    we have 5 series diesel BM`s for work and apart from being rather quick they dont make any strange noises apart from the two tones and the barking police dog in the back

    yes on tick over , but not when he has his for down and driving should be quiet, I can say I am impressed with the 5 series at high speed very quick and stable

    correct :thumbsup:...
    and less of the " you people":x

    The ex has a 3 series diesel and there's no tick tick noise. The only noise really is when the turbo kicks in and then it's kind of a whistle noise, but certainly no tick ticks.

    What area you people patrol

    Lol funny thing was a few days back my cousin was driving a range rover vogue 04 plate hes 21 and as soon as the police saw how young he was they pulled him over but he was legit , should have seen there faces lol.

    Marzbars tell him to link me up with his ends init so i can drive a range rover.

    So out of interest then, as you've got a dog, do you only go out to really messy calls, or do you take your dog with you all the time anyway? And if you've got to bundle some arrogant little idiot in the back of the car, have they ever been frightened there's a big dog right near them? Just curious really cause you hardly ever see officers and dogs in my area, so didn't know if you were all kept away for 'special occasions'
