  • VXR's give you a bad reputation?

    I was parked up in a car park waiting for a mate at about 1:30am last night. It was a small local shop car park in a housing estate. I was sat there for 2 minutes and a car pulled up behind me. Think it was a skoda, not sure but they had parked right up behind me so I couldn't go anywhere. I just thought it was someone local being dropped off. But next thing I know 2 coppers have walked up to me in the car.

    Apparently they assumed I was a drug dealer cause I was parked in a "rather flash high performance car" and that a lot of dealers come down from London in them as they can out run most of the police cars lol.

    I wasn't bothered I knew what the estates reputation was like and that fair enough they were doing there job and they were perfectly polite and honest with me. So fair play to them, plus if my car had been kicked atleast they'd of got it before it had a chance to do a runner lol.

        yeah i get pulled for driving down the road because they think the car is not mine, and i am not a chav and dress very smart all the time.

        good to know that if it did get nicked there is a chance they will get pulled,

        I think the police just get bored.

            Cops are OK so long as you don't get cheeky with them. I don't have any problems with them stopping me as I am totally legal. As you say - if your car had been nicked then it would have been back with you fairly quickly,
