In our local gardai station theres a fiesta & focus estate, unmarked cars are usually mondeos.
Clive quick question. ..our area would be semi rural, why estate cars? I can undetstand for carrying dogs but surely on back roads estates would be nightmare, I drove my dad's Nissan primara estate thing was like a bus
Estates are generally used to allow for carriage of more kit in the back.
Personal kit bags plus road cones, signs and lights take up a lot of space.
Also estates tend to have tougher suspension to compensate for heavy loads which is useful.

And being Ireland, they can throw more drunks in the back to take them home!!!
Stopped the truck behind a damsel in distress yesterday standing beside her car with her phone in her hand. Asked her what the problem was and she said she had a flat tyre but no spare! Turns out she DID have a spare though
So I changed it for her and got her on her way again.
