    Wow that is terrible
    Is it bad to think that it is a good job they found your keys , or they could have done the same to you and your family , I am sure pulling a gun is worse than them taking the car while you slept

    Sorry my dear , but hope you get the car back

    How did you transfer a new car to an old policy and not get told it was about to run out ? I am with Admiral and they renew automatically unless you cancel and i do pay once a year . I would have words with your insurance company.

    It's a shocking story and my heart sank for you as I read it - fingers crossed the car turns up. As others have said, thank god you don't have a stolen car and traumatised wife to deal with.

    Audi's are a wanted model, I think it was on here or some other forum about how there was a possibility information is being fed with regard to prestige models.

    Can't help but think Audi staff have something to do with this....

    Many thanks for all the kind comments.

    Lat few years i have paid monthly and the insurance just rolls on bye , but because i paid for the year in one payment, they need to re-quote me and i have to except it.
    With the 6 week old baby and many other things going on i was positive i had never received a renewal letter. They say they sent one , cant win.

    Understand your mood right now, but how's the dog doing? If you can, it's best to send her for a checkup.
    They drugged the dog but has been checked by the vets and is all ok,

    Still in shock to be honest..

    Thanks again.. i will keep the thread updated

    not insurers responsibility by any means. To do this they would have to store your payment details and the majority of folk may not like this without their agreement. All f not most insurers will send a renewal notice approximately 14 days to 1 month before renewal. Some insurers send further letters if you don't renew chasing your business if you haven't renewed. Why something like this would be overlooked when it is so important for an expensive car I struggle to come to terms with...

    However I can't imagine the pain you're going through mate after a very traumatising experience. I'm glad you're all ok physically.

    It's a shame you reported it to the police on a instinctive basis or you could of played the 'it was stolen during the night and I didn't hear anything' line but the police will write a report based on the time it was stolen and the insurer will buy a copy of it while processing the claim

    One option is to speak to your insurer and pay the renewal premium now follwoing from the expiry time and see if they will pay the claim based on an unfortunate oversight? I know this happened a couple of times when I worked in insurance and the claim was processed. Long shot but it's better than no hope for you mate...

    just to add, make sure you get to speak to a chief underwriter or something and if you have been with for a number of years throw this into the discussion...

    Just keep your chin up and be thankful that you and your family are okay, wish you the best with the insurance company.

    I'm speechless, yet so angry even though it's not my car. I'm absolutely gutted for you Crypric, I really hope things turn out for the better in some way, I know how horrible it feels to be burgled and the feeling of your home being violated, but to add to that the loss of your new car is horrific.

    Heart wrenching stuff but keep your chin up mate!

    As the other guys, I hope you are able to recover from this as quickly and effortlessly as possible.

    Hopefully there will be a possibility to make a claim through the insurance somehow.

    Just a quick update.

    The insurance company are having non of it , and on paper i can see why.

    I pay the premium 540 from the date mine expired.

    Insurance pay me 37000 for replacement car.

    They simply said, that as of date and more specifically time of car being taken i was not insured , if i had been paying monthly and i had a direct debit i may have had an argument. But as i had paid for a year , the policy started and ended.

    Personally i think they must be over the moon not having to pay out 37000 lets face it if it was my company so would I.

    I would rather not say where i live as i am so nervous about this kind of theft happening.

    I would hope that they find their targets by simply driving around looking for them , but i am convinced they use a different source , be it forums or car dealer staff or even insurance companies.

    We now have cctv linked to a security company on the outside of the house and the most ridicules alarm upgrade, red care panic buttons the works. My neighbour down the lane was telling me the other day that he has lived here for 30 years and its only the 8th burglary.

    The problem is the cars now days, it's such an easy earner for them all they need are the keys and they are off even if they get 10 grand for it. Its One thing to sell , that they will have a contact for , not like the old days where they have to go routing round the house for bits and pieces and selling them off leaving trails for each piece sold.

    Brake in find keys , or brake in threaten owners take keys , leave ..sell car to contact and gone.

    Its f**king depressing that we work hard buy nice things and some body comes into our homes and takes them.

    I have lost my faith in society and human kind

    Well for today anyway.

    Thanks for all the kind thoughts and wishes ,

    PS: any one have a gun for sale ?

    I feel your feelings after recently going through a similar experience. Sometimes you doubt owning nice cars. Where abouts are you based? North West. ( I am intrigued )

    They simply said, that as of date and more specifically time of car being taken i was not insured , if i had been paying monthly and i had a direct debit i may have had an argument. But as i had paid for a year , the policy started and ended.

    Personally i think they must be over the moon not having to pay out 37000 lets face it if it was my company so would I.

    I would rather not say where i live as i am so nervous about this kind of theft happening.

    I would hope that they find their targets by simply driving around looking for them , but i am convinced they use a different source , be it forums or car dealer staff or even insurance companies.

    We now have cctv linked to a security company on the outside of the house and the most ridicules alarm upgrade, red care panic buttons the works. My neighbour down the lane was telling me the other day that he has lived here for 30 years and its only the 8th burglary.

    The problem is the cars now days, it's such an easy earner for them all they need are the keys and they are off even if they get 10 grand for it. Its One thing to sell , that they will have a contact for , not like the old days where they have to go routing round the house for bits and pieces and selling them off leaving trails for each piece sold.

    Brake in find keys , or brake in threaten owners take keys , leave ..sell car to contact and gone.

    Its f**king depressing that we work hard buy nice things and some body comes into our homes and takes them.

    I have lost my faith in society and human kind

    Well for today anyway.

    Thanks for all the kind thoughts and wishes ,

    PS: any one have a gun for sale ?
    Stuff the guns mate - more trouble than they're worth...

    It's gutting mate - honestly is.

    Sometimes cars are parked up as they're checked to see if there's a tracker fitted so still hope its picked up but i guess day by day its fading...

    I'm keeping an eye out on the local estates anyways

    I hope you get a good outcome fella...i really hope you do.
