Been down the motorway and the rev counter and fuel gauge work fine when your doing 60-70mph? doesn't make much sense to me?
I was stopped by the fuzz last night. They came up behind me on Winston Churchill Avenue in Portsmouth in their transit van with blue lights on. I pulled over thinking they were going to pass me going to a job, but pulled up saying " you are lucky we are on a more important job - or we would have given you a speeding ticket" I said that my speedo cable had detached from the gearbox the other day, so was unaware of my speeding. He said "you should be able to judge your speed via the rev counter" I stated that Italian electrics don't always work and having a working speedo or rev counter is not an mot failure. I also said with a smirk that I had no idea how much fuel I had either as that''s stopped working too? The coppers were not amused and asked if I had MOT - "yes officer it passed on 19th June 2010." I said to them, "how fast was I doing then" but they said they were to far away to judge this, but you were going fast for sure!?. I asked how could I get a speeding ticket then? Copper nearest me said we could do you me for dangerous driving. I said to him "you don't know my speed because you were 1/4 mile behind me yet you could see I was dangerous. I asked "what was dangerous then?"
They were looking for trouble and it was 2am in the morning and my exhaust is mega loud especially in a built up area.
Going to get my speedo fixxed this weekend hopfully
