    Default My sightings from last few weeks driving..

    Spent a lot of time on the road in the last few weeks, thought I'd share some sightings...

    1) Bottle green (unsure of vx name for it) veccy c SRi. Not many of these around, looked very nice and stood out a lot more than us with black or silver, or black or silver.

    2) Saw a Signum, goldy colour, Sri, which turned out to be covert motorway police on the M1 circa junction 24 or so.

    3) Established that when the needle on my diesel guage is right at the bottom, it'll still do about 30 miles. Anyone know what the exact reserve is on these?

    4) Saw a traffic cop livered up volvo on a bridge of an A road today. Was travelling at a little bit of speed you could say. Can someone confirm that they would have had to tug me on the spot, they can't send a NIP after as they were not actively videoing....?

    Thats all folks!

    Fingers crossed. They had an officer in the passenger seat and the driver was just getting back in, so I think I'm ok. Not grumbling becuase it's the price you have to pay if you do put your foot down! I signed up to that insurance for your licence the other week so there is some protection now! Surprised more people didn't get more excited about that link I posted..!

    The C is an unusual car in that any colour seems to suit it, I've not seen one that I think is really nasty, correct me if I'm wrong though.


    I don't let the range drop below about 30 miles, I get nervous when it reaches the 20's! I moved my mates beemer yesterday & his range showed 2 miles!!

    You'll have to hope about the speed trap mate, sounds like you should be ok though, sound like they were packing up, fingers crossed.

    Best of luck!!

    Like this? (its digital green like madam vectra says). Quite rare but not as rare as some colours

    Had my range down to 1 mile in my CDTI.

    Got to the petrol station and it took about 59.5 litres before clicking off
