Re: Police Forces Wasting Money?!

Though I'd have thought that any police vehicle would end up chopped in at auction (after being stripped down to its original spec.) I'm not sure that residuals are going to be particularly high on anything that's been battenburged.

Perhaps BMW are prepared to sacrifice a large chunk of their profits (and maybe even sell below cost) for the prestige of having their cars seen as the car of choice for police vehicles. Stranger things have happened - I've certainly heard of Ford selling to major clients at below cost in order to keep their sales figures looking good.
