    What’s your experiences with radar detectors?  Not interested in the GPS only powered ones.  I’m looking for something to detect radar/laser mobile traps too.

    Price range up to £300

    I think the only thing decent at that price would be a Road Angel, but they won’t give you comprehensive protection. Try Chris at Veil Tuning: veiltuning@live.co.uk for advice on the better products he installs.

    I had one but got fed up with the thing going off constantly, turned me into a nervous wreck, somehow I have managed to have a clean licence since 1985 , two speeding and a driving without due care ( drifting round a roundabout in the escort) in ’84 calmed me down a bit and gave me eyes in the back of my head and an inbuilt “babylon detector” ! Driving the MK3 has definitely upped the chance of getting caught for something though! I did like the look of that cough cough radar jammer thing, but know thats a serious nick if you get caught !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit.

    The  Badger has been located and sighted succesfully.

    I know what you mean @71.  I had one 20 years ago & it alarmed at everything including shop sliding doors.  I think (hope) the newer ones have better filtering.

    @DrRs The Road Angel Pure is £99 a year subscription, ouch.  Good reviews though.

    @Judtt, Have you got the Skyway Aguri?  They seem to be getting very good reviews on Amazon.

    My shortlist so far is between Snooper 4zero Elite & Aguri Skyway.

    No, not yet but will have by end of month. Got stung for a £100 seminar a while back so def worth a punt. Doesn’t eliminate the need for a bit of self control. Def looks the best for the money though.

    Be extremely wary of radar jammers, dead easy for police to check if ones was causing false readings / messing up reflected signal.

    they will not take this lightly if you are caught

    Hi all, it’s been a while! Waiting for the postman! Yesterday M27 Eastbound J9 M27. Stuck behind HGVs and the usual middle lane owners so pulled out into 3rdlane and accelerated to get past. This was a long mild curve that gradually straightened out. Just as the road got straight I saw the bridge in front of me but the camera van was obscured by a Direction Sign so didn’t see the camera till the last moment. Couldn’t brake as braking on a motorway for no apparent reason can have disastrous results. Just slowed down and moved into inside lane as this was my exit. Not sure what speed I was doing when the camera came into view. I think the unwritten acceptable speed is 10% plus 2 which at 70mph is 79mph. Anyone been done for less that 10%+2? If I have been clocked I hope all I get is one of those half day course sessions. Really sneaky where they positioned the van to the left of the bridge so it was obscured till the last moment. Not sure about a jammer but the ability to detect these things might be of interest.

    ^^^^😎😎 I enjoyed that.

     

    So I went to the Aguri website & picked up a GTX50 Skyway which had been refurbished for £50 bargain.  They have demos and shop display ones for other tight arses too.  If it’s sh#t I’ll pop it on Ebay

    Nice to have you back John, even if the circumstances are not good fingers crossed that you don’t receive anything from the postman 🙀
