I was woken this morning by my neighbours knocking on the door to inform me that my Sportback was sat on the driveway with the driver's window smashed out. Further inspection showed that the doors hadn't been opened and the only thing which appeared to be missing was my TomTom Bluetooth GPS which had been stored in the driver's door pocket. I know the door hadn't been opened because all the glass fell out when I tried to, so all the thief has done is smash through the window (no brick inside so they came prepared) and reach down into the door pocket. I couldn't fathom this because the TomTom is tiny and was concealed from view (my car has a light grey interior and the TomTom is the same colour). Furthermore, my expensive Oakley sunglasses and a fair wedge of CDs were all untouched in the armrest/glovebox and my laptop was safe in the boot (won't be doing THAT anymore!). But after some consideration I think I have the answer as to why I was broken into when there wasn't anything valuable on show. My ower's manual is stored in the door pocket as per the guidance in the Audi manual. Peering through the passenger side window it can look like a small handbag is tucked in the door pocket. So, I suspect that the thief has broken in thinking they were getting a handbag, been disappointed but got the TomTom as a consolation prize. Still, they don't have the power cables for it and it's battery is currently flat so they'll get feck all for it. Anyway, the point of this post isn't to look for sympathy, it's to warn anybody who, like me, follows trivial instructions to the letter that although keeping your manual in the door pocket may seem reasonable it's actually a really dumb thing to do as it encourages the smash and grab scum.
