    The 9500ci is installable behind the nose cone. There are a number of threads describing the installation with photos. Search advanced 'Escort' and there are 6 threads to read.

    Welcome,,,, it's almost your first post!!

    Beltronics STi-R mounted in the upper grille, along with laser shifters. I don't trust putting it behind the nosecone has the same sensitivity as out in the open. Nor do I have any idea how laser would make it through the nosecone.

    Totally agree...no way you could mount the laser receiver/shifters behind the opaque plastic nose cone. My shifters are set into the grill with a clear and level view of the road ahead. eberyve4.jpg
