Is anyone thinking of using or installing a radar detector in your Model S? I wouldn't call myself a habitually fast driver, but after my test drive, I can see myself getting caught up in the driving experience more than I currently do in my Prius. (Or I may just become a habitually fast driver.) That said, I'd like to know in advance before I drive past a speed trap. Personally, I don't like clutter in my car, and the thought of a wire dangling from the windshield isn't appealing, so I'm considering an installed detector like the Escort Passport 9500ci (https://www.escortradar.com/passport9500ci-details.php).
Has anyone talked to a Tesla rep to see if a Tesla service center would do the installation? Because the anatomy of Model S is unlike any other car, I don't know if I would trust another installer to work on my car.
