    Unmarked Police cars

    The Colne-Burnley stretch of the M65 is now being patrolled by a dark grey 08 plate 3 series, fairly sure its a 320d.

    Also saw a black RS4 estate in Reading area.

    Back in the late 90's I lived in Cheshire and saw with my own peepers a Mk3 XR3i and a Mk2 Scirocco as undercover police cars. And a Panda with flowers on it in Manchester city centre with 2 massive coppers squeezed in it...no joke
    Still loving the 130i like the sideways dirtbag I am

    I was followed by a Black Nissan Primera GT with tinted windows about 8 years ago at 4 am, when I was driving an E36 M3 at the time. Decided to drop a gear and disappear when it followed me for 2 miles, blue lights came on and pulled me over, it was an unmarked car. Told me to take it easy, as M3s was desireable to thiefs in the area at the time, like their car kinda spooked me with the way it looked anyways...

    Theres so many undercover cops nowerdays.....Saw a 56 plate R32 on the side of the road with the police sign in the back lit up not long back and if i was byside it it go for it...
    Also the police put out 2 cars and a moped all on the same strech of road and left the cars with the windows slightly down with things on show and waited for people to attempt to steal them or things out of it...Then after catching anyone who tryed stealing anything they rapped the car and moped in "police" tape to make them look busy.

    Thats called a Trap Car, and aimed at car thieving scum, rather different than an unmarked traffic car though ...

    If thats the one I think it is does it have a vented bonet and massive exhaust?

    On the way back from Gatwick to Portsmouth one early morning as you come onto the A27 I had an altercation with him after he had followed me for a bit, and if he was a copper then I should probably be in jail right about now!

    they tend to run the higher powered diesels in my area, bmw 535, 530 etc can spot them a mile away, they sit lower than standard. I have been followed a few times by them, quite a few times at night in 30 zones and they were driving with only sidelights on. Dont know what the reason for this is? maybe to reduce the attention drawn to them lol

    I swear I'm not trying to teach Grandma to suck eggs here, but more specifically for the record...

    You are required to use headlights (dipped-beam) at night (after 'lighting-up' time) on roads where street lights are more than 600 feet apart (or are unlit of course!). Generally this means you're alright with sidelights in (most) 20/30 zones, but more or less everywhere else you should use dipped beam.

    I'm generally pretty good at spotting them (useless as that is - I got my 6 points off a Volvo which looked like Blackpool Battenburg Shop - DOH!); but I saw a stunner the other day... It wasn't even 'properly' disguised... Silver 5 series with three wing-mirrors and more radio aerials than a russian trawler (and other tell-tale signs all of which I could see about 100 yards further back)... Some weapon in a Mondeo following so close it looked like he was being towed... It lasted for about 3 miles and then that sickening little sign flipped-up off the parcel shelf. I couldn't help but laugh!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.
