The best radar detector is by far the Valentine One, its by far the most out standing detector out there and you can only order it by Valentine.com and no other retailer has the right to sell it.
Passport is right behind it!
But on most SLK's a radar detector is hard to install, for once, a proper radar should only be located under your rear mirrior,at least at that location...and most slk's do not even have the spot/space for it,like other cars...
I used to have a V1, and had it istalled above my rear mirror.
The lower the radar detector placed in the car,the worst it reacts...it should always be placed as high to the rear mirror as possible!
But in todays age 2009...most cops in most states and cities use laser,and the only thing a radar detectors can tell you is,even the valentine,you just got caught by it haha...because a laser gun can be turned off and on...and often the cops have it turned off and turn it on for 2 sec to get your speed, by that time your radar tells you the alarm,but also the cop has your speed...
Any "speeders" and laser / radar fanatics will tell you
Radar and Laser Jammer is the only way to go, but they cost around $1000, at least the good ones!
