BEL 550 group buy





following from the earlier thread I phoned comtech today to check out the current price, the standard price is now around 339, but after some discusion if we do a group buy of around 10 we can get them for around £255 +delivery!!! Confirmed so far are myself and 1 friend so with around 8 more orders we can get a good deal.
 


Now winters here, i find absolutley no need for a radar detector, coz i wont be driving like alooney on the wet roads etc.

By the time u get to use it, there will be a new version out for the new technology police are using.

Id wait if i were you.
 
  Skoda Fabia vRS


what new technology ?

although yea, everyone will be driving slower, id still buy one !

detectors dont really come out that often
 


That is a good deal, whatever the weather - Ill take one

How much is the delivery?

Is it worth trying radarexpress.com?

delivery is around £5

this co. are the main supplier in the UK they buy direct from the manufacturer

they supply most of the other retailers in the UK
 


I would consider a road angel or similar personally (GPS Database)

The gatso detection of the radar units is pretty abysmal, and the laser detetector only tells you you have been nabbed, not good as a warning device.

Agree that laser detection is not good unless you get a reading off another car (which is not that likely) before they point it at yours, but detection on my Euro 550 for gatsos, (fixed and mobile) is superb. 99% of the time you have plenty of time to slow down.
 


Valentine 1 is more popular in the US. The manufacturer claims that it can detect even very weak laser signals (i.e. those rebound from the cars in front or even the pavement). MSRP is US$399. But you can buy one from the ebay as low as US$300.

The Car & Driver said it was the best.
 


Im interested. Does the Angel do Laser warnings aswell, if so is it possible to get a similar saving on this? The 550 is £280 at radarexpress, when you add cliosport discount to this, its not much different to what you have been offered!
 


Can someone remind me what the member (Cliosport!) discount is at Radar Express?

OutKa5t where did you get the £285 price from?
 


sorry my mistake. I thought the bit beside it meant you got a further £90 off the label price. Brun is correct the 550 is £359 at radar express.
 


in which case, Im still interested in this group purchase

Any idea if a similar discount is available on the angel?
 


I have the younger brother of the 500, the 300, and I agree with Jas that it is excellent and one of the best purchases I have ever made - it has certainly paid for itself on several occassions and I feel naked when driving someone elses car that doesnt have a detector.

Buy one of these beauties NOW and you can at least have a fighting chance....

LMAO No wonder why I was getting flashed when I was behind him, I thought it was the gear change indicator
 
  Skoda Fabia vRS


there is a radar detector place right near where i live so ive mailed em to see if they can beat comtechs price
 


Ive read the reviews and it sounds good, so put me down for one. But if we can get 20 and at a lower cost it would be even better!!!
 


provisional yes, if I get a new motor next week. I might have to wait until the middle of next month to get the ca$h together :-(

:D hehe nice one mate

Im still interested btw
 


im hoping to get it all sorted ASAP i have a few more intersted people off the forum so we are almost at 10. Will be maybe a week or 2 with any luck. For me the sooner we get them the better, I would be so gutted to get caught before we get them.
