Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

Was there many more? Or is it rewired Toyotas to try get the contract back? Can they be police specials seeing as they are refitted in Offaly after production?

Think they should be all estate cars.. more practable..carry lots more gear,etc...

Still cant understand why they never went down the road with skoda`s,170bhp tdi..
Way more room in them than current toyota`s..and a better car..:idea:

I dont believe Skoda responded to the tender. If they didn't there is nothing AGS can do.

Indeed, they will be much brighter too. I can't help thinking though, with the new breed of Ford engines, and the Mondeo's handling, why the new Mondeo TDCI wasn't the car to go for. More power, and better road holding. ( Well, the last model Vensi' wasn't a patch on the Mondeo ).

Avensis D4D - 140 bhp, Mondeo TDCI Ecoboost - 197 bhp?

Don't get me wrong, the new Avensis is a fine car, and I know cost will have had a factor in it.

Rear reds on the light-bar for all cars, about time.

And more importantly, front facing fogs. Why that was never a requirement was beyond me considering we are on the road in all weather conditions.

The Avensis was slated by our driving school instructors when they drove it . .as a ES car.

But it won the tender because cost obviously carried a huge loading in terms of results. And they were cheaper.

Do ye think that the regular cars should have battenburg markings too? I think it looks far better than the usual regular single hi vis stripe.
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.

Think its to do with motorway work and traffic cars. Doesn't make sense though as better visibility for the members, cars should be as visible as possible. We have 2 ambulances with full battenburg on the sides, well seen at night side on
