All radar detectors come from a factory. But no car comes from the automotive manufacturer's factory with a radar detector.

it never left the factory with it. it didn't arrive at the dealership with it. and since you don't have any pictures of it, there is no way anyone can help you figure out what it is or where it came from.

its been awhile since ive been online and posted here, and i must be leaving out details or something.. so here we go.


a 87 300zx non turbo coupe came into the toyota dealership last week, and above the steering column ( where my apexi s-afc is if you have seen pics). It plainly says nissan in nissans text on the front, and is mounted securely like it was done right. the only thing i know for sure is that it is from nissan, as it is imprented in the glass.. not just a sticker or something.
regardless of where it came from, i did a search and found another car with one online, and would like to try and get ahold of one. thanks..

And maybe I'm not being clear.

1. Nissan did not make, manufacture, or install any radar detectors in any of their vehicles EVER. There are at least 3 states where radar detectors are illegal.

2. Without a picture, no one can help you determine what it is exactly you are looking at. Take a picture of it.

My best guess is that you are looking at a built in unit that was installed either by the dealership or any of the high end aftermarket support companies. Since these cars cost more than most people could afford or were willing to spend back in those days, people who did buy them generally had a few extra bucks in their pockets.

My best guess is you are looking at an older version of one of these:

If it is a factory item then the ultimate test is whether the part exists in the FSMs or the parts fiche.

i was just curious if anyone had seen a 300zx with a radar detector that said nissan on it, i couldnt care less if ford made it, sold it to porsche, and then traded it to nissan... just wanted to know any info anyone might have to offer... i see since i have been gone zcar.com has only become worse.

For $1500, I'm sure the installer would put a picture of your penis on it if you wanted to:
