Arrow Alekshop: Valentine 1 Radar Mirror

It's time to hide your expensive radar unit and get clean, stealth, OEM look Make your car look unique and protect your investment !

We offer custom build OEM BMW Rear View mirrors with integrated Valentine One radar units.

Each mirror comes with the "Mute" button, Light sensor, and all needed hardware to get it installed.

The price is $550+ shipping to modify the rear view mirror and headrest (V1 main unit, V1 concealed display, rear view mirror, rear headrest - not included) .

To make things more convenient for you, we can offer a spare rear view mirror for the time your mirror is being modified.



Mirror with no Homelink / no Compass





Mirror with Homelink / with the Compass



Please contact us if you have any questions

Thank you,
Aleks.

To make sure that performance of the mounted into the rear headrest V1 unit wasn't affected, we decided to test it side by side:

Here is a video to compare Valentine 1 mounted into the rear headrest versus V1 unit mounted to the windshield.

Awesome setup! I need up update our V1's software I think, but I'd be interested in the near future. How does the install in the headrest look? That'd be my only reservation there really.

There are no issues with the placing V1 inside the headrest. It works very well.

We just recently installed V1 on 2013 X5M with Quad LI setup and it came out very nice as well!

^^ Not the Magnum, the STiR, or the Escort 9500. The magnum does not have the capability for a remote display.

You wouldn't happen to know of any shops in Central FL that could do this type of install?

This is one of the coolest mods I have seen in a long time! Does it work with the automatic headlight feature? And on M models?

I have a K40 system in my M, but frankly, I'm not that happy with it. I like my escort in my previous vehicle better - it was more sensitive and more accurate.

We can try locating a shop for you if you are interested in ordering this setup.

Installation isn't very hard just really time consuming.

By installing this setup you won't loose any factory options and everything will work same way it's right now.

Thanks,
Aleks.
