Default Good laser detector?

I have done some more mods to my car(listed in signature)and I was trying my car out on the highway, not too much, just wanted to try it, and I got caught going 92 on the highway. I know I know its not good to speed and all, but I barely do it, just wanted to see the high end power of the new motor. I was on the highway passing over a bridge, and I could see a cop stopped ontop of the bridge. I didn't think anytihng of it, I kept going. Before I passed under the the bridge and looked up to get a closer look I noticed it was a cop. I realized it must of been a trap. About a 1/4 mile later I see a different cop car parked on the side of the road. Offcourse he pulled me over right away. One cop records the speed from the bridge where you woudln't think he could do anything, then his buddy that is on the highway pulls you over. Some speed trap huh. He said he used laser radar on me. Anyone know of a good laser detector? I was reading that the V1 is the best against laser, but want some more feedback. thanks

Sorry to hear about the ticket.
Youll get 1000 different opinions on which is the 'best'.
I personally like my V1

with laser, you are basically screwed. usually by the time u detect it, you are busted. Escort 8500 x50($300) and the V1(400) are the best out there. V1 does have the arrows for radar which would be nice, but i have a 8500 and it works great and does have laser detection also. i dunno if its still going on, but there was a sale on the 8500 from Dino, try searching. i bought one from him and paid a bit less than the usual price.

Escort also offers a laser shifter... which is legal... but it only works if they tag your front licence plate (if you have one like we do here in TX =( ....)
I miss my 99 TA!!!!!
