    Thieving w8nkers

    Hey people, cant beleive it, woke up this morning to find my car has been stolen!!!

    Its not as if its a common car round here, its an arden blue astra GSI with personalised number plate S7 CVO so it shouldn't be hard to spot. I have both sets of keys and there is no smahed glass on the floor. Are astra easy to break into? its alarmed, imobiliser, deadlocks etc

    Thieving little ******s

    Sorry to hear about your car mate, I can onnly assume they wanted your exact model

    It really isn't possible to get around the alarm or immobiliser without the keys, yes they can get around the deadlocks and open the doors but that wouldn't disarm the alarm

    It's got to have been towed away

    Possibly towed, but it is possible to take these without keys, it isn't easy, so these wouldn't have been your average hood rats who had it away. Again, no doubt stolen to order.

    At the end of the day,I wouldn't personally trust standard security on these, I wouldn't even bother with cat one stuff anymore (as I found out when my Series one RS turbo got stolen some years back) Tracker everytime for me now.

    I hope you get your car back mate, and I hope the fingers drop off whoever took it.

    Last summer someone stole a car outside my work by putting the car onto the back of truck. Of course I never thought anything of a truck turning up and then putting a car onto the back.

    Sorry that it happened to you m8!

    fooook thats really bad news mate. Just a thought has it been serviced lately ?
    Only reason i'm asking is that there could be some scumbag trainee copyed your key & got his mates to take a wee walk along too pay your gsi a visit? just a thought

    My nova a few years ago was stolen then drove it then parked her up same spot as i left her!!!. That happened for weeks untill i was out one evening & seen my nova drive past me wot a shock i got. phoned police & lad got caught thats how it had been done
    Scary thought tho my fingers will be crossed for you
