Mine was $800. Dual antennae, FR and RR bumper mounted, concealed display.

It is. Still no match for my Valentine 1, which was 1/3 the price of the K40. I
sold my previous Audi with the K40 installed in it and never lamented that radar
detector. Long live the V1!

My experience was good. It's just the Valentine 1 is so much more radar for the
money. Besides, it's the only unit on the market (methinks Mike had it patented)
which shows the direction to the bogey and this feature alone makes even
considering other brands pretty much a moot point.
