I get pulled over at 5am on my way to work, happening at least once a week for last few months now. Right outside work is the best :blah:

Nice to know that if your car woz stolen they'd be on the ball enuf to pull it over but the "sorry sir we've pulled you over as alot of Imprezas and Evos have been stolen recently in this area" is becoming a lil tiresome now :rolleyes:

What do those percentages mean? 31% of all cars stopped were Evo's and all cars stopped were one of these 4 cars :confused:

..never been stopped by police.

BUT...coming back from France on the Ferry, my car was searched by the French Customs at 2 separate points, and then I was questioned heavily by UK Customs on this side !

I guess it is reassuring that they are at least pretending to do their job !

I was stopped twice in my Evo 6 but on both times was early AM and was seens a little sideways, Got the Evo 8 and was stopped about 5 times in the first couple days but I did have one of the first 8's on the road and all of them wanted to look at it , Dont think they even asked my name on the 8.

Cosworth umm different story used to get pulled a couple times a week until they knew me

I had an escort cosworth for two years and never got stopped. I bought a yellow evo 7 in february. And got stopped four weeks later. for having an illegal front number plate, but after looking on the dvla website about imported cars. i found that my plate was legal so have put it back on. I now keep the dvla printed document in my car. :)

only had my evo 6 for a month , not been stopped........yet. got plenty of pull overs in my st24... "tints are to dark" had the roadside test.... passed. "exhaust to loud, you have no catalyst"....M.O.T station passed with flying colours, emissions 0%.
"you were doing 60mph in a 40 mph" i asked to see the video evidence.... reply .. he pointed at HIS speedo !!! My reply" see you in court"

went to the police station and complained about being pulled more times than a 15 yr old lad with a computer in his bedroom.

The said officer rang me on my mobile to apolagise, came round my house to give me my driving licience back..... his final words were " nice motor"

My advice if you dont want to get pulled and be on next years stats....... drive within the law at all times, and if you see the police, pull along side , winde the window down, smile and say....." Nice day officer..................IN'IT " :coolsm:
