In Qld they are actually using no flash cameras. I wonder if the old cover your plates with hair spray trick works.

Re: unexpected cost of owning a GC

The Hairspray has not worked for a very long time, if at all.
All speed cameras use flashes, it is just that they are now IR and not visable to the human eye.
Reading that site, it looks like these work with both visable and IR flashes.
In Australia we would need front and rear, as speed cameras now work both ways.

Same here actually... my first in almost 10 years.

The low RPM at 60km/h can make for a somewhat unresponsive throttle to minor input changes. Obviously cruise is a solution, though I've found the transmission's sport setting is useful too.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: unexpected cost of owning a GC

Have avoided speeding fine with my GC for the past two years. Cruise control everywhere Tried a couple of times no cruise control but spent more times looking at the speed readout as a small lapse it was away.

Easy to speed in the CRD, these things rock.
