For A you'll need a uniform and badge. Not advisable.
For C you'll need the trays and chemicals. Not really practical in a car that will be driven.
For B you'll need strippers...wooohoo!
OK, serious now: Personally I don't think you'll like the red lights. The look like a good idea, but work poorly in practice. Aircraft use them because they don't normally have to read maps or looks for things while those lights are on. They have very limited use by the cops, too, because they just don't supply enough light for reading (how they're writing tickets with them where you are is a mystery). They tried them here locally and went back to normal lighting pretty quickly. When they got them bright enough to see things (printed material like a ticket) they were WAY brighter than what you'd probably use, and they were just as bad as normal lights in regards to damaging night vision.

buying a ratty example (of a BMW) is a parasitic relationship.(and you ain't the mosquito)
