For the assistance of those who are shopping for a new 'Meega and perhaps unfamiliar on how to spot ex-Police vehicles, here is what a 'calibrated speedo' as fitted to Police and some military vehicles looks like.  Accompanied by the general lack of a sunroof, its one of the first give aways to show previous Police parentage.

...

This particular speedohead is from a pre facelift.  

  • There are either 1 or 2 mph increments instead of 5 mph.  
 
  • This particular one reads to 160 mph.  Some only go to 155 mph.
 

...

  • Perhaps most important, the calibration sticker which has a certificate number upon it and the white screen printed 'Calibrated by I.R.S. Limited Nottingham' on the actual face of the dial.  


Dont get caught out by the one or two previous owner descriptions.  Forewarned is fore-armed!!
