    STOLEN & FOUND! - Astra GSi Turbo RED

    Hi all,

    About 1 Hour ago I noticed that my car had been stolen from outside my house.

    Its a Red 52 Plate ASTRA GSI TURBO with tinted number plates, dark grey GSi Alloys and Euro Style Lights.

    I know the car was there at 1pm and I have still got both sets of keys for the car.

    I only woke up at that time cause my little one woke up otherwise me and the missus never heard anything at all.

    I live just outside Milton Keynes so I would appreciate it if any can help maybe if you hear something or see it.

    Many thanks

    Sorry to here this mate, there are some right scum out there. Is it possible to have a bit more of the reg so people an keep an eye out? apart from what you mentioned above is there anything else thats distinctive about it? Dont suppose the police were that bothered either.

    Any idea how they took it, broken glass on the drive?

    Bolino, Sorry to hear your car has been stolen, not the greatest news to wake too

    I am in Northampton. Could you possibly post your reg, and I will keep an eye out since we are next door.

    EDIT: Does the car still look the same as it does on your avatar?

    Hi all and thanks for the concern and help.

    Luckely the car was found at 6am this morning in a garage in Luton (no blimming surprises there...). The car had a Trackstar unit on it and so the police started looking for it straight away and it is now in a secure police lock up waiting to have the ferrensic team look at it after xmas.

    Apparently the only damage is a broken door lock and steering lock im going to let the insurance sort all that out.

    As soon as I have it back though im going to fit a delocked drivers door handle, a Cat 1 aftermarket alarm fitted to it and im going to have a bollard fitted in on the driveway so I can put it up during the night. In other words im taking no chances from now on.

    Thanks again.

    Damn couldn't believe this reading it, christmas eve aswell.

    Some right scum out there, but now i'm pretty pleased for you after reading its been recovered.

    Did they actually get the car running and drive it there? or did they tow it or something?

    I just hope whoever has taken it get what they deserve.

    Good thing you got the trackstar unit though, or you probably wouldn't have seen it again

    All in all a sad story, but with a somewhat happy ending, just hope they sort it for you

    Good news mate... at least the damage is easy enough to sort out. Maybe the forensics will get something to go on, but I'd be surprised if they caught anyone. Main thing is you get your baby back pretty much in one piece

    EDIT: Changed your post title for you so everyone sees the good news
