    Default 53plate 3.2 v6 ex cop car

    Ive just seen an ex cop car on a 53 plate for sale for 3500!!
    The thing i found unusual is that it still has the lights and seems to be tuned up. I spoke to the guy and he is looking to down size the garage and want rid of the car. he offered it to us at 2997. with no waranty!
    I want this my self but the misus would kill me as we already have 3 cars and a van,

    A bargin going begging!!

    TBH its going to be hammered. With it being a 3.2 it was obviously used as a proper traffic car. Traffic guys on here have said in the past to steer well clear.

    It will have been well serviced whilst in use and everything that needed doing would have been, however, every single day of it's life it would have been pushed to it's limit. I wouldn't buy an ex-police one, I know.

    For a track day car though????? Crack on!

    They are only serviced to the normal intervals and they are definitely not 'tuned'.

    Having driven Vectra's for many years in the job (both B's and C's) I can confirm this will have been thrashed to within an inch of it's life. They get sent to auction for a reason (they're knackered)

    Personally I would consider one newer but that 53 plate has had what ? about 5 years of being thrashed every day prob straight from a cold start too all I can see with that particular ex police car is ££££££££'s LOL !
