    Here's a strange image to stumble across. Anyone spotted one of these on the roads?

    3735646506_0507ebed49_o.

    This particular one is from Wiltshire.

    Its a 2.2 ES GT I think. No parking sensors and a downward firing exhaust

    Yeah it's an I-DTEC, exhaust gives that away. I think it's actually a Type-S:

    EDIT: That said, haven't seen a Type-S on standard alloys before.

    We'll have some of the diesel owners down at the station asking for modifying tips.

    Body is not Type-S. That would have parking sensors front & rear, PLUS headlight washers.
    As @MickyB eluded, we don't know what's under the bonnet. That could be the 180 ?

    All type-s have clear indicators hence its a ES GT. :Wink:

    Police generally remap the cars and update the suspension but I doubt theyll have done that to this car.

    Theres a free phone number on the car. Why doesnt someone call them up to find out what the spec is? you can get them to join up too :Grin:

    I think it was Jersey Police that were running 7th Generation Accords a while back.#

    Obviously Wiltshire police have sense and have implemented a No Swindon Tin policy....a bit like myself.

    So, HUK, you axe the Accord there is another customer you have p***** off..... Can't see any Swindon $hy!£ in that photo! :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :Rolf: :GoodJob:

    When I worked for Costcutter supermarkets as a UK merchandising supervisor I was sent to Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, many of the police cars were Accords. Including a Tourer. Awesome to see. This was back in 2003

    If I was the drive of NSX cop car I would just pretend to chase criminals all day!

    Never seen a marked Accord, but plenty of undercover 8th an d7th gen Accord in London.
