When Howard visits the airport of Shanon for the first time an ATC radar appears on the screen for couple of seconds. It is most likely a Marconi PSR system co-mounted with a MSSR radar which is too modern for the late 70s or early 80s.

The car that Rhys Ifans (Mr Nice) uses during the scene where the police pull his vehicle apart clearly uses a number plate font that was not introduced in Britain until 2001. Prior to this letters had more width and the same hight as the current standard.

Miscellaneous 

When Howard Marks crashes his car in Ireland, it's obvious that the car went further than the film makers expected as the camera jerks untidily to the right to keep it in shot.
