    I hope they crash it and die a slow and painful death in a ball of flames.

    How did they steal it? With the keys? Low loader? or hotwired it somehow?
    As there have been quite a lot of VXRs been stolen with no sign of break in and no keys being stolen off the owners.
    Don't know if there is a flaw with the VXRs making them easy to open and start up with a laptop or somehow?

    Not a massive deal. Vauxhall have plenty of unsold stock so I hear.
    Just a shit that the end user will have a delayed delivery.

    That's a bit of a pants start for the new owner, lets hope he has better luck second time round.

    If someone called me and told me my car had been stolen before it was due to arrive with me I would probably think it was someone on a wind up. Oh to be a fly on the wall.

    Bloody hell they didn't waste anytime and they know there cars well!!! All 1998 VX are fitted with software lock immobilizers and there should be a fail safe so that you can't get the code with out the key transmitting to decoder, They are either really hi tech and thatcham should hire them or they have keys, the other interesting thing will be to see what area they are disappearing from

    Do the bergs come with the keyless entry??? It's supposed to be quite hard to steal with the KES
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
