him. I also got a J-out on the Valentine 1 right at the very end of the alert this is the first one I have gotten since I turned POP OFF.
5th Gear Radar Detectors
*EDIT* Jan 09 . This video is so old and the equipment in this video is SO outdated. The game has changed. There are options that actually work damn good now.
Test radar and laser jammers
and I know the audio is screwed up but I found it that way.
Valentine One V1 Radar Detector vs 2 New York State Troopers Running Ka - Busts another car!
Driving on the Taconic State Parkway in Columbia County, New York. This is a neat video, catches two troopers running at a known speed trap and catching one car that had flown by me well after my V1 started alerting. Later in the video, the rear radar also goes off, which would have been the second trooper either checking the speed or nabbing another driver. Recorded with an HTC Thunderbolt cell phone, not in HD though (oops!). My car is a 2009 Jetta TDI and the V1 is a three year old 3.863 with sensitive Ka enabled.
