SA police have only had SV6s for years.... we in NSW have been spoilt with V8s for the last 28 or so years....

Thats funny. I'm used to sourcing new and SH parts from shops ebay and Gumtree where 40 or 50 dollars is expensive.
I guess we will all pay for the demise of Aussie manufacturing.
Remember growing up in the 70s Police even had 2 door Chargers. And NSW govt cars were Ramblers. But in a sign of the times even the local Police station has been knocked down and high rise flats are going up..

I wonder what Heinrich Fritz Frankfurter, chief BMW designer would think of a big 5 post bullbar...?

Well....got a BMW the other week. I was sceptical I will admit but after a 900 km shift...bloody hell, talk about a nice car. Only problems I noted were that they sound like a colorado and you even after 12 hours I hadn't mastered half the features.

I've ALWAYS loved Commodores but after this the old VF2 seemed a bit second-rate.. but they are half the price of the Bavarian Falcon I suppose...

If this is progress, i have been dragged kicking and screaming into the driver's seat and I don't mind it at all.....

Hmmmmm.

And it was hard to drive the creaking old rattly VP home that night. Shows how far we've come...
