    The annual I've-been-to-France-and-got-done-for-speeding thread

    But the problem if you only have one is that if you are stopped and the policeman requires you to use it (which they could) then assuming the test is negative then you of course will be left with no breathalyser, meaning you can't drive off :doh:

    Latest attempt at CL 500 repair

    CL500 estimate of repair costs or write-off?
