Where to purchase Bel brand radar detector

Cruthcfeild no longer seems to handle Bel.

I am looking for a place to purchase, and the local stores dont care the brand.

I can drive an hour to BB or CC but do they handle them?? I looked on website for both places and could not find them.

Would like to purchase online, but a google search only reveals merchants which I am not familar with.

Anyone know of good (reputable, affordable) place to purchase??

If you are a Costco member, you can buy 3 different Bel models from their online store: the Bel Vector 985, the Bel 946, and the Bel 910 CS. Costco also sells 2 Cobra models.

Any reason for your loyalty for the Bel brand?

Just curious... I have heard that Escort and Valentine are fantastic...

Personally, I have owned a Bel before, and it did right for me...but not sure it would make me specifically seek the brand out if it was difficult to find...

I wouldn't even consider owning a Bell. Escort or Valentine. I don't think I've ever seen a test where Bells have done well compared to those two.

Edit: I just did a search and Road & Track recently tested, and Bell came close. But I couldn't find any test information--just their rankings. I couldn't find the latest Car & Driver test on the web.

I used to have a bel RD that was built into a clip-on curved rear view mirror. I loved that thing. Once it died, I tried to find another but they stopped making them.

No reason for blind loyality to Bel, just have owned several and have liked their performance. None quit working they were all stolen.

I dont like the looks or quality of whistler, cobra or uniden.

I have read that valentine was overrated (dont know that it is, but it is out of my price range) and the Escorts I have read very good things about and my go with them if I cant find a Bel that fits my needs and price range. I was trying to keep from spending less than 175.

Well then, the Bel 985 Vector is right in your price range (as is the V-1 at close to $400).

Oh wait - did you mean more than 175?

Oh yeah I love spending more than what I budgeted........

Tell me about being a costco member...........we dont have one close.

I assume that is where the 985 is being sold. The bel website does not list this unit..........

They have a 995 for 299
They have a 965 for 249
They have a 945 for 199

MSRP is why I didnt want to buy direct for Bel.
