DDU 1: Either the 5 series or a Mondeo

Traffic Corp Car: Volvo XC70 (Like the RSU but adapted for traffic work)
Traffic Corp Jeep: The Landcruiser seems to do the job.

Response vehicle: BMW 525i (petrol), Skoda vRS 2.0Tfsi, Opel Isignia, Mondeo 2.0, etc
Second vehicle: Ford Focus Saloon (NOT 1.4)
Van: Transit, or else the Transit Torneo Connect (small one) with a cage that can be driven on car course
Com Pol: Our Fiesta/Yaris does the job grand. Or else something like a Hoda Jazz.
DDU 1: Mondeo is a great workhorse, just make them even more unmarked
DDU 2: Focus
DRUGS: Something completely obscure and unique to police work, and switched between districts every 3 months


Traffic Corp Car: Volvo V70/S60 2.0T/T5 or Octavia vRS estate (the xc70's are overkill, the 4wd isn't really necessary imo and makes it slower on a dry road)
Traffic Corp Jeep: Again Landcruiser is spot on, I think buying a €100k (retail) jeep like X5, RangeRover, Merc ML etc, is overkill.OTher option would be a Pajero.
