Got my ex police XR8 from Pickles in Sydney december 2001, was able to chase up the cop who had it (45, only driver, country patrol) checked out its service history and it had an NRMA inspection rating of 9.5/10. Got it for $26K, did 50,000 km on it and had it 2 years, nver missed a beat. Sold it last month for $24K. It is definitely worth just going along to a couple of them to get to know the process and the regular dealers and purchasers who buy every week. Check the obvious things like which govt department had it, any warranty left, tyre wear ie: scrubbed up against gutters etc.
