Saw the South Wales lot had a parallel thread in their section:

http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=238...

Had a close shave myself last week ....

Very inconspicuous looking dark metallic grey BMW 330D, registration WX56 PJJ.

Cruises M4 around junctions 15 / 16 and beyond. Followed me up the A419 and turned off at the A420 junction, so I would suspect it's based at Gablecross.

Anyone care to add to the list ?

What makes them stand out from other cars. I drive all over the south west and this could be very useful to me! I would like to return the favour but I'm not certain how to pick them out.

usually 2 rear view mirrors,or look for unusual devices in the back window if following or at the front windscreen if being followed!

This might sound daft but look out for any of the cars listed above being driven within the speed limit. ie be careful what you overtake. Also, if you see a car approach from the rear at speed and then back off at a safe distance slow down without using the bakes.

In my experience the BIB are fairly tolerant as long as the speed is not excessivly over the limit and you are demonstraring good awarenes and control.

It's the s****ng cameras you need to watch out for !

I always thought the Volvo was dark green,, although I could be wrong (unless there's more than one)
