Help: Escort 9500ci e9(3) Install

Thanks to Scott over at radar-mirror.com. I have a badass new infused mirror and the escort 9500ci system. I have searched for 3 days for a decently detailed install for a e90/e93 bmw m3. If you can please help me out and lead me in the right direction. Much love!

There's a how-to on radar-mirror's website. Pretty much just pop off the old mirror and wire in 12v. Do you have a rain sensor?

Yes. I am pretty sure I can install the mirror, I was in question about the full install.

I see. well theres a good bit of lee-way from car to car. Placement of the radar sensor isn't super critical as long as it's parallel to the ground. I'd go for behind one of the kidneys. GPS antenna just needs no metal above it, so under the dash or package shelf is fine if you want it in the car, otherwise near the shark fin or decklid works as well. I'd go fully custom and route it how you want to.

One thing I didn't realize is that it didn't come with a rear sensor anymore (mine is a brand new system.) Do you happen to know why this is...won't I be screwed if someone is behind me now?
