    :wtf: You can say that again !

    Bit of an unusual deliberate act ? unless they were trying to get into the car without breaking the glass and ran off when it did break ?

    I had the same happen to me, went in at lunch time with the car intact, came out after lunch and the back window had imploded and shattered like yours. My car was on a manor house private estate parked next to a brand new ff under video surveillance, no one touched it, it just imploded of its own accord! Window fitter said something about a pressure lock but I can't remember exactly, I just remember it raining and me being pissed off.

    I've heard of windows shattering on their own before from temperature changes. Hope you get it sorted soon.

    This has been known to happen on its own, so not necessarily someone else that has done this.

    It has been known to happen. Cars have venting points when doors are closed, situated behind the rear lights to relieve cabin pressure. It's a pretty big deal, I was talking to an engineer at work whos involved in this on a range rover, he was stressing the importance of making sure vents aren't blocked.
