    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For the Dutchies (to stay on the legal side); I'm almost buying a Target EUR 550, but have to make sure it will work... Does the windshield of 147 jam the signal for radar detectors, or can I use a window-fitted detector. :cool: I have heard people saying some windshield will block radar...
