How's the best way to run power to it? I'm assuming you have to tap into something which only has power when the ignition is on and not straight to the battery.

How hard was it to get the front cables through the firewall? I'm not even worried about mounting the switch right now, I can do that with friends once I get back to Indiana. I'd just like to have it up and running by then.
Maybe Ken or Gary can chime in when they see the thread since they have already installed them. I'm hoping it is easier than 9 hours as well.

But the $1500 to protect me against things I shouldn't be doing (and probably wouldn't with wife and dog in the car) is enough to pay for the exhaust and intake I'd like to add to the car next.

Yeesh - life's tough choices (aka. first-world problems).

Yup, it is a bit rough if you have to buy a radar detector as well. But if you wanted to save a bit you could always go with the BMW LI Duals for 500$ and then a detector for 400$ to make your total 900$. Then just hope no cops are hitting anyone with laser in the rear lol.
