Far far too many to count.
It's one of my all time pet hates.
If I had a pound etc etc etc.


Thought it would be. Never heard of a copper that didn't say it was their pet hate

It has been statistically proven that driving while using a phone, iPod, or satnav is the equivalent of driving while just on the drink drive limit.
The next worse for me is seatbelts.
Even though I'm generally exempt I still wear mine anytime the vehicle is moving.

But as a man of the law (notice I didn't use copper or any derogatory term) you should be setting an example to all of the younger motorist like myself

If you read the post i do say i wear mine-

Even though I'm generally exempt I still wear mine anytime the vehicle is moving.


There are times of operational requirement when i don't, for that i have an exemption and can choose to disregard the seatbelt law but only once i have carried out the appropriate personal risk assessment.
Personally i prefer my face still attached to my head. :D

I understand that there are time in your job where a seatbelt would be a hindrance (big word for me) and its good to see you set an example and if only every police officer was had that attitude to their job they would probably get a bit more respect

My remap required no modifications at all.
Thinking of a bigger intercooler at some point though just to give it a little bit more push.

k13r4n I let Clive take this one as he actually has a remap n I don't lol. But all I was gonna say is yup you don't need any extra modifications. However, if you are thinking about doing any more performance upgrades, do em before the remap.

I'm assuming you have a diesel n not a petrol? May have asked this before.

In that case a remap would be worth it

But if you had a petrol like me :unsure: a remap would be pointless cause it would be a few hundred quid for a very little gain in bhp of about 4 or 5 if that. But with a diesel it's definitely worth doing
