I've owned my STi for about 6-months and NOT ONCE has it alerted me to laser.
I came from having a V1 that would false sometimes when facing neon signs or approaching Infiniti's, but whenever I got hit with Laser, it would let me know.
The other day, my ALG8 went off and my STi was SILENT. Not a peep.
If I didn't have an ALG8, I would've been absolutely toast.
I'm so disappointed about my STi's laser detection, I dunno what to do about it.
I had it sent in for the Ramp-Up firmware fix so I'm sure they must have "checked it out" while it was there. Also, I went into the menu system to make sure laser detection was on.
