    My A4 speedo reads 5mph fast as compared to my GPS speed camera detector and sat nav ( that both read the same ).
    Ive tried 2 other Audis and they all were +4/5mph faster.
    Also the chances are is had no film in!
    Hope this makes you sleep better [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Ah hang on; dont sleep to well, you must of been doing over the threshold for it to flash.
    10% +2 , 35mph?. But it still might have not had film in.............

    Was it a front facing Truvelo?
    These flash very late about a car length or two before you pass the camera, so it could be it was flashing someone in front of you.

    Truvelo's are infra-red to avoid blinding on-coming drivers when they flash - you wouldn't see it.
