    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...

    You can get plastic crowbars on eBay that are used for removing car panels and trim etc.... https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Car-Audio-Disassembly-Tool-Kit-Plastic-Crowbar-Door-Plate-Buckle-Audio-Installer/132915094799?hash=item1ef25b650f:g:91UAAOSwPuRcOGAA 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...

    List of traffic surveillance in Europe

    Update for Ireland, they now seem to have the Truspeed over here. Still only seen this one... https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/88066/ ..on their Twitter page but where there's one, there's more. Still using the Ultralyte and the older LTI guns for the most part.

    Ireland now has Truspeed

    Yup, that -178KMH at 156M was a rear shot. Just like the one I posted in the video section a few weeks ago. They have been doing that for donkeys years over here. Thats why I had rear LI heads and I just completed my ALP quad at the weekend by fitting rear heads. That poor bugger never saw it...

    Ireland now has Truspeed

    I was looking around on Twitter last night when I came across a tweet on the Garda Siochana (Irish police) account where they usually show their catches for the day and I noticed that they seem to have a pic of a Truspeed instead of the usual Ultralyte or Marksman 20/20 showing the speeds of...

    Other Rear Ended Last Year

    I know lol. He did not seem to realise just how close he came to becoming a smear on the scenery. True but it will (of course) be the driver's fault if that happens :rolleyes:. Cheers. Yeah, that young lad didn't seem to give a crap one way or another. I would have soiled myself if that...

    Other Rear Ended Last Year

    That's scary alright. I have seen a few people wander across the road a bit on a few occasions but nothing like that :eek: As far as this video goes, I am actually quite surprised at how I wasn't shouting a lot more obscenities once I was hit lol. I really love my car and I was more concerned...

    Other Rear Ended Last Year

    Yup, I would not like to trade places with him there. Not all roads here are like that but a lot of the old ones are though. Hundreds of years old and that one is particularly bendy cos its going around a big rocky outcrop. No heavy machinery around back then to just go through instead of...

    Sorry to see that mate :(. I had the same kind of thing happen to me last year also..... https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/87993/ Hopefully you won't be away from the car too long and I'm glad you weren't hurt either :cool:

    Other Rear Ended Last Year

    I was looking at the thread in here by FoxStang earlier and I just remembered having a very similar accident last year. Driving along a country road over here and I came across a young lad walking on my side. I braked as I felt I had no room to go around him with traffic coming the opposite...
