-

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise Control! Alot of my driving is at night and it's quite easy to creep up speed, 80, 80, 100, 110 and you don't even realise you're doing it. Next thing you've been nicked! With the cruise control I can set it at 70-80mph and not risk the motorway police stopping me!
