Interesting to see unmarked BMW I3 electric with a very nice lady officer behind the wheel who said great little car we have 60 of them - In the words of the late Shaw Taylor keepem peeled.
60 that’s loads, they must be keeping them at the depot so they don’t get crashed hehe

Can’t say i’ve seen one yet.

M25 tonight clockwise near Heathrow @5:20pm. Unmarked convoy consisting of Audi A3 in Grey, VW golf in Silver, Unmarked black bike, BMW 3 series dark colour, Audi Q7, Seat Leon, a silver Passat plus possibly another unmarked bike behind!

I thought there were cut backs on the number of police! wink
That will just be a surveillance team on the way to somewhere to park up for 8 hours and watch Netflix.

Got a fair few of those in town. Nothing exciting from what I have heard.

You live in the road between Farnborough North and Farnborough don't you? I am always cycling up and down there and wonder which house is yours. One of them has those xmas lights that face the house and light it up like snow, very posh.

Me, Farnborough? - No. I live quite close to Kinky in the Sunningdale area.

Another spot in Camberley - LJ14 CWC white Focus Estate, pulled someone just past the station.

Burgundy Audi A6(?) Avant un-marked coming out of the depot in Whitley, Reading the other morning.
Wouldn't normally have given it a second glance but for the two rather large gents in the front seats.
Also a black Rangie un-marked near Suttons roundabout a couple of weeks ago - looked like they'd stopped off for coffee at the Costa drive-through by the cups perched on the dash-board.

Looks like it was a busy Wednesday afternoon on the M25 - 2 marked with a few unmarked cars and a dog car flying up the hard shoulder when all traffic had been stopped at Cobham 5.15pm. Was it change over time.

Bit of a collection from recent spots by the family:

ST17CXK
Black X5

PO18 FNC
Silver Mercedes coupé

NV17 DSE
Audi A4 grey

From the considerable info on this thread, my guess is that the Audi & Merc aren't traffic cars.

In Reading a few times in recent weeks a Silver Ford CMax.
Completely standard looking, apart from the time it had all its hidden strobes on.
Didnt have the usual OU plates either.

Could be a fire chief, used to have one lived a few roads down from us - he drove a series of private SUV's with strobes in the grill and inside the windscreen.

A silver Passat R36 estate going past mill pond McDonald’s in Bracknell yesterday evening with the blues on, not sure I’ve seen that around before.

Pulled over a Lamborghini right on a blind corner. So a bit of a iffy spot. Guess it was an urgent stop to pull them over there.

Don't tell me - on the by-pass where the speed limit drops to 40 (from 70) when approaching the traffic lights from the South.
Must be like shooting fish in a barrel!

The lights always encourage some people to give it some boot to make them too. hehe

Here's a little list from recent spots around reading. I'm a bit of a spotter and have gained a bit of a collection...

Coolest car on the list is a Passat R36. Not sure what it's used for but seen it on blues. Mondeo's are dog cars and the BMW's are mostly traffic I believe. Outlanders are possibly MOD police for AWE?

LC20 DND BMW X5 Grey
LM60 VTL Volkswagen Passat R36 Silver
LP20 SVO Volvo V60 R-Design Grey
