    I think a simple connection like that would drive you mad, as every time a car was in the blind spot position it would go off when you are just driving in normal traffic with other cars around and had no intention to change lanes. I would be looking for a buzzer that only went off if a car was in the blind spot position AND you put your blinker on to signal an intention to move into that car.

    You could be right but for $3.68 for the buzzer I'd like to try it. There's probably a way to include the blinker-on mode and now you pointed it out, that's how I'd prefer it. Oh well, more research.

    You caused me to check the Owner manual. It says the bs system only works at > 15 km/h & if being overtaken at a speed difference of < 10 km/h. I thought I'd mention those figures.

    In the Discover Pro manual 2018, page41, under Route plan they show a symbol of 4 horizontal parallel linewhich means ”Shifting the intermediate destination” “Touch thesymbol in the list, hold it and shift.”


    I have set a long route, across about athird of Australia, and want to diverge at one point along the wayfrom the route the system chose. From the description above, Ithought that symbol would be what I should use, but I cannot see it,nor can I drag the route on the map which would be handy.


    Can anyone please explain.

    Tyre recommendations for the R

    What are people using as replacements tyres for the R. I've done 23K and my ContiContactSport 5P are about half worn mostly driven easy with the occasional discreet fang. I find the Conti 5P's an excellent tyre I know there is now a ContiContactSport 6 and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and 4S are similar what experience have owners found with these tyres. As an aside I find the handling of the 7.5 R is pretty much foolproof I'm running a JB4 Map 0 stock most of the time Map 4 for when the opportunity permits around 250kW 485Nm absolutely flies but the stock platform and tyres handle this with ease in fact I would say the extra power gives the car more cornering agility basically pivot the car with throttle control and slight steering adjustment. Just super impressed by this platform.

    I recently changed my Conti 5P tyres for Michelin PS4S tyres. Much better wet grip with less understeer (Contis still had plenty of tread depth), PS4S a re slightly noisier on coarse aggregate, similar noise levels on smooth bitumen, PS4S are less crashy on sharp bumps (eg bridge joins).

    I'd happily buy PS4S again. Conti 6 and GoodYear F1 Supersort are getting good reviews.

    Yes PS4S are the higher spec but will wear a bit quicker than the PS4 I guess will see if there's feedback on the ContiSportContact 6, thanks.
