it's not two radar detectors. he just has a 2nd display hooked up that's concealed down in that tray. and this is also posted in the wrong forum.

Oops - mods can you move to the correct forum?

S2000man01 is right, it is just the concealed display ... so it blanks out the lights on the main unit.

yes I too was wondering this. Unless this is not a U.S. version, this can't be an 05 SE. Where is the leather wrapped steering wheel? The power mirrors? The body colored door handles? And of course the gauges. Something is fishy here. Its a nice car, but I don't think its an 05 SE.

Nice looking car. Check out the Canada East section of the forums for some local people and information. Located near the bottom of the forums mainpage (scroll down )

It is a Canadian SE. It is one step up from the base EX. The only thing it adds is a CD player, power locks with remote, and AC. I didn't want the wing or care for leather (it is a civic after all... if I needed all that maybe I would look at the Acura 1.7EL

I really like it either way... Thanks for all the great comments. When the snow is gone I will put up some pics with the rims. I hope it looks ok since I am not lowering it...

JP375 - the valentine is simply the best. The one you see is the new v1.8. I have also used a Cobra ESD, Passport from way back - and the new Escort Passport 8500 X50.

The valentine falses more, but it is just because it is THAT more sensitive. If you are going to buy a detector, get the V1. Don't waste your money on anything else. However, if you want to play this game you have to get the Lidatek L-30 - if you get dinged by laser, the valentine or any other detector will basically warn you that you must pull over soon!

allmotor - got the stick!

wrussi, what is with you guys... why would I come on here and lie? get a life...

Go to this link: http://www.honda.ca/Honda/BuildYourH...cCoupe&yr=2005

And tell me if there is an SE or not. I bought the SE, I think I would know. It written on my ownership papers...

Correct .. Canadian SE = US VP

And the American SE = Canadian Reverb if I'm not mistaken
ie :
US DX = Canadian DX
US VP = Canadian SE
US LX = Canadian LX
US SE = Canadian Reverb
US EX = Canadian Si
US Si = Canadian SiR
