With the lack of aftermarket for the 2012 Focus I began to get a little bored so I purchased one ($418). Shipping was quick and painless.

I plan on doing a direct install using the visor clip. Instead of using the T-Splice included with the Valentine radar, I plan on using a "Add-A-Circuit". Which goes into the fuse panel using an existing fuse and does exactly what it says add a circuit. I am going to have to run a wire the length on car to the fuse panel in the hatch and remove the A-Pillar.

If anyone is interested I will make a detail "How-To" guide on the install.

Also please DON'T make this a debate on Escort/Beltronics is better/worst than Valentine.

You can just use the fuse box in the passenger footwell. I hooked my radar detector to the 12v charger.
