    Default Unmarked cars spotted

    I've spotted a couple of unmarked Police Veccys working the highways and byways recently. One was on the A1 by teh Welwyn exit, the other of the A6 just north of Luton. Both metallic blue, both with twin exhausts. The one on the A1 was definitely a V6 turbo -he was parked at an accident, and I went past very slowly. Not sure about the other.

    Obviously, nobody here ever exceeds speed limits or drives in any way other than safely and considerately, so you won't need to worry. Just thought you'd like to know.

    V6-T are the default SVO spec now. Guess they decided the 2.2Direct isn't good enough for the petrols. Both the 1.9CDTi-150 and V6-CDTi are offered as well.

    Saw six of them a few mornings ago. (3.2 and 2.8). Oh, and two unmarked Volvos, one unmarked BMW and four unmarked ST220s.

    There is a common theme here - although the cars are unmarked, they aren't hard to spot if you are being observant and passing at a speed slow
    enough to notice the details (like the driver in uniform?). It also helps that the cars are ones that I'm interested in.

    Cars you are very unlikely ever to see as an unmarked traffic car:
    - Alfa Romeo
    - Fiat
    - Renault
    - Bentley
    - Aston Martin
    - Yugo
    - TVR
    etc.

    Down here we have BMW's, Skoda Octavia vRs, Merc E-Class, Volvo V70. Not seen many svo spec veccies, yet.

    I get a choice of the Volvos and BMWs (although they're not quite finished yet)

    The Vectra's and ST220's are for the local lads.
