1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    We must be reading the same auto blogs [​IMG]

    Doesn't Cali still run a fleet of BMW M5's or something like that for high-speed chases? I know they had like 40 540i/6's and then switched to E39 M5's, about 10 years ago, but I don't know what happened after the economy fell apart...

    I think BMW gave the Spartanburg police department an M5 when they opened their plant there. Here in Cali, we have Camaro-driving police (the previous generation), ostensibly for chasing down big rigs. ORLY?

    Also lots of police motorbikes are Beemers.

    The one in the wreck is an older Gallardo than the one on the track. Does Lamborghini just send a replacement when the cops wreck it?

    I'd imagine that PD's have insurance like anyone else, and that when they crash, they get a payout that allows them to pick up a new Gallardo and have it resprayed in "Polizia" livery.
