A repeat client from Wildwood contacted JML Audio in St. Louis, Missouri, about a custom installed laser and radar detector for his 2017 BMW 750i. In our usual fashion, we found a time to meet with the client at our facility so we could look over the vehicle and discuss upgrade opportunities. During our consultation, several other topics came up that would make his BMW more enjoyable to drive. We worked up a proposal that he liked, so time was set for him to drop off the vehicle.
BMW 750i Radar Installation
If you are going to truly enjoy a performance vehicle like a BMW, a custom installed laser and radar detector just makes sense. Here at JML Audio, we are passionate about this category. We build our systems to offer factory-looking fit and finish coupled with the ultimate in performance. For this reason, we chose the K40 RL360i. It is unique because it offers front and rear radar receivers. This gives you much better information as to where the radar is being shot at your vehicle. A total of four expert-series laser defusers were designed into the system: two in the front and two in the rear.
Laser Defusers Offer Real Protection
Let’s say you are driving up the road and your car, truck, or SUV and a vehicle in front of you gets shot by a laser gun. You don’t get an alert as it is a beam of light, not a radio wave. So, a system that only incorporates a laser receiver is a waste of time. When our defusers sense a laser signal, they immediately fire back powerful beams of light that the laser gun doesn’t understand. The device gets no reading on your speed. You now have precious seconds to slow down and avoid a ticket.
JML Installation is a Step Above the Competition
The single most important aspect of a custom installed laser and radar detector is the performance. Here at JML Audio, every aspect of the installation is designed to extract the maximum performance and reliability. Our radar receivers are bolted into the metal substructure of the BMW on our in-house machined metal brackets. They are strategically placed to allow maximum sensitivity while making them completely hidden from the naked eye. The four laser defusers are placed parallel to the ground and aimed straight ahead for optimum protection. Even their placement left to right is a strategic measurement designed to offer complete coverage for the whole width of the 750i. Every connection is soldered and covered in heat shrink tubing. All wiring is loomed with the same material used in the BMW factory.
Interior Controls and Indicators
Inside the vehicle, the system is designed to look factory-installed while also being ergonomically correct. The Expert controller was flush-mounted into the center console in front of the cupholders, in easy reach of the driver. The alert indicators were flush-mounted into the shroud that goes around the instrument cluster. When a front alert happens, the left indicator flashes. In the event of a rear alert, the right indicator flashes. A hidden speaker also gives audible alerts of any threat.
Final Testing and Quality Control
Another JML Audio procedure is testing the actual system. We are one of a handful of dealers in the country that has both a radar and laser gun that can be used to test the operation of the system to determine it is functioning properly. No vehicle will leave our facility until it has gone through our rigorous quality control procedure.
Stage Three Environmental Package
During our consultation with the client, we discussed ways to lower the road noise so driving it would be more enjoyable. The client opted to have our stage three environmental package applied to all four doors, significantly reducing outside noise.
Heat Reflective Window Film
Another improvement added to this BMW 750i was our complete heat reflective window treatment. Every piece of glass on the vehicle, including the windshield and sunroof, were treated. This results in maximum heat reduction and UV protection. It also added a classy look that complimented the beautiful white paint.
Paint Protection and Full-Service Detail
To keep this BMW looking beautiful for years to come, our paint protection film was applied to the full front end, including the headlights. The rocker panels and rear bumper were also treated, resulting in a package that will keep this vehicle looking new for years to come. A final improvement was made by adding our full-service detail, making the interior and exterior look showroom fresh.
Custom Installed Firearm Safe
The final upgrade in this amazing car was a steel firearm safe. Our team made custom steel brackets to bolt it into the rear passenger side of the trunk, giving the driver a safe way to transport firearms over long distances.
A Delighted Client
After the team was finished all aspects of the installation, it was time for the client to pick up his BMW. When he arrived, our team went over all aspects of the installation in detail. We showed him how to properly operate the radar detector. Needless to say, he loved it, marveling at the factory-looking fit and finish of all our work.
