Im fucking sick of these scunners, they have nothing better to do that to rome the streets looking for things to steal.

They broke into my car about 2 months ago from my work place and stole everything, now they have go into it again outside my house and took the lot again.

Its the same people who did if before, Police have been and took fingerprints so i hope they catch the fuckers who did it.

I wouldnt mind 10 minutes alone with them, but most likley if i did i'd be the one spending a prison sentance.

yup u would....if you got caught

if you got the money, plan to do mods like window tints (much harder to get in as they cant break the glass), alarm (for obvious reasons), maybe de-locking too, they won't know what to do!

also, when i'm in places i dont know too well, or just dodgy places, i turn my music right down, so no1 thinks "he must have loads of gear in there, lets nick it tomorrow night" or whatever.

this thread would be better suited in general chat too mate

unlucky m8, i ahte thieving shites.

yeah get the tints and alarm b4 you put your next HU in, but why don#t you take the FACE with you?

most companies offer an insurance service so that you can send the face back along with a police report and they send you out a new one....

why did you leave your phone in the car

sorry to hear bout it though

yeah, fucking scunners.

I left my phone in the door pocket and i left the facia on by accident. Its the first time i have ever left it on and it gets nicked straight away !!!

Im sure loads of people on here have left the faicas on by mistake. I know i wont be doing it again !!!

I hope some results come from the fingerprint checks the police did on it.

Im gonna get you you thieving bastards whoever you are !!!!

I was contemplating not insuring my alloys when I get them but it is because of those fuckers out there that I'll have to- be pissed off if they got nicked and even morepissed off if I knew I wouldn't get anything back for it!

If I were you, I'd leave my car outside my house with the door open slightly (so the light is on) and sit in a hedge with a baseball bat (presuming it's the same people).

I'd feel exactly the same way- 10mins, just 10 mins!!!

Do you insure alloys seperately?

My first mod was an alarm too Lucky crime where I am is releatively low, my HU fascia doesn't come off.

You just tell the insurance company and they'll tell you how much extra to have them covered.

They just ask for the value of the alloys/tyres. For me, an extra 57

Cheers R8cr - if you claim for just the alloys does it lose you your no claims bonus?

Yes, any claim made on your insurance except for replacement windscreen glass will definatly take away your no claims entitlement unless you have it protected.

I installed a remote locking kit which locks and flashes the indicators.... looks like an alarm tomost people.

Only way to stop your car getting nicked is to make it look crap

Yeah Dicky, same here, if the stereo still plays when the key is out you have to pay attention to it then you down forget to take it out.
