Just finished this for a 997 owner so I thought I'd share a few pictures, this is the display unit for the Escort 9500ci radar detector / laser shifter installed in an OEM Porsche mirror. The mirror is manual dimming as the auto dimming Porsche mirror does not respond well to modification.

Looks very well done. Mind posting the cost of this feature?

This was $425 for everything except the display which was supplied by the owner (as it comes with the kit). Cheaper still if you supply the mirror.

Nice Job as usual Chris!

Question, do you do color LED swaps on V1 remote displays? If so, can you PM me the price to do 2 of them?

Thanks in advance!

Nice work. That is impressive. How long does it take you to mod the mirror?

It is hard to say, the fastest has been overnight where I received a mirror priority and shipped it out the same day, the longest up to 4-5 weeks. The things that impact it are getting hold of the mirror (whether yours or an alternate, some steps that need to be outsourced and need scheduling and of course my time (I make these in my "spare" time.

For a fairly common mirror like the Porsche ones I usually recommend buying a mirror to modify, they are only $70-80 new so I can order one, modify it and ship it without you having to be without the one in your car, the cost can also be minimized somewhat as I can take your old mirror in exchange as it will come in for the next person along. If I have to order one (I ordered a 996 mirror yesterday) it typically takes 5-10 days to get here depending on whether the dealer has it in stock or has to order it in.

So, in short... it varies. Once I know what you want and which mirror I can usually give you a pretty firm estimate. The nice thing about both the V1 and Escort installs is that the system can be installed and fully operational then the mirror added later if necessary.

I tried a group buy a while ago but it didn't gain any momentum, if we can get a few people together then I can discount things as I save by doing them in lots rather than one offs.

Chris.
