Something took out one of my Blinder M20 laser jammer heads

During my 400-mile plus driving circuit this weekend to test out the new Whistler Pro 78 and XTR-690 radar detectors, my Blinder M-20 which is installed on my silver 540i developed a fault and its diagnostic circuitry kicked-in alerting me to the fault.

I was able to get Blinder Extreme on the phone on Saturday and Leon (aka, the Blinder Dude) was gracious in helping me determine where the fault may lie. Examining the front of my vehicle, I noticed that one of the heads apparently was knocked loose out of its screws to the bottom portion of the Bimmer's front fascia. I can only imagine something struck the head and may have damaged the electronics.

Up until now, my Blinder M-20 has provided flawless performance. Leon, being the cool guy he is, offered a replacement of the damaged head with a new Blinder M-25 -- since the M-20 has been superseded by the newer Blinder M-25 and Blinder M-20 parts are scarce.

It is a real pleasure doing business with a company, like Blinder, that really cares about its customers and products, alike, especially when you consider that the unit is already two years old.

I am looking forward to installing this more powerful successor to the Blinder Xtreme M-20 and M-40 series even though I never received a speeding ticket with it and Veil running in combination.

It's still nice to know, though, that one coat of VEIL is still going strong after all these years. The total cost of ownership is definitely lower with this solution, no pun-intended.
