Yes. 5 series. But not an M3.

The traffic division used to have Volvo 850 T-5's.

And yes they have unmarked cars such as Subaru Imprezas, and indeed an unmarked Ford Escort Cosworth, but these were one off's, and for a special division of the police force. But they are not normally using police markings.

There is no way this is nothing other than a publicity stunt.

This is the same car as used by various Dutch journalists, TV shows etc. Look at the number plate. They've just stuck some "politie" stickers on it.

Similarly, the UK police force used a Lotus Esprit Sport 300 back in the early 90s for publicity purposes.
