Default NEW Escort Passport 9500ci

I have already ordered the Passport 9500ci. I should have it installed by this THursday hopefully. I had a question about the location of the laser shifters and the Radar detector. Attached should be a picturue of the type of car I have. Which is the Mazda 6 2007. Where do you guys think I should install these items? I am thinking about cutting two areas out for the laser shifters in the coners of the black plastic air intake for radiator. And for the radar detector putting that either behind the plastic above the Mazda emblem or the paasenger side fog light cut out. Please let me know in your opinion so I could have the 9500ci work to its maximum potential.

Thank You
Mazda 6

For the jammer heads, I'd favor your proposed location, too. I'd drop an imaginary perpendicular line down from the corner crease of each "eye" of the headlights, and set that as the center-spot for each respective jammer head.

The nose of the 6 does carry a curvature that wraps around to its fenders, so be sure that when you install, instead of following this curvature (thus ending up with the jammer heads angled out towards each side of the roadway), that you instead maintain true/straight down-road alignment.

If you need to use a front plate, I would slightly more bias overlapping protection for it, as well as to take care to address this point-weakness with passive protective layers.

In terms of the RADAR antenna mounting, I would favor the lower fog-light area mounting. However, in that area, you should verify both that there is no vehicle-necessary brake cooling ductwork and, if it is important to you, sufficient weather-protection, before you mount.

Default Alternative Mounting Suggestion

An alternative that I would recommend would be not to cut anything and mount the Shifter ZR4 heads where indicated and then use Veil G4 to eliminate laser reflection from the headlights (the weakspots for laser jammers) which makes it much easier to mount laser jammer heads on the lower side of the vehicle while preserving/enhancing your overall performance.

In this case I'd make sure the heads are pointing straight ahead and not mounted flush to your bumper, which appears to be curve inward towards the outer edges.

See attached picture with markups...
