Neat fiberoptics application.
ps - where is the receiver tip mounted??
it will be mounted at the rear at licence plate level ,
i was contacted by stinger HQ today by phone, as i showed interest in applying the freedom laser with all-fiber yesterday , solely for the rear. and because i showed a little angriness as they said i did not have an stinger installation. I submerged them with mails containing photos , serial numbers etc.
So the showed a little remorse today.
I said i will not defend stinger any longer on the forums, i told them their administration sucks and in America people are not happy with the support.
And for an installation of 4000 euro , i expected some courtesy ,
After clearing up the fog, It seems my configuration at the front is suitable for connecting these new fibers.
because i have freedom laser computer.
The software is not ready yet , and it will need a special cable coming from the middle of my car and go via the floor, in the trunk arm to the licence plate , that is what i understood of his explanation.
The pricing is not ready yet , and software is in the pipe, the fibers are ready , he promised to send
me two configurations for my car ,
I have a complete VIP-set and i have given him the complete configuration of my Stinger installation ( 3 receivers and transmitters in the front should have been the case
but they only placed 2 receivers and 2 transmiitters ) so now i have one set , stored in a box ( a pity )
I will keep you informed the moment i get the two configurations
i guess they will need to pierce holes , like they did with my CLA250

i did not want that for my AMG - to intrusive - , but now the all-fiber freedom laser implementation will be available and it will be very stealthy at licence plate level
picture of the implementation in my CLA250 sport
you can see clearly the hole in the bumper , where the fiber is located.

Wow that sort of mickey mouse bumper port job would have given me a heart attack!
You are one forgiving soul .....
yes i am forgiving because what can you do , once the evil has been done
thats why i did not want that to happen on my AMG
Did Breda Autoshop rip me off and only installed one set of transmitter/receiver for
I had 4 laser : 3 in the front and 1 at the rear of my cla250
it seems to mee BredaAutoShop kept all my hardware and just installed one set of transmitter/receiver ( and kept my fibers ! )
all info also about stinger is to be found there
especially picture is of importance, that is all what is left from my receiver and transmitters , 1 measly set on the front !
