I just picked up an Escort 9500ci and am scouting around locations for optimal installation.
I installed an RX75 in a vw jetta, and in a Saturn Vue, but this one looks like it may be a challenge in the Touareg.
Has anyone installed a remote radar in their Treg?
Looking for advice on getting the wires through the firewall (best location) as well as placement of the radar and laser units.

Look for thread "running wire through firewall" -02-26-2010. You can also do a search on UHF radio or HAM radio. There are good threads with photo's as to passing wire through firewall.

Did you manage to get the cables through the firewall?

Its a slow work in progress and I haven't had much time lately.
Started with the back. Completely disassebled the back and wired in the rear laser receiver. Turned out really neat and tidy, but a slow process to get everything just right.
My next challenge is to get the front bumper apart and mount the front receivers.

Yeh, just got to it today. Got my bumper cover off, mounted the 3 front components and replaced the bumper cover.
I pulled the grommet you mentioned, had to drill the hole a little bigger and then ran all 3 wires in through it. I put a rubber washer around the wires and over the hole and it looks pretty slick.
Now I've got to mount the interior components, connect the power and I'm done.
