Yah...didn't the gov just layoff tens of thousands gov employee and cut the military budget???
"yah mate...let's save up the money and get some bimmers....all the cocks have moved on to Audis..."

Classy move by the coppers... even if it seems a bit strange, given the economics.

Maybe I could see buying them used after a lease or something, perhaps where the vehicle has 20k miles and the police can form a special in house BMW mechanic for maintenence stuff. But paying top euro for a luxury car in this economy?? And people wonder why less people file income tax every year. Who wants to pay for this??...
Actually, they always get cars brand new. For example, they had the E60 for the last 2 years and now they have F10 models already which are brand new. Same as the X5. After 2 years they have started using facelifted X5 models instead of just the original model. Yesterday I seen an X1 too.

Yes he did. He made cuts to social benefits that will hit the poorest and young/elderly the most. Also, there have been massive cuts to the police and they have even stopped recruiting in some areas. Yet they can afford these BMWs.

No you wouldnt lol. These marked BMWs are always traffic police and they are 9/10 times the biggest dicks ever. They waste your time too. Every time they pull you over checking all your documents then your tyre treads, lights etc. They even checked my friends windscreen wiper fluid which was empty and gave him a fine on the spot. They are just plain annoying.

isn't that sad. i'd rather have my police force drive renault, or peugeot, or anything small 'til the country get back into shape. It is not like thieves are going to get away with all that massive traffic. But you know there are more crooks on top, then actual crooks that rob banks, and steal people's wallets and such.

did the officer just ask your friend to spray the washer fluid?
then keep telling him to spray....then on the last drop..."oh...you've ran out of washer fluid...here's your ticket..."
