ur car looks great and the pics came out awesome
Once was radar and twice by laser front end, it appears that the ZunSport grills have enough space in the mesh to allow good line of sight. Proper angle positioning of the laser shifters behind the mesh I am told is extremely critical for good line of sight. This has been discussed on several 9500 blogs. I won't disagree that there has to be some lost of effectiveness, but it has proven to be very little for me personally. Thanks for you comments.

Info for you

From Cliff at Laser Interceptor:

RULE #1 when installing any LCM, "Stealth The Car, NOT the Install!" NEVER install sensors behind anything, including mesh grills. They must be completely unobstructed to function properly. If you cannot touch your sensors to clean them with a cloth and soapy water, they are NOT properly installed!

Makes perfect sense to me. Can't be that tough to move them, maybe a bit extra wire spliced in to make it easy.

I had read and considered this blog prior to my install. There are many and varied opinions in this regard. In the end it is really a personal preference, I chose to install behind the ZunSport grills and it has proven to work for me and I am extremely happy with the protection outcome from my install. BTW, I can clean my senors with a cloth and soapy water through the mesh, tight but can do...
