The 458 happening at last

Went for a late ride yesterday and finally found a white 458 next to me at the lights.I'd been hoping for this duel for a long time and craftily snicked it into M2.When the lights tripped we remained together to about 70 before the radar alarm started going off and we both backed off the pedal so guess he had one too.After exchanging thumbs up and waves got to say it was the perfect end to the day

It's a bit off-topic but how useful do you find your radar detector? I've considered buying one but haven't done so far.

I wouldn't leave home without it. A GPS detector protects your Driving Licence by giving early warning of all types of speed traps and fixed speed cameras.It gives audible and screen warnings of laser, radar,specs, fsc's and other traps,has the added bonus of giving you your true speed on the screen.For instance true 30mph on an M5 will read 32mph on the speedo and at 76mph your really at 70mph so keep it just below 80mph true speed on the detector to stay safe on motorway.
