He He! What a load of Bollocks ;-) Even if true he must have being over the
speed limit at the time! Probably traveling at 135mph.
I'll wait, and find out the true facts. Probably an ass hole who thinks he's
above he law.
So when the TC's book him for 135 he says "well it felt like 135" and then
produces a load of road test results etc. that prove that the police
evidence is doubtful (certainly beyond reasonable doubt).
A quick check on an R reg 318 suggests that the speed (especially in an
auto) might be slightly exagerated: -
Number of doors4
Number of seats5
Max power (bhp/rpm)115/5500
Max torque (lb ft/rpm)124/3900
Max speed (mph)125
Kerb weight (kg)1205
PS BMW speedos are not made by Ford and tend to read fairly accurately.
