Ah rumours you can't beat em. The thing is though there's some stations and units out there that are so badly stuck they'd nearly be glad to get a ride on lawnmower to drive to calls

They can buy some without tender. Look at the short wheel base Transits that are in Pearse St and Cork.

Yup don't forget about the office vans they might turned into public order vans


Was the Mobile Station van's not bought via a separate specific tender?

Ok the story is that yes Santa Fei's are being bought for traffic enforcement but no skodas. They are investing heavily in the fleet apparently as there is a budget left for this year.
