    Yes I was working on the car, turned back for less than 5 seconds and car was started, managed to open drivers door to extract the driver but he reversed out of private driveway on second attempt and knocked me down in the process.

    Not holding breath waiting for car to be found, I suspect it is in a 1000 parts by now, it is thought the car was probably stolen to order.
    I have lived at my current address for over 13 years and there have been no cars stolen from the estate in that time to the best of my knowledge.
    The driver was quite skillfull, I had a 3.5 Tonne LWB transit van blocking the driveway at the time and he still managed to get on to the road and seemed quite intent on making sure there was no damage caused to the vehicle.

    Dont suppose you noticed if it had blacked out windows and RS4 brakes did you?
    Also forgot to mention in first post, all S4 badging had been removed.

    Hi mate, first thing, were you ok / are you ok?

    Secondly, I'm really sorry about the theft mate, feel for you - I'm always looking on eBay and similar at stuff so for sure I will keep at eye out. It could be worth putting the Registration number on here incase anyone see's it - normally I wouldn't advise deliberately putting your reg online but in the circumstances I don't think it will cause you any harm!

    Best wishes and best of luck

    Chris

    Wow, really feel for you. Will keep my eyes peeled, you never know where it may end up if it's still in 1 piece.

    A lesson to us all I think.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks all for your comments and concern, I should be thankfull for only having minor head and whiplash type injuries, could have been a lot worse I suppose.

    Car last seen with V10 VRS registration, colour confirmed as Nogaro blue.

    I was going to say that earlier - it's only car car at the end of the day (not wishing to sound harsh) and your relatively unharmed! You can replace your car, you can't replace your life.

    Made statement to police at the hospital whilst waiting for treatment, he told me Audi's are the current most stolen car, for those that do not already have them I would definately recommend having a tracking device fitted.

    The chances are the car has a different number plate on it already, if its still the original car and not been broken down for parts..

    Sorry to hear about the car, sucks when it was such a new toy. Hope it all gets sorted.

    Insurance are going to take all details of theft/claim over the phone today, policy states no offer will be made until 42 days after theft of vehicle.

    Fingers crossed, I hope I get a compasionate loss adjuster.

    Had a work call out to do today near to the location of the vehicle storage depot, I was not able to contact them via phone but thought I would call in anyway, police phoned me whilst I was on my way there to tell me storage depot was not open at weekends and that they would need the car for a couple of days anyway before I can collect and they will phone me when they are done with the car.
    Was hoping to inspect car today just to give my imagination a break, still it now gives me time to get a decent camera for photos, plus all the documents and keys should be posted back to me by then.
