    That is shocking, I hope your car gets repaired quickly. It's a sad world we live in when people do things like this. Will keep an eye out.

    I feel for you buddie. On a side note the c@nts that done this must be really good at what they do. To strip the car seats and steering wheel out in the middle of your street and not get caught.

    not with smashed glass all over the place.. you'd think somebody nearby would have heard or saw something! - jeeeebers, what kind of Neighbours wouldn't knock your door or call the Police even after the event? That's B*11*cks ...maybe the thieves will come back for their cars at a later date.

    P.S: I'm amazed they got the seats out of the windows - that must have been a tricky proposition.

    Just looking through your other posts & noticed you had your seat\s changed by the local dealer? have you done a key count recently?

    i've had cars in bits before on a carpark, no one looks (we even had the police stop and ask us when we had a car apart in a multistory carpark! all they asked was if the owner was there and not to leave a mess), i don't know any of my neighbours, no one would see the glass at night....

    I'm not sure the seats would fit through a window of an A3\S3\RS3! If that's the case, a key would be needed to open the doors, then you'd break the glass to cover your tracks. Also, assuming the seats are electrically operated - can you get to all bolts without moving the seat back\forth? Plus how difficult would it be to to access seat bolts from within the confines of the car? ...and you might even break the computer stalk in an attempt to prevent a key count being done.

    ...sorry, just thinking out loud.

    Bloody tramps , you can't own nothing nice nomore, the seats etc could be going into a s3 rs3 lookalike so keep your eye open,

    As for opening this kind of lock a pick can be bought off the net for 15£ and it doesn't take alot of practice to open

    Does seem strange that the person climbed in through the window then passed everything out through the window , Is it actually possible to unbolt the seats in such a small space?

    If a key was used and they smashed the window to cover their tracks I'm sure the alarm brain log can be read to see if the alarm was deactivated at any point so it's worth getting it read maybe insurance company will do this anyway, I must say I'm shocked that the rs3 has no movement sensors inside!! I think I'm gonna upgrade mine ASAP!!!!

    All the best

    My rs3 has officially just gained the status of "return to base drone".. - I'm never gonna leave it anywhere except my alarmed garage, where one of my staffs sleeps! I know there's always been car thieves, but all this recent stealing of Audi parts is a nightmare.. Genuinely surprised the alarm didn't go off too, poor show Audi - £40k car and frankly a sh1te alarm system.

    i expect they have broken the window, the alarm has gone off, then they have disabled the alarm and hid till it stopped, only the owner would bother going out to investigate

    Feel gutted for you,can't imagine how I would feel.

    I used to live in SE12 until 1974..wouldn't go back there if you offered me a free RS3.

    As others say.complete scumbags of the lowest order. Karma will repay them,maybe wrapped around a lampost.

    If my A3 and our 2010 A3 has interior sensors then I'm sure the RS3 does to. You with have a button on the end edge of the drivers door to turn them off. Also nobody said the alarm didn't go off! These thieves are professional, and with the way society is today nobody wants to get involved in other peoples business with regard to the neighbours...

    Shame these things happen though.

    STOLEN RS3 INTEROIR - Please Read

    Thats terrible, so sorry to see this!

    I've said this before and sorry if it offends but until people stop trying to make their cars look like something their not this will continue to happen!

    It's sickening to think that these parts will probably fetch £500 ish so someone can turn their 10 year old 1.9 Tdi into an RS3 lookalike.

    Hi guys , I saw this video on you tube , all I can say is I'm glad I don't own a BMW anymore And if i did I'd kick their arse,

    shocking stuff , they pop the window but only put their arm in so alarm doesnt sound and plug an edi lock machine into the obd2 port and program a blank fob key up for the car in seconds then turn off the alarm and start car gone!!!!!

    Im sure there Is an edi lock for Audi too think im gonna secure mine somehow ,

    Aparantly certain laws apply to having the obd2 port easily accessible which leaves it open to this breach by thieves

    Well Gents - its been a while so though I would update you all on things. My RS3 ownership days are over unfortunately. The repair bill was £22k at the outset plus whatever additional work that wouldn't be known (electric gremlins and the like) until they had started fixing everything. The insurance company took one look and admitted defeat opting for total loss instead.

    The car has already been sold at salvage so I would expect it to appear in few months in the classifieds. My 7 months of ownership have been great - 5k miles and a lot of smiles. Only slightly annoying thing was that the engine was now really loosening up and when driven with Sport On / Traction Fully Off / Manual Shifting combo the car was an animal.

    Enjoy all and will see y'all for the 8v RS3 whenever that appears!

    wouldn't the reg number be written off with the car, or is that for un-repairable cars only?

    Sorry to hear this Mr Smile. Good luck on your next venture.

    People who do this want their knackers chopping off and force fed to them.
