AX59 AAF? -Stolen? (Police Interceptors)

Space Grey E90, LCI

Does that car belong to anyone here? - for some reason the number plate seems to ring a bell - maybe I've seen it on the road. Saw it on a part of the TV program yesterday

http://demand.five.tv/Episode.aspx?e...me=C5151070005
25 minutes onwards

Lots of E90s on this TV show by the way - episode 3 in particular

Yeah I thought about that.

But if your motor got nicked, would you really want it back? Who knows how it's been driven in that time...

Wasn't it a facelift 320d SE? Makes you wonder where the parts are ending up - ebay or dodgy repairers?

Also wonder what is the market for them - its under warranty for 3yrs so whos going to need a nearly new engine, gearbox, etc. outside the main dealer networK? Bodyparts slightly different of course. Could also be going abroad I guess.

I would, at least I could sell it on, if it didn't get found, I'd lose out on the insurance payout, unless you had GAP.
