I've been in communication with Escort Radar and they are open to and interested in putting together a group buy. We wanted to see what kind of interest there may be. I'm sure it all depends on the discount, but assuming a reasonable discount would you be interested in one of the items above. If 'other' please post up what you are looking for.

Thanks!

I’ll be getting it prior to spring, group buy or no; but group by would be great!

:)Virginia and the District of Columbia are the two locations in the USA where radar detectors are illegal. Connecticut repealed their ban back in the late 1990s. Doesn't matter, I'm older now and more laid back when driving. I've only had a few speeding tickets in my life.

I'd buy the 9500xi if it would come down to the mid $200 range...but it will depend on what my budget is like at the time of the group buy...

I've already got my 9500ci, love it - so whilst not in need of another, can strongly recommend it, 'specially if there's a discount.

Also interested if it's fairly cheap (under $200 would be ideal). I have no idea what model though...
No speed cameras here in Cali AFAIK so no need for that, just radar and laser if possible.

Right now I'm trying to do a poll to see which unit has the most demand for it. Then Escort was going to try to put together a group buy on the most popular models for us. I'm not sure which unit you are referring to at a price point of under $200. I'm thinking maybe they would give a 20% or so discount. This is still in the works at the moment.

A 9500ix at $400 is 20% off and I am in for one if the deal can be finalized.


ANY OTHER TAKERS???????????????????????

My last ticket was $250, so avoiding one more ticket means the unit only cost me $150 and the price goes down with every other ticket avoided.

Has interest in the group buy been too low to proceed? If so, let me know so I can go ahead on a purchase outside of the forum.

Interested in 9500xi if the discount is good. Any progress with talks? I think if u can list discounted price with like minimum (I.e if 10 then interested buyers then xx$ but if we buy 15 then x$), we can gather enough people for the group buy.

They've indicated they would put together a group buy, but have been a little slow on the reply as I think they've been tied up with some sponsorship things they do. I'll send out another email this weekend to them and see what the latest is.

I am interested in getting one in the near future... how hard would it be to install it in my current SLK then move to a different one?
I am considering purchasing a new car this year and if its difficult to move the unit from one car to another then I would want to wait - otherwise I wouldn't mind playing around with it now.
