THIEVING SCUM!

Friday 28 March - 05:15 (yes, it is AM) went outside to find an absolute mess all over the road. Neighbour's car all smashed up and wheels stolen. Fairly common where we are. After about 5 minutes driving to work I suddenly had a thought, so I returned and checked my car too. Yes, someone had broken into her, too ;) Nothing was taken, but now I have a hole in the bodywork above the driver's door lock ... if only I could catch the thieving scum, I would boot them up the backside with my size 12 boots [:(!]

Really really sorry to hear that Steve!
I do hope this doesn't signal the end for the Panda.

No chance of that Si. I'm too attached to the old girl. It wouldn't have happened if I had dropped the rear shelf to show that the car was absolutely empty apart from a set of "PC Magazine" for 2002. Now it's been smashed ;) but it only cost me a tenner from Podders last time.

I feel very sorry for my neighbour though ...

Unfortunately, although we live in a pretty nice quiet area, we are visited by the low life pretty regularly. They come from outside the area!

Sorry to hear about the idiots Steve. We need a decent system for dealing with scum like them, something along the lines of having the mains connected up to their tackle.

When I got back tonight the neighbour's Rover was sporting a "new" set of wheels and he was cleaning up the broken glass. All I have for my troubles is a small hole above my driver's door lock.

This makes it just a teeny weeny bit vulnerable, but nobody will be able to drive it off anyway!!

The rear shelf is still intact - I just assumed it had been smashed as it was still dark at 5:15 a.m. I'm pleased as it is rather difficult to find one without loudspeaker holes cute out!

Thanks all of you for your support - it makes a group like this really worthwhile :):):)

I only just read this post and i'm sorry to hear about it.

Some tried to broke into my Uno, at 4-30am last year and did the exact same thing put a hole by the lock, if you have noticed once this is done it is very easy the pop the door pin open, luckily enough my dad heard them and they ran off, but I was very lucky because I left my mini disk player in there.

About 30 seconds after I phoned the police a patrol car was outside my house (must of been somewhere local), and he had phoned for back up and had requested the helicopter (which I thought was a bit extreme), but it was out of action.

They never caught the person responsible and I had to cough up 85 for getting it sorted

Sorry to hear about this[V][V][V]

Hope you can sort it Steve, and yes the weather's great and will be tomorrow too, surely a hint to get that gearbox fixed:D
I've just bought some de-locked handles for my Bravo to try and stop the above happening.

Sorry to hear your grief.It always worries me that I might catch someone breaking into one of mine. I am not noted for my tolerant nature and passive way of dealing with idiots[:(!] and no doubt it would be me in more trouble than they would have been!

Nige, I think I would lose it completely if I caught anyone even breathing on any of our cars, the best part of his life behind him [:(!][:(!] My Krooklok is just the right shape and size ...

And me a Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator too ...

And Gaz, the police came out to you??? God, they must have been pretty bored or very keen. I've forgotten what a copper looks like ;)

Steve, the police weren't gonna come out unless there was damage to the car, so had a look and luckily enough!!!, there was damage to the car, otherwise I would of had to wait until the next morning for some emmerdale type cop to come:p:p:p
