Yep, Dubai Police has taken delivery of 101 BMW 5-Series cars, half of which will be used as patrol cars. They are a good step up from the Mercedes-Benz C-classes, Toyota Fortuners and Nissan Pathfinders the cops keep trolling around in already.
An example of this car was first shown almost a year ago at some defence show in Abu Dhabi. Take heart in the fact that they are 530i models, so one could still get away with a reasonably fast car. Not that we condone such behaviour.
