Mein Auto: 2010 335d
Sports Sedan becomes Economy Sedan

This is what will happen when the State Police shoot a laser beam at your 335d and find you doing 104 in a 55. The Trooper dropped it down to 85 so he didn't have to arrest me. He was surprised when I told him the BMW was a diesel. Prolly won't be the last one he runs across.
Anyway, my wings are clipped for the forseeable future so I'm going to be concentrating on wringing out every mile/gallon (the ticket was $294). God knows what insurance will say. Lesson learned?

Sorry to hear that, you should still fight it. I have had a lot of tickets dismissed. Show up in a suit.
