Local LEOs say they are really expensive and may not fit the budgets of many departments. Wait and see...

Wow diesel cop cars? 130 hz-350 hz bass siren? Is that one of those "brown noise" machines ? hoseable rear passenger compartment ? Is this the gestapo coming???

very much so. after they done beat the living hell out of your they can wash it all out. no evidence

I dont think there was ever a manufacturer who created a car solely to be a police car from top to bottom. It's pretty intense.

I like it, but it's going to cost a fortune. However, departments could save a fortune in fuel. Diesels have great mileage, and most metro areas are within range of a biodiesel supplier. Since as far as I know police depts usually have their own fueling depots, they could use bio in all the cars and save even more money.
