    What was the "IT" moment that got you involved with CounterMeasures?

    Back in 2007 after I pushed my luck a bit too far, I got a ticket and I decided enough was enough and I wasn't going to be living in fear of what was around the next corner any more so I started looking online and found a few more of these kinds of forums. One of which, I found a fellow Irishman...

    Trying to get a hit

    I know the feeling. I've done the same many a time and on one occasion earlier this year, I went through half a tank of petrol with no success lol. He was running his trap like this... Back up the car in a gateway on the side of the motorway and laser oncoming traffic until he gets a victim...

    LI fail

    HI and sorry for the late reply. I wasn't on here for a few months. I don't have those photos handy but I will try and find them (or take them first) and put them up later on. Either way, I'm very happy with the ALP at the moment. Such a shame cos when I got my LI in 2013, it was the best at...

    LI fail

    Hi there. Sorry but I wasn't on here in a few days. I actually cant remember the software rev but I had that LI since Feb 2013 so it was pretty old alright. The LEOs over here don't change their guns that often though. They still have old LTI 2020s in service as well as Marksman and Ultralytes...

    Hello from Ireland

    Who even needs a detector, the way they are reliably hanging out there the whole time? Lol. Cool videos though and it's good to see that your STi-R+ is performing so well. Unfortunately, it can be a lot worse in other areas depending on the geography etc. These things are definitely a pest :mad:

    Hello from Ireland

    1560020708 Hi again. Tried to reply on my laptop but all I can do is quote you but for some reason, I can't add any text to the reply. Cool videos. Looks like a Mk5 GTI as well lol. Definitely would meet up with you at some point but this weekend is booked out now and the weather is crap...

    Hello from Ireland

    Hey mate, welcome aboard :cool:. Where in Ireland are you at all? Cork here, obviously lol :rofl: Glad to see we have a few things in common. A GTI and an STi-R Plus. My GTI is a MK5 and the STiR Plus is just a regular one I bought from KMPH in Canada around ten years ago so I would be very...

    How many people on here are enthusiasts?

    Just to add to what I posted earlier on in this thread... I had to get some work done to my car this week. Bonnet needed respraying and the front bumper too cos even though they were both done a few years ago after a minor accident, the paint that particular garage used was $hite :rolleyes...

    remove RTV silicone from windsheidl

    You can get plastic crowbars on eBay that are used for removing car panels and trim etc.... The ones with the flat edges were sharp and...

    Have you ever bought a vehicle that you regretted?

    Bought a 1995 Ford Fiesta in 2001 for my first car. What a heap of $hit :rolleyes:. Burned oil like mad. Dirty grey gunge under the oil filler cap so the head gasket was one the way out or gone. Could not keep front tyres on it. Tracking would be out after a week so it was cheaper to just let...

    To Arrow or Not

    I miss the arrows on my V1 but I had no choice but to not install it in my current car when I bought it over 6 years ago. This was down to a few reasons. First off, it just wasn't able to pick up the radar vans we have over here while mounted horizontally. I could have used a vertical mount but...

    Ireland now has Truspeed

    Cool :cool:. I will definitely be watching out for what the stats say when/if I get hit by one of these. Pretty handy that this particular area in Cahir is not very far away from me. Only about an hour or less (especially how I drive ;) ) and I can make it a more regular thing to pass through...

    Have you encountered angry drivers because you drive faster than they do?

    It's true lol. I have seen quite a few idiots who took it personally that I passed them and tried to keep up with me when they clearly were not going that fast until I did pass them :rolleyes:

    Other Got rear-ended on the highway

    That is a technique I am noticing to be used more often over here too. I have probably saved my own rear end from another few impacts by doing this when coming to an unexpected stop a few times in the past year cos I definitely noticed the car behind me take note of the hazards. Especially when...

    Ireland now has Truspeed

    Yup. Judging by the photos on the Twitter page, they will keep using the old LTI guns until they break. That's probably why they got that Truspeed. Because one of their older guns died and needed to be replaced. For all I know, that could be the only one in the country. Some of their guns look...
