I also have a V1 a few years old (that was picking up the blind spot monitoring). I tried several mounting locations, but it didn't seem to make a difference.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

Re: Adaptive Cruise = Useless Radar Detector?

Since the blind spot warning system uses K band, I don't see how changing detector brands could help. Threads on other forums indicate that Escorts have the same issue with K band safety systems.

I suspect it is the blind spot detection.

Generally, the lighting is much better with HIDs than halogens. Once I owned a car with HIDs, I will never go back to halogens.
