It clogs up in snow as well and you cannot fit a bull bar.

Okay, figure this one out. FCM falsed on an overpass with almost NOTHING ahead of the car. Didn't actually apply the brakes, but "BRAKE!" appeared in the display, and the system beeped, as you can hear.

It saw something. Maybe a large insect in front of the sensor?

Second incident in two days. Seems to have trouble with cars hitting the brakes in lanes to the left? Or were the designers too stupid to actually use the info coming from the LDW system to figure out WHERE the lane is? It seems like the car that was hitting the brakes was almost directly in front of me at the time it happened, but that's not the direction I was driving because the lanes all curve to the right.

To start off with, it might be wise to set it to "short"
There may well be something wrong with the system, mine never does this even when set to "long", but it does sometimes pick up objects by the wayside in curves. After all, it is just a stupid computer.
Curve+object approaching too fast right in front = FCM.

The FCM works with radar behind the grille. The LDW works with a camera under the mirror. The latter system is not reliable enough to integrate with the FCM; Lines on the road can be missing, crossing the lanes, etc.

My 2015 4hs used to trigger in multi-storey car parks till I set it to "short". I've only had it once since, when a car selected reverse instead of drive and backed out in front of me. It was quicker than I was at applying the brakes :shock:

You may have speed, but I have momentum...
