    police car spec

    just saw a police sump guard on the classified section and i was wondering, what other bits do the cops have that aren't standard? and more importantly, where can one purchase them

    most of the police stuff is standard for there cars
    on the epc it classes most of the stuff for them
    having bad road package.
    its means there stuff is heavier duty as poilce cars
    take more hammer than a standard run of the mill

    uprated break pads and a few other bits, not sure what tho, and i think the smaller engined cars that wouldn't normally have rear discs have them

    My white 1.4 16v 2001 that I'm assert is an Ex police car, has a fair few things that weren't standard in astras

    Aesthetics wise:-
    Got a power supply/connection in the side of my dash
    Lots of wire hanging about the place
    Black SRI interior through out

    Mechanics wise:-
    Discs all around

    Thats about it really

    At TVP our vauxhalls are a special build, meaning they come as we ask.The astra H is standard 1.3/1.7 with sri interior,steel wheels,no radio.
    The vectra's are a special build too with sports suspension and interior. No tuning is done to the cars and all extra equipment is added after purchase.

    Where i work has a contract in doing the polics cars for bedfordshire. The ones in the workshop at the moment are ALL VXRs. All white with bog standard interiors. The only way you can tell on the vextra estates is that they keep the blue brake calipers for some reason.?? Bit of a giveaway methinks.
