Hey I saw over at RD.net you posted this below, about you felt the Diode based jammers were in your opinion better for rear protection
You did mention a 4 head Blinder but lets see through testing with a ultralyte against a 2 head blinder, if your opinion is questionable?? I would like to challenge you on this. Here was your posting below: You Quoted:

Re: Single-head LI on my rental. Hmmmm...
For rear protection, I am very, very pessimistic.
I currently think that only a dual-head, laser-diode based setup, such as a dual LI (which also has the specific advantage of having dedicated "rear" units, the Slim heads, configured for rear-on threats' characteristics) or dual LPP, is a viable defense.
Either that, or devote a M45, a four-head Blinder, setup, *JUST* for the rear.
To me, due to the fact that the rear of the vehicle is so hard to protect, it's either go all out, balls-out, or go home.
In having "some" protection in the back, although one can argue that it's much better than having none at all, my worry is that it will lead you into complacency, and in being less cautious about things such as blind on-ramps, bridge-berms, etc., cause you to receive a citation where, normally, with your heightened awareness of such potential threats, that you would not have.
The lack of consistent, reliable, rear defense, in a TRUE JFG manner, is something that I am most pessimistic about.

I have tested a LI 2 head rear on "rsatman" mercedes at the athens test we did. Its numbers were similar to the video I did below on the Blinder M25 J15 rev on my honda. My heads are very close together, where rsatmans were not. I got punch-throughs at 111 feet and 174 on the LI. This was using my gun. rsatman wanted to see how well it would do with his heads level from the rear. Also note his mercedes is dark candy apple red and has less back surface than my accord. We never did get to film that test because we were all ran off by a cop that day. But the blinder I have on my car had identical numbers. You really only need 2 heads for a small to midsize sedan.

I believe with veil applied on my tail lights, that there would be most likely JFG from start to finish. So in my testing conclusion the LED Blinder heads were more than enough protection against a rear threat. Also with the Veil G4 applied the results would be better. Thats my .02 cents on that. What yours TSi+WRX????
