Congrats on the alp. I have not heard of Audiolines. If you are there during the the install if possible take some pictures and less us know your thoughts on there work. Good to know other companies available to do these type of installs.

Audiolines is one of the installers the local alp distributor uses for his own personal car.
They are going to have my car for 2.5 days. I will try to get progress pictures taken for the hell of it and I will post them as I get them.
We are still a month away from that happening.

2.5 days for that level of install is quite reasonable.

After doing some thinking I decided to go with a uniden R7 , Blendmount mirror tap setup.
I ordered the blendmount BR7-2027 and mirror tap , used a 12.5% off coupon I found online, $234.50 Canadian pesos, that's $174.72 for our American friends, it's on it's way.

Visions Canada is selling refurbished units for $698 Canadian pesos, that's $520 for our American friends.
Or
A brand new one for $775.00 ( price matched) that's $577 for our American friends
I like the extended warranty options visions offeres. Warranty issues will be easier with them and if you don't use your extended warranty, they give you a in store credit.

Ebay had refurbished units after shipping and special handling, import charges and currency exchange, it was going to cost approximately $590.00 Canadian.

I was going to wait to see what theia was going to offer but realized I was not going to spend that kind of money on a radar detector. In the end I realized it was either going to be a R3 or R7.

Hopefully some of my Vancouver members can give me tips on tweaking the vortex settings recommendations even further, for our area.

I'll be picking one up today.

It turns out if you order online with visions and pick it up at the store, there is a savings of $34.90 on that refurbished unit. I bought it for $664.00 Canadian plus taxes.
