Lightbar looks all wrong on it doesn't it? Looks way too small.

its due to the no scroll bar Brigade, plus there doesn't appear to be side volley lights on it either, although i could be mistaken, pic isn't that great and member who took it said the side lights were nowhere near as powerful looking as whats on existing light bars!

also car is less intimidating looking, the XC's that are in use atm, you can definitely tell what they are as they come up behind you on a road, volvo just looks like a standard estate, true test will be a blues response to see how good they are with our driving public!

Are these the ex-UK cars? Is the battenberg and lightbar what was on it when it arrived or were they put on here.

ex uk cars Brigade, would assume all new branding and lights when they arrived but one couldn't assume to be right in that regards knowing the job!

may have left all the looming and controls untouched and replaced light bar and livery, as thats definitely new!

My information is 3 v70's all t5 and either an s60 or s80 also t5

3 of the vehicles are ex Trojan and one is an ex-demo model from Volvo which I believe is a 2012

Don't believe the 40 would have the space requirements
