Boston area radar detector install day?

Soooooo does anyone want to have an install day and help me hardwire my radar detector? I am going to be purchasing a Escort 9500ix from Turner Motorsports (they have 20% discount on Escort items) and would like some assistance hardwiring it to my e92. I have read some DIY V1 guides but didn't find any Escort ones. Let me know.

I compared them both and to me it just made sense to go with the 9500ix.

I saw a lot of these types of reviews:

"...The modest first effort compared only the Escort 9500ix and Valentine One. Three assistants and two cars circled an 87.4-mile-long urban loop four times, mapping the radar sources and false alarms. The final score was V1: 51 false alarms, Escort Passport 9500ix: 0.

Then we took both on a 1,470-mile freeway blast, Phoenix to Little Rock, Arkansas. Each accurately reported all of the 21 police radars and two lasers encountered en route. The Valentine One also barked 111 false alarms, the Escort 9500ix only nine..."
