  1. Valentine 1 installation I was looking for a Cayman S DIY to hardwire a Valentine 1 radar detector without running the wire across the headliner, down the A pillar to the fusebox. Having not found one, one is created here for a 2008 Cayman S. 1. The first step is to use a plastic putty knife and to remove the dome light. The light has two tabs in the front, and two metal "springs" in the rear of the light. You can pry the light from the right hand side (passenger side). 2. The next two photo's show the dome light removed. This pic shows the two plastic tabs which are in the top of the light (facing rear). These two tabs hold the top in place and are put in place first when replacing the dome light later on. 3. Here is the other bottom of the dome light (facing windshield) showing the two metal springs which hold the dome light in place along with the tabs mentioned above. 4. Here is the dome light hanging free by the wires. 5. Next a small pilot hole is drilled to place a sheet metal screw for the ground wire. There are areas within the dome assembly to place the ground neatly inside. 6. Testing all the wires in the dome assembly, none of which are ignition-switched, the solid blue wire was chosen for the hot connection. This wire is always on so the radar detector must be turned on and off on the unit. T-Taps were used as supplied with the Valentine 1. 7. Since there is little room in the dome assembly to hide the Valentine plug which supports the ground, hot, and allows the "Cat-5 like" cable, the plug was placed just below the headliner behind the rear-view mirror. A small velcro square is supplied with the unit which was used so the plug does not rattle while driving. Pics showing from inside and through the windshield. 8. All the excess wires are stuffed into the headliner. Be patient and you will get them all in. Set the dome light back in place, tabs in first (towards rear), followed by pushing up the back with the springs. The unit will snap in place. Here are pics of the finished job.

  3. I had an 02 BMW M3 with SMG as my daily commuter. I loved the SMG. As a regular daily ride it allowed me to enjoy a cup of coffe during long commutes. However, for my weekend 911 4S cabrio, a stick is what I decided on.
