Valentine one makes some of the most accurate radar/lasar detectors around. They might not look like anything fancy but that's to deter potential thieves. It's rather expensive but worth it in my opinion.

I think everyone understands your question. The answer is, you won't find anything. You are presumably in the city center. There are no shops that sell radar detectors there. Focus on buying beer, schnitzel, and maybe go drool over a few BMWs at the Weld.

I want it so bad even if there is a place a bit far away i could take a train or a bus to get there

My country decided to fit hundreds of radars on freeways recently speed limit is 90 km/hr so i cant stand it lol

V1 is about 20 years out of date. Good range and detection, but the inability to lock out false signals makes it more of a hassle than it's worth. I switched to a 9500ix and then a fully integrated 8500Ci 5 years ago and never looked back (V1 arrow pun intended).

Yeah people say v1 detects everything but a lot of false alerts .

However someone i know has a v1 and he says its extremely reliable but at very fast speeds it detects the radar a couple of seconds ahead.

I love the v1 and that is very sensitive. As well you can program it to cut some false alerts. Also they just deployed SAVVY which makes the permanent install and muted alerts below set speed a great addition. Just bought the SAVVY to put V1 back in my new 435i.
