Police S3

14 posts in this topic

Hi guy's, Just to let you know Lincolnshire Police are now running a silver S3 Sportback as an unmarked traffic car, so if you should see one close up behind i would strongly suggest you don't try to show him who's boss it could be plod.

They did test drive a three door back in 2007 and loved it so they went and brought a five door.

It's in use as from lastweek so keep your eyes peeled. I don't know the reg but I will post it as soon as I find out.

Had a silver S3 in Manchester for a while but an older one.

To be fair you need something fairly rapid to lose an S3 so a good choice of motor for the boys in erm... silver now it seems.

There is one in Sheffield too, along with a silver Focus ST with black wheels, and what looks like a personalised plate. They're going to some effort now. :mad:

We have a mk5 Golf R32 round our way (among others), looks and sounds amazing lit up like a Christmas tree and at full chat, it was featured on Traffic Cops a couple of weeks ago.

Round here they are Mondeo's ST or a Skoda Estate VRs but they do have an unmarked scamera van!

Hampshire Police have several unmarked Octavia vRS's, both saloon and estate.

Seen several people pulled by them on the hard shoulder of the M27 in the last few weeks.

I have also recently seen an unmarked navy blue A3 3.2 in Lincs and also BMW 530/535? estate in the same colour.

Budget constraints - what budget constraints!

Yes but as criminals are released early or not even sent down in the first place for mugging old Ladies etc, we must keep up the war on public enemy #1 the 'speeding motorist'... :rolleyes:

The best bit is Suffolk have a Range Rover with the Supercharger and then powers at be wonder why the MPG is rubbish..

I don't live in Lincolnshire anymore, but as Chris B (if he's still on here?) will confirm, Lincs Police seem to have a history of all sorts of unmarked traffic weapons, I well remember them having a black M5 at one point and they've had numerous Imprezza's etc. Dark Grey Skoda Octavia VRS's seem popular with most forces these days. And for anyone who regularly uses the M6 Toll, be very wary of an 08 plate dark blue 5 series - think it's a 530d SE - I've seen it several times hauling people in - though drivers do seem to treat the Toll road as some kind of racetrack!!!

Thanks for that, I've been off here for a long time and missed that tragic news.
