    Hi Stamped book to 125k and lots of invoices to back up. I'm open to offers, though. I'm assuming whatever price I ask I'll get knocked down. Thanks for the advice. Ian

    Road Tax Fine

    100% agree, this is what HM Government agreed to do about 15 years ago, also justified as ensuring overseas visitors who drove here paid a bit more as well (no Swiss style road pass here). However what they did was massively increase the fuel tax and also the RFL at the same time............hmmmm, why do we not trust politicians?

    XC90 yeah or Nae?!?

    My wife must be a cheap date - she took some persuading to spend £5K on an 11 reg Hyundai i30 last year!! Only a 1.4 but its a great car, cant help wondering why they don't make a hot one with 300bhp!! Ian

    So I been caught speeding :(

    ......and the Legality, it is illegal to put speed cameras up on normal roads unless there has been a minimum number of accidents over a fixed period, or if the design of the road (eg blind junction) makes it a risk. Does this not also apply to our safest roads - ie motorways? Reluctantly I'd say if the balance of the existence of these things is safety based (which I doubt in most cases) I don't think any of us can object - but a speed camera wont catch the new C Class Merc at 8pm on the M40 doing 60mph in the overtaking lane (3), with no rear lights on...........front LEDs only on Sunday!
