Go on, tell me it's for my own good.. :poke:
If you ever think I'm off my rocker.. Just put me back in it and walk away... It's the kindest thing
My wife says I never listen - or something like that.

Good to see that those running the courses don't seem to even know what the limit is. :evil:

As for "Smart" motorways, welcome to Thames Valley. :headbang: It took over 3 years to turn a bit of the M3 into one, and now they are doing the same to a stretch of the M4 just to make sure our nearest Motorways are no longer fit for purpose!

I use dual-carriageway A roads whenever I can because it's quicker, and there aren't any reduced limits or cameras. :D
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.
