No more Australian cars.

That's brilliant! Both are very easy to spot head on.

Chrysler SRT???? How we gonna be able to tell the good from the bad guys now ?

Expensive to fix and run?????? Beema especislly. 😊

I did see a volvo highway patrol car yesterday. Looked pretty pimp. Xc70 model I think.

B M Trouble U , great .

Wonder if we will see any of them? Police too far & few between on major roads. City & country.

Will be as fast as the fatso's that drive them. 😁

They only use 4 door cars don't they?

Thijs goed opletten in dec en jan!

Hope they are cheap

That’s a shame
