    so after fitting your sump guard, you have to go slow over sped bumps.... understandable.

    but because a new person wasnt looking where they were going, you had to speed up?

    i sort of understood that


    i have the same problem mate, i normally go over the speedbumps one side at a time and just take it slow,
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    What people are doing behind you is their problem. If they hit you, it's there fault every time. When people get impatient behind me, if anything I slow down - sod them.

    I go slow over speed bumps since I lowered mine, well especially on the road that I use that have them, as i'm sure they are higher than they should be. I don't give two hoots what the driver thinks behind of me going slowly over them and slowing down to approach them, if they are impatient, tough tits!

    And as with Sten and fourteenhundered, if I have an impatient driver behind me and getting close to kissing my tail pipe, i slow down just below the speed limit.

    You should wack the dog light on if you have 2 of them on the back, or tap the break, works wonders when you've only just passed your test so your inexperianced and they sit right up your arse.

    As for going slow over speed bump i go slow over them even without mods coz i dont wanna reck my pride and joy, or shud i say mums pride and joy till she gets a new car.
