    Remember hearing a story few years back,about a driver who was going fairly quickly.An unmarked car pulled up alongside him and the policeman in the passenger seat(the car going quick was in inside lane) held up a piece of A4 paper with the words "speed limit 70!!" on it.
    The other driver acknowledged this,copper gave him a nod and continued on his merry way.Common sense prevails :)

    yea, I was gonna say it's actually in Blue & White on every motorway in the Country... but I guess driving in the middle lane all the time means you can't see the road signs situated on the left & are therefore immune from their message. lol

    I'm sure he'll be cock-o-hoop about you calling him a jobsworth, so go ahead and watch Karma in full effect. :p

    Oh wind your neck in.

    At no point did I ever "brag" or "boast" about speeding, I was merely relaying my experience. If you choose to interpret it otherwise then that's your problem and frankly I don't give a toss.

    Not necessarily true - GPS works in 3D (provided at least 4 satellites are in view) ie they calculate altitude as well (some display it) and can take the altitude into account when calculating speed. Older units may have not done this, but I would expect most modern systems do.

    My goodness there are some self righteous, people (person) on here.

    Everyone speeds, to say otherwise would make you a liar. I do it daily, but there is a time and a place, like the Op pointed out. Being sensible, it is not black and white.

    Wind your neck in and jog on.

    It's a long way down from that 'high horse' you appear so fond of.

    Just out of curiosity, your sig lists a number of 'mods' you appear to 'boast' about (to use your terminology). For someone who rigidly sticks to speed limits and presumably avoids any form of risky driving, they seem at odds with the image you're portraying here.

    Am I missing something?

    I have a few cars, not just an Audi. I speed in them all. When conditions permit.

    I think you should buy a life.

    Or a dacia? Try http://www.dacia.co.uk and this is the forum you should be on http://www.daciaforum.co.uk

    Whoever let you have some audi keys should hang their head in shame.
