    Sorry to hear Jo, will keep my ears and eyes open and put the word out to a few contacts in the area.

    Also have you posted this on ed38?

    Maybe worth putting it on there, I'm sure they would sticky it on there.

    The door wasn't actually broke, there's a vent thing and they levered it off! Surprised they got in through it, it's not much bigger than a cat flap!, only wider!!

    ***UPDATE***

    Just got a call from the police, the car has been found and recovered!

    It was running a different set of number plates, I have no information on condition or whats left etc., car needs to stay in compound for forensics for a few more days before being released and a recovery charge to be paid.

    Thanks.

    That's ace mate! Quite scary how it happens, and with the change of plates etc. What's the plan for when it comes back? Electrify the car?

    No idea mate. If it's in the same condition as it left, then keep it? Or may break it depending on of the rims are still on it? I wouldn't mind a mk2 track car as a third option.

    So a week has passed since it was recovered by the Police, it was officially released yesterday @230pm, which didn't give me much time to arrange for it to be picked up! A £20 storage charge was going to go on top of the £150 for it to be released! But luckily upon our arrival, the guy knew I had been calling daily for it's release, he waved the overnight charge, so just £150 for release!

    On the recovery truck.



    Once parked up, it was close inspection time! The wheels are on there thankfully, and the Sony stereo wasn't touched neither. The driverside front wing and rear wheelarch/bumper has sustained some minor damage though. So apart from the carkeys, and ashtray full of change, it's come back as it pretty much left!

    Wing damage


    Rear wheel arch and bumper


    The Police have 2 suspects in custody, and have taken a personal statement of both me and my cousin for the burglary and twoc of the Golf, so looks like they will be charged!

    Yes, could have been worse! Not got car started yet, so unable to drive on ramp for inspection, as the steering column is locked due to no spare key!

    doh. you need to drill a 3mm hole into the casing and push a small length of welding wire into to release the barrel, then you can start it/release the steering lock with some long nose pliars/screw driver. or just fit a new barrel.... infact full lock sets on ebay can be had for like 30-40 quid.
    just need to know where to drill the hole.
    its a long time since i did it on a b3 passat, i remember removing the whole steering column to drill the hole in the right place as i couldnt get the column unit off due to the steering lock being on.....

    you'll have to google it!
