Default M25 unmarked police cars

Forgot about this till now, but yesterday morning, I saw an unmarked Saab saloon, a 9-5 I think, in what appeared to be light blue, on the M25 at Leatherhead. They had someone on the hard shoulder and I saw the 'police' sign in the rear window.

The 9-5 Aero, in particular the manual, is a pretty rapid car, for a large saloon.

Anyone know of any other plain brown wrappers out there?

I'm not sure about the colour - there's no light blue available on Saabs at the moment and I can't one being resprayed. It must have been some other light colour. It was early and pretty miserable out there.

I was somewhere in south london, on the A23... I forget where exactly, but somewhere between Purley and Brixton I think... and saw a dark blue old shape Honda something with blue lights behind the grille!

it was a minty green/ grey car - saw it busting someone on the A3 about a week ago - also followed it onto the M25 southbound (towards leatherhead) last weekend

Humberside and Yorkshire police forces run a lot of unmarked cars, They had two Subaru Impreza's with all the bells and whistles! and a siren and some natty flashing lights in the grille

There is a Mitsubishi EVo running on the A1 too. I saw it near Newark last weekend.

What was wrong with the black rover 90 with a hand bell?

Hmmmm, I work am working for the Met Police at the moment. I park in the yard of each station that I visit.

How much trouble would I get in for listing all the unmarked cars that I find in the yards
