How was it fitting the Vauxhall interior? Surely a pain to do? Look great all round.

Check the radiator. Had this happen to a colleague and it lead to serious overheating.

How much is that roughly?

How much is what? If you do want to remap you would be better to perform any other modifications first i.e. air filter, exhaust, new injectors. This will allow the remap to make more power over stock.

Not exactly accurate.
A Gatso uses radar to detect vehicles passing by.
The radar will know the vehicle is going faster than the programmed limit by the difference in wavelength of the returned signal.
A jammer will confuse this signal but will still most likely result in the speed being above the threshold and it is the photos that tell the truth.
Of course the jammer will have no effect on Truvelo as it's about times between set points and unless the jammer also blocks lssers then handheld units will still work too.

Military vehicles do sometimes use jammers as part of their ecm procedures against roadside IED's and were very effective in Northern Ireland during the troubles.

I stand corrected, truly are the law expert on here Clive lol.

Am I right in thinking though the photos would still lead to prosecution for speeding and most likely highlight the fact that the car is fitted with a jammer?
