I pulled the trigger on a Valentine One. Since it is illegal to use a radar detector here in Quebec, I decided to go for a "rip everything off in a flash" installation so I could pack the radar detector and concealed display in a courier envelope and seal it in case I get pulled over. I also wanted the maximum performance from the detector, so I carefully chose the location of the unit. Here it is (sorry, cellphone pictures):

Black expansed PVC is very easy to cut, glue, and screw in. I made this suspension bracket, and secured it with nylon boats and stainless steel nuts, going through existing holes below the roof lip. Using the Valentine supplied visor bracket, and adding a little neoprene tape, the whole thing feels solid, very stable, and still easy to pull out quickly.

Concealed display was installed using a aluminium corner extrusion and using the two existing screws under the ventilation controls.
