You know the car.

Since last time, I've put on four new Falken Sincera Sn250 A/S.

These Falkens have got some real grip. banana

- Was retired, sat for (reportedly and approximately) 6 months.
- Sold at auction in early 2016 to a local dealer.
- I purchased it from that dealer.

It is my current daily driver and has been since the day I purchased it in 2016, save the time it was in for paint and the subsequent buffing.
- Funny story regarding her name. My wife actually didn't want a former police vehicle of any sort. So she was against the idea. However I had wanted one for quite a while, even prior to our meeting, so I pressed ahead with it. Put in over a year of research and hunting, in fact. Just after the 5-O was ours, we referred to her as "The Siren Mobile", "Bacon" and a few others. But nothing stuck. Time passed. One night my wife watched an episode of the original Hawaii Five-O series (from the 60s/70s). She then hummed the theme song for approximately 5 days straight and what a joy it was to listen to it for those 5 days. However she did so primarily when we were driving around in our new CVPI. I mistakenly thought that she connected the two and was giving me grief (ergo sheeet) because we were carting ourselves around in a former police car that she didn't want. As it would turn out, the two were coincidental and she had actually accepted the idea by that point. However I didn't know that at the time and thought she was messing with me. We discussed it sometime later, laughed and summarily dubbed her "The 5-O". She's been known as such ever since.

Much, much more here.
