eBay tat volume 3.

That's because people put exceedingly offensive trimz 'n alloyz on their cars. I hope it's just a fashion fad that goes away, but I fear many an original steel rim and embellisher is being weighed in in lieu.

 

That guy with the Bedford Astra Van does say he has the original wheels, which is good because the ones he's put on it are rotten.

Fuck a duck that SD1 looks like some kind of deranged knight rider attempt.

 

Has anyone ever owned an ex-plod car? The internets makes out they're well looked after, oil changed every 3000 miles etc but my old boy who occasionally fixed them in the past reconed they're totally hammered into the ground and massively shagged out old knackers by the time they leave active service.

I'd quite like a plod t5 just out of the sheer twat factor of being able to put the shits up tail gaiting wankers.

Yes to both. They ARE well maintained, well the traffic cars are anyway, the pandas less so, they usually get serviced every 6 weeks or something like that, but they're driven very hard and the interiors are often totally destroyed.

My mate bought an ex armed response car which was a decent colour and hadn't had too much of the dash ripped out but it was still a mess inside.

My Vectra is an ex-traffic car, and that certainly seems to have been well maintained, mechanically at least.  It doesn't drive like it's done 184K.  Another advantage (at least I consider it an advantage) with ex-plod motors is that they tend to be a fairly basic spec, which means less to go wrong.  My Vectra is a 55-plate 3.2 V6 estate, but it has no aircon and keep-fit windows in the back.  As long as you don't mind holes in the dash (and plugged holes in the roof) they're not a bad buy.

 

Edit:  How the feck do you do a double quote on this newfangled forum?
