RNS-E Stolen from RS3 in showroom
The day I picked up my S3 from the main Audi dealership in Edinburgh they had 2 pikeys steal the RNS-E unit from the RS3 in the showroom. Blatant theft right in front of staff and CCTV. One guy in the car with a backpack and the other deflecting people away from the vehicle. It was all caught on camera and took less than 2 mins for them to get it out, to them leggin it out of the garage. They were chased but vanished into thin air I believe. You would think that being in a state-of-the-art garage with security cameras etc etc would put the would be thieves off......think again.
Another 3 stolen units......
Just thought I'd keep you updated as to the thieving sc*ms work in the Bradford area, both myself, my mate in the next street and someone else we know about 5 mins down the road had our RNS-E's stolen....in the same night....within about 10 minutes of each other. No damage to the dash, very little damage to the window frame, same way in (breaking the passenger window).....very professional job...unfortunately.
We all got together last night and have the same problem, if we buy new units, whats to stop the same cnuts from coming back and robbing us again?? Unfortunately, thinking about it, I have no choice but to sell the car as I had the black plastic fog light surrounds stolen 2 weeks ago and am certain some has targeted my car for 'spare parts'. my wife is terrified that we will get broken into for the keys one night. my only choice now is to sell my baby and opt for a run-around that draws no attention but i am so annoyed at having to do this out of fear.....
I spoke to the chap at the garage who fitted my glass and he said it was the 9th one he'd done in the space of a month, all exactly the same MO, always A3's, always through the passenger window side.
I lie in the Bradford area so if you have an A3 with the RNS-E unit, please please please be careful as at this moment in time, they are vanishing into thin air.
Hope this helps some people
