Morning all!!

Just a warning for anyone driving through Birmingham, hubby spotted a silver Scooby Sti - unmarked police car.

At least they are starting to have some taste in the cars they drive!!!

nice to see they have finally got good taste in cars,but it's our taxes paying for they to drive about in them and getting paid for it too-just not right.
here in northern ireland we have a few unmarked twin turbo legacys. big alloys, tinted windows and squared number plates.....the worst part of it is that they try to pull up close to you,just to get you to floor it and then they can nick you for racing..... just not fair.......only real give away is the small blue lights in front grille and small blue lights mounted in rear window(hard to see as the tints are limo black)

pimp my cops

Apparently Surrey police have 2 Imprezas (not sure if they're STI's or not) but you're unlikely to be pulled over by one of them as the ones they have don't ever seem to leave the police garage, apparently they don't like them. Spose that means they'll soon be sold off at auction cheap, someone will get a bargain as long as they don't mind filling in a few holes here and there!
