Jason, Count me in too... I'll take a set (for front and rear), provided I can mount it in the grill area in front as I don't have the front license plate.

It would be great if you can check and confirm the effectiveness of Lidatek mounted in the gril area vs. K40 in the license plate.

I'm sorry I'm a bit lazy tonight and haven't read all 6 pages of this thread... I might be asking for something you have already addressed.

Thanks for putting this together.

Regards,

Medhi: This topic was covered extensively....try looking for my writeup that I did a page or two back. Just look for the pictures that I posted. That should tell you all you need to know.

After having spoken with the folks at Lidatek, I've come to the conclusion that it's unnecessary to get one in the rear. It's suggested that we put two transponders up front in the grille area. I'm going on Thursday to Lidatek to figure out how the bracket would work.

If you want to get on the group buy...email me at jgtang@seanet.com with your name, phone number, email address, nickname and number of units and extra transponders if you'd like. Most people are getting 1 unit + 1 transponder.

Hey Guys!

I was referred to this forum on the lidatek group buy, by my NSX forum. I've been wanting to get one going for some time now...

I just got my TT NSX and need some protection. my V1 does nothing against laser for me.

I'll take one (front and rear) and so will my buddy.

so mark me down for 2!

email me at: iwantwu@hotmail.com as I will not be monitoring this forum, heck I don't even have a Bimmer anymore...let alone M5!

We're at 47 units now and still going strong! The July 22nd deadline is coming up...Hamann7, I'm not sure if you're on my list. Have you sent me an email yet? jgtang@seanet.com is my email in case you need it.

Have you spoken to Jared yet? I'm going up there tomorrow.

Jason,

I've passed this around and a couple of guys from the Portland Audio Club have shown interest. They should be contating you directly. Let's hope we make it to 80!

I just came back from Lidatek and apparently in order for us to get the 30.1% discount we do need at least 80 units sold. I'm guessing that it'll be discounted at 25% with about 40-50 units sold.

It looks like it's possible for us to mount each of the Lidatek transponders behind the grille without resorting to any cutting. There's plenty of room there. We'd just have to use the bracket (which is provided with the kit) in order to put the unit in the perfect spot. Basically we just have to make sure that the one of the "X" patterns in the grille is at the exact center of the transponder unit.

Would you believe I brought my camera with me but I forgot the memory chip so I wasn't able to take any pictures this time around. Jared says that he'd send me some pictures so I could post on here.

Stay tuned!

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge here. Does this system detect radar at all or just laser? Thank you

It's only for laser.

I'm in. MA state cops just started using laser on I-90 in the past few weeks... the v1 alone isn't cutting it anymore.

E-mailing my info now...
