My girlfriend is planning on getting me an Escort 9500ci for Christmas. I've talked to a few installers in the area (near Pittsburgh, PA), and looked at the installation manual. I can't see any reason to dish out a grand to have it installed, so I was wondering how difficult it would be to DIY. I've completely dismantled my previous cars to install electronics, but I've only had my ST3 for a week, and I wanted to get some ideas from the folks on the forum. I need to install the front radar receiver behind the grill, is there any reason that would be problematic? I’ve read that there are active shutters in the grill, but honestly I can’t tell where they are. I was thinking that the front laser units could be mounted near the fog lights, but I’m not sure that the angles would work.

Could anyone offer up any suggestions, comments, etc. about taking off the front fascia, the center console, etc. If anyone out there has installed an Escort 9500ci or Beltronics STiR Plus, I’d appreciate the feedback.

Thanks,
Jaffer

I've got a STI-R plus on the way and I'll let you know how my install goes, I installed a 9500ci on my Challenger and it required a bit of grill modification, in regards to the radar head it looks like I'll be able to fit it off to the side of the ford logo, for the shifters (the company I bought it from threw in a set of ZR4 shifters for free) the closer to the headlights the better but this grill doesn't seem to have any good places to mount them...

Can I assume that you've already installed you system since you posted this almost 6 months ago?
