I received one of the two Whelens tir3 emergency lights. I am considering a new mounting location. I just wanted to know if this depreciated the car at all in the way of aesthetics. <p>New Mounting Idea: <b>Mind you there will be another light to the top left</b><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/tir1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/tir3.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/tir2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/tir4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Old Mounting Location:<br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/grill4.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/grill3.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/grill2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/grill-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><br>-TIA<p>-Copeland<BR><BR>

Hey man, why do you need a radar detector with all the stuff you have on your car, surely no police officer would write you a ticket, so just send it my way!

I got pulled over the other day by our S.O. and I was in full uniform leaving our station 2 to go to our central station for some paperwork. He pulls me over asks "are you going to an emergency?" I politely said "no, sir". His response was "license and registration!"<p>So I am in the only EMT in his area for the next 4 hours and he writes me a ticket. (better yet he also cites me failure to change address) So it doesnt quite work out that way. <p>Moral of this story is "Know the officers ranking officer" <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I am afraid of reduced light output from that location, but on the other hand I am afraid of the way it will look mounted on the grill itself <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Matt, I took it off a few weeks ago!<p>I was working on the lighting last night and surprisingly there was little to no difference in light input.<br>
