    Its not too difficult to do - I used to convert these exact same models (when they were quite readily available for not much money) to 'code 3' british police car models using the following technique -
    A cotton bud dipped in non acetone nail varnish remover gently rubbed over the tampo printed POLIZEI livery will remove it (be carefull not to rub to much as it can also take the paint layer off any raised areas on the model).  Be aware that the front grille is tampo printed, so try not to remove that by mistake!
    The plastic lightbar on the roof can be removed easily enough (you can unscrew the base & take the interior moulding out & scrape the glue away from inside the roof, then push the lightbar out from the inside, or gently leavering it off might work) - there will be 2 holes left in the roof after the lightbar is removed - these can be filled & painted easily enough.

    Cararama / Hongwell made an E39 saloon in various guises (foreign Police cars mainly) but also in civilian form as well (this ones on Ebay at the moment for £14 inc. postage).....

    Schuco & Schabak also made the E39 in saloon & estate variants but these are rarer (i.e more expensive)

    Your 300 ZX is from an early 1990's Matchbox series called 'Lightning Wheels' & each model came with a plastic cylinder to store the model in, which had a spec sheet detailing the spec of the real vehicle the mdoel was based on. I think there was an F40, & a Porsche of some kind in the same series, plus a few more models no doubt!
