$500 to spend and can't decide.

Ok I got $500 to spend and cannot decide on what to spend it on.

1. Radar Detector

2. Axle back exhaust (Borla, Gibson)

3. Diablo Intune with hemifever tuning

Which way would you guys go?

My jeep is a 2012 Limited 2WD with hemi and a volant CAI.

Forget that list. Take your wife and girlfriend out for dinner.

The wife takes top priority and gets dinner all the time so no worries there.

Paid 30K down on the Jeep and with 1.9% financing there isn't much interest on a $221 payment.

Though I'd go for the escort. Wait until Father's Day weekend to buy - they inexplicably go on sale around that time.

Re: $500 to spend and can't decide.

None of the above.

Radar Detector - Just about useless in areas that use laser (LIDAR). You'd be better off with a jammer.

Axel Back Exhaust - Noise maker only, no HP gain...if anything you lose low-end torque. You own an SUV, not a race car.

Engine Tune - Depends...I hope you're not talking some garbage chip. A custom "Protune" on a dyno is the only worth while engine tune.

Personally I'd bank that $500 towards your next set of tires.

I disagree re: the jammer. They fit very different purposes. Neither is a sub for the other. In areas with curvy roads, laser is next to useless for the police, so a detector will serve better. In city driving, laser is never used, so a detector is better. For highway driving I'd still prefer the detector if I had to pick one.
