    Question!

    Do the fuzz over there have a certain mufti car?

    Over here its a holden commowhore that you can basically tell a mile away due to the clear lights on the dash, radar and the aerial array, lol.

    Just wanna keep out of trouble, for at least a week. :D :smash:

    most here are newish vauxhalls and some skodas/fords/bmws/volvos.

    quite a few undercover corsa's which isnt nice.

    basically avoid any new car lol. and i have spotted one clear as day because it had so many aerials, then when i got closer it had lights hidden in the rear window lol.

    Yeah around Birmingham city centre i've seen quite a few unmarked silver Skoda's, blue lights behind the grill etc, don't notice them until they decide to fly off with lights appearing out of every orifice!

    Round here at mo the fast/motorway/persuit ones are Accord Type R's, Merc's (that are slammed to the deck, properly low), an Evo (just one it seems), a non-Sti Impreza (just one again), Octavia RS's, and the usual array of Volvo Turbos.

    Quite a selection, hard to miss, not much in the way of unmarked ones.

    I'm generally wary of any new-ish C-class Merc or big Volvo until I can see the driver/passenger, been using Skoda Superb's up here too recently. They're easily identified though due to the lack of taxi plates, I don't think anyne else buys them :wack:#

    Marked traffic cars tend to be the volvo's and merc's, as well as new and older 530/535D's....in Scotland anyway.

    LOL

    Skoda's might be quick but the drivers need faster reactions !!

    I got pulled and a fine (my first ever for this offence) for using my mobile as I came down the slip road from Watford onto the link to the M25. Cop was in a silver unmarked Octavia RS and lights appeared behind the headrests - I thought he was pulling the guy in front, so I overtook him whilst still on the phone and glared at him as I went past..........................................at which point he motioned gently for me to pull over :D :D :D

    Put him right off his step when I suggested he take me to court "if he was feeling lucky" :D :D :D I promptly reset the cruise control to 100mph and just accelerated straight into the fast lane once we were done - much to the amusement of two of my engineers who were in the car with me !!!

    I feckin hate coppers !!

    :D
