    I was just going to comment on that, in that white is the worst color for avoiding radar, especially lazer. White reflects back the best signal of all the colors. Black on the other hand absorbs the most, and is the hardest to get a lock on.

    I have a white truck. I'm thinking of trading it off this year for a black one. But, that little Beltronics radar detector I bought a few months back has been a jewel. Saved my ass a few times already. I love it.

    Eh, it hasn't hurt me in 11 months yet, so maybe I'm doing something right.

    White's also a lot easier to keep looking clean. Black is a bitch, especially with all the pollen we have in the air around here.


    Don't hate on my white :D



    What about chrome, how does that reflect radar? (I actually have no idea)

    There were a couple Miata guys polishing their hoods...not as slick as that Chrome M3...but neat. :)


    Mustangs = fantastic platforms upon which to build power.


    :D

    You brought up Chrome:

    I replied talking about guys with VERY reflective cars, such as some miata owners who polish their aluminum hoods (to a mirror-like surface)...I wrote "It's probably not as reflective as the Chrome-Painted M3..."

    Follow now?

    Yes. I follow now that you included a couple more relevant details :thup: See, not being a miata owner, I had no idea wtf you were talking about :D

    That M3 is making me nauseous, yet I can't stop looking at it. Odd.
