Rear Laser Interceptor Install

I'm looking to pull the trigger on a laser interceptor, not too sure if I should get a dual or quad. For those who have seen a laser interceptor install, what's the best way to mount the rear jammers and run the wiring?

Rear laser jammers are rare for sure. In all the testing I have done I was the only one running rear jammers. that being said it is harder to protect the rear of your car than the front due to the vertical surfaces. I think most jammer users don't bother with the rear because rear hits are more rare.

My LI's are mounted beneath the taillights using the LI brackets. I'm mulling over moving them under the trunk lip where I have seen them on other E90's. Plus my son has already crashed into them twice and bent the brackets, they do stick out a bit. Under the trunk lip is a bit more stealthy and aesthetic.

I think that helped me make a decision. I'll probably go with the BMW Edition duals.

Where did you mount your power switch? I put mine under the dash, but I may reposition the switch to see the power status.

Wait a sec, just to clarify, you have four LI jammers up front and two in rear? Total of six jammers?

have you had your set up tested? 4 LI's on the front should be pretty bullet-proof. One of the guys on RDF had 4 on his Acura TL and it did the best in testing.
