I think entering into stations at full speed is more effective than stealth mode.
I never bother with silent running now either in or out bound. I am fortunate to be using a fast ship (FDL) so that helps. I request permission, line up at about 6k out then fly fast at the slot, keeping the rotation adjusted as I go. I don't use the boost just generous application of the throttle
Couple of things....
As you go into the station, if you get scanned it wont count if you can make it through the mail slot before it finishes. I have seen security vessels crash into the station as they try and scan me, most amusing indeed
If you do get partially scanned this seems to carry on when you leave so be warned, if you are doing multiple missions and have other cargo that you are taking else where you will most likely get fined as you leave. Also no warning pops up to say scan detected either in this scenario and the scan seems to be much quicker, almost like it has resumed from where it left off, this might be bug.
Watch the pattern of the security vessels, you can easily spot them on the scanner as you are leaving. I generally take off then wait inside the station by the slot and look for a gap in the flight pattern of the ships then exit rapidly. Fly straight away from the mail slot, dont worry about lining up the jump destination unless it is pretty much in front of you, concentrate on getting clear of the scans. Then you can jump once safely away.
