Only been stopped once by a solo cop, because I went round the roundabout a bit to quick

He was very good about it and drove of with a smile

Touch wood, i've never been pulled.

The best thing is keep your speed down and save it for track days etc.

i have been pulled once this year. but for appreantly not indicating. the best thing i did was just pull over. switch my engine off. get out of the car and gave them my driving license. just looked at it and didnt say much. just told me to be careful and thats it. it just depends what you where doing when you get pulled.

You'll probably all hate me now, but from a police officers point of view, if your driving safely and not looking like you've just nicked it you'll very rarely be stopped, i stopped one before i bought mine to ask what he thought of it and would he have another, but now i admire the car and run it through the Police national computer just to make sure it has not been nicked from another county !!

Regards Ian ( Please don't hate me for being a copper !! )
