    Radar detector hardwire headliner solution?

    Howdy fellers. Long time lurker, first time poster. Drivin' a 2012 ice silver WRX limited hatchback. Having a blast and so looking forward to winter (sitting here in Minnesota). My only real complaint is the bloody spiders that have set up shop in the EVAP system. Car is in the shop for the third friggin time in a month or so.

    But I digress... got a question for you all. I've got a hard wired 9500ix mounted to the rearview mirror (standard, low tech mirror). The wire coming down from the headliner to the detector is driving me crazy... doesn't look clean at all. Are you familiar with a cover or some other creative solution? It is like looking for a bloody needle in a haystack for a solution online. Thought I'd pick your guys brains.

    Thanks much for you time!

    Can't help you with your question directly, but is there a way you can mount it over the mirror? That's where my V1 is mounted, and there's only a very small section of cable (2-3") visible (the rest is tucked under the headliner from the A-Pillar).
