    I'm not speed trained either so I can't issue speeding tickets, according to Police policy.

    I think the lack of desire comes from being a farmer and knowing that getting stuck often means a long walk back or even getting a digger in.

    @Savage1 Just on the subject of driving, I've often wondered how long police hang onto their Holdens for? Is there some sort of criteria that once they reach x mileage or similar, they're binned? What happens to them once they're at the end of their life?

    About 150 - 175,000kms. They get stripped of add-ons and end up at Turners.

    JoshC is right, when they get replaced depends on how much money the district has. You don't want to buy an ex general duties car, but the other would be OK to buy.

    I looked at a couple of ex highway patrol cars for the missus. 2007-8 sv6, 160 odd thousand kms, very good service history --- anything that needs doing gets done, upgraded suspension, brakes and some are chipped. Other than a few wee cosmetic things that could be tidied up easily, they were a good buy in my opinion. Usually selling between $11-15K. Car dealers usually out-bid you, tidy them up and re-sell them for $20K plus.

    /pedant alert!

    "Flashed" or "remapped" would probably be a more accurate description as "chipped" implies the addition of a microprocessor which is way old-skool method of modification. I'd be interested to compare the factory Vs upgraded map.

    @DAF Sorry but - I can't edit my post above, forbidden again. (edit: But i was able to edit this one)

    I was going to ask - do cops fill their cars with 91, 95 or 98? I assume they roll with BP fuel cards because I always see them filling up at that company's stations.

    It's most definitely not the same thing but admittedly most people use it (not just Kiwis) as a blanket term for engine control modification.

    A lot a still chipped, piggy back system to avoid warranty issues.
