    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9cdti (120)

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 45k

    Question Vectra = rozzers

    So I just parked up in the White City Estate, Shepherds Bush, London (for those who know it) to pick up a mate around 10pm, left it running, killed the lights. Me in driver seat in a black polo, girlfriend in passenger seat white shirt with jumper. Guy in his 30's 40's rides past on the pavement on a cycle and says "Evening Coppers". Bog standard silver, SRI with rear tints.....

    Does the Vectra have such a blatant rep as a unmarked cop car?

    Your stories please

    Should have grabbed him, and got a fixed penalty of £60 for riding on the pavement!

    Lol, only other story was on the M40 westbound, overtaking slowly in a que of traffic in lane 3 of 3. I watch a car undertake the line of traffic in lane 2 in my mirrors untill he passes the car behind me. He/she hits the brakes and fades of behind me never to be seen again. He/she could have continued to undertake me as there was nothing in front in lane 2.

    Vectra....it demands respect...

    i had been to a local breakers where they only let you in with fluorescent safety tops on, i was in my vec heading down the motorway minding my own business (forgot to take the top off lol) when i saw a black focus with a skin head chav driving and full of his mates, come screaming down the outside lane, i was watching as he had already caught my attention due to the speed he was going, then as he went to shoot past me, i noticed him look in horror as he must have noticed the fluorescent top, and he jumped on the brakes, indicated and pulled in politly behind me, and his speed dropped from about 95-100 down to about 60 which i was doing, and never overtook my for the next 25 miles until i pulled off

    My dad used to have a White Sierra Saloon years ago, I used to work in a shop and wore a white shirt, you can imagine the fun I used to have with that one.
