    Blackve76 just before you go ahead check out what the possible costs of full insurance

    mate purchased a ex traffic car in Perth last year at the Auctions and it was ok some minor problems but when he went to get a full insurance cover it was massive almost the national debt or America due to his age and several accidents

    he ended up selling it at a loss

    History of car will not affect insurance cost, only history of driver / owner matters.

    Even after all these years, urban myths about a police car being better than a generic SS still abound; this tends to make the less-informed bid higher for them at auction. They did actually get HSV bits in years gone by, but that was a long time ago; VP's & VR's (but then they were actually Execs with Exec seats covered in SS trim; they were pretty de-specced).
    I've seen XR6T's and SS's in dealers cheaper than auction-results for ex-police ones.
    Plus they get pretty harsh treatment; sure they're well serviced, but they're also caned. I guess if you're planning on running 360rwkW through one, that might be irrelevant ... :) ... but I wouldn't pay more for it being ex-police.

    Any one gone to auctions

    I'm guessing say 28K, I wouldn't pay more than that.

    Insurance is same as any V8, maybe he was young.

    Haven't been to an auction for a while but I would say 25K for a car that would on average have high miles, have a thrashed engine and have been in several accidents.

    NSW XR6T police spec gets brembos all around, better suspension and fpv bf rims. Nice little upgrade - essential an F6 with the little turbo.

    Even after all these years, urban myths about police cars getting HSV bits still abound. Lets be clear, the *ONLY* police cars to receive anything 'go fast' mechanical over standard Holdens were the VK's where some got some HDT parts although none ever went to HDT as part of that process.

    From an insurance perspective anyone thinking about an SS or SSV auto could also consider a 6 litre Calais or Calais V (I think there is only Calais V in 6 litre now). Pretty sure insurance will be less.

    When buying a police car stick your head under it and have a squiz. We get police cars in for dented sumps, subframes, exhausts, heatshields and auto pans on a regular basis (one guy even told me of one that needed recovering after it got beached on a traffic island while in pirsuit).

    No, I saw some VP's & VR's at Pickles Belmore with HSV badging on under-bonnet bits. That also had big holes in dash & centre-console, where stuff had been screwed-in & removed, and often some nasty-looking stains on seats ...
