There is an unmarked 159 SW cop car in Birmingham. I spotted it today on the Hagley Road, minutes away from 5 ways.

It has the thin discreet lights on the roof and all the rest of the gear in the grill, i couldn`t see the back.

He didn`t wave.:cheese:

In Italy they use the 2.4 JTDm with an i on the end. One flew past me in Florence and it sounded very nice for a diesel

My Mum lives on Hagley Road (in Hagley itself) I'll pre-warn her she may get pulled over by a cool rozzer :lol:

She was a dark gold colour, I`ll try and find a pic....didn`t stand out at all if you wasn`t an Alfa Fan. First thing was the nose....then the roof bars, thats when i spotted the lights...seconds later she was next to me. ( Duel carriageway with no dividers)


Antony.....same car??? I will go down Rose road plod station and ask questions and get pics too. I have mates there

If you live in that area carry a spare pair of shades, just in case you get stopped and plod isn't wearing any.

Could have been an unmarked Ambulance car... YES, we do have them... Well in Norfolk anyways.

Driven by Paramedic mangers, usually in Civvies too, not the green uniform.

The Give Away would be the Green Diamond "Compressed Gas" sticker on the back.
