    Well my car was stolen to day from Hither Green SE13, no glass no nothing just gone so I recon it must have been lifted on to the back of a Truck.

    a lad "bloke" i know, his track, skyline was stolen, it went on every site i know of, 2 weeks later it turned up de-stickerd in a underground car park dumped,
    with only lock damage.

    hopefully making it aware stop the thief's selling bits on as its a hot car.
    as everyone knows it

    Absoultely gutted for you mate. Can't believe one of the benchmark cars from the audi forums has been taken. Really hope you get it back in one piece.

    Will keep a look out up here in Fife / Tayside and on the used car websites.

    ******* Scum!

    I feel for you, i was gutted enough having cars broken into in the past, never mind stolen!

    The fact its been lifted by a truck would suggest Pro's though, and its probably been done to order and shipped abroad or broken for parts.

    You probably aready know this but keep a very close eye on ebay and suchlike for any bespoke parts from it and inform the police if you do see any of them appear!

    This kinda thing is all to common on the LandRover forums i use, in their case though they're ludicrously easy to steal and worth thousands both as a whole (with new plates nailed on) or in parts!

    The only way to start the engine is with the key.

    If they were really organised they could have brung along another ECU and used that, but its likely they just lifted it with a HIAB or similar...

    This is why you see a huge increase in housebreaking linked car theft in recent years. They're virtually impossible to hotwire, so they just break in, grab the keys and jump in and drive it away

    there is a lot of this about at the moment, friend had rs4 stolen about a month back and one of the audi garages i do work for said in my area at least three they know of had gone an s3, a6 and a tt all high power stuff,all were nicked with keys after break ins, but it is easy to get hold of new key programmed with your code unfortunately.if you do want to guard against it cover up the chassis number on your windscreen with tape or something as they need this to get copy keys made

    really feel for you its not nice when it happens you keep looking out and expecting it to be there, will keep eyes peeled and pass on details

    picture the scene you work in a dealers in say spain and a bloke walks in hes lost the keys to his nice new audi and is stuck on holiday he has the chassis number and reg he also has a passport and drivers licence. so you order a new key and code it for him so the nice man can continue on his holiday. meanwhile he posts the key to his mate who comes round your house and drives off in your car. all you need is chassis number and reg and some false id(not hard for criminals to get), difficult in this country but not impossible but relatively straight forward in Europe.

    i also mentioned my mate who had his rs4 stolen. police reckon he was followed home from work in liverpool then broke into his house.really secure upvc back door. opened in less the 2 mins with blowtorch. they found his car in scotland by accident after a drugs bust after two months he got it back and it cost the insurance company 10k to put it right (wheels tyres bit of bodywork)

    yes its all scary but if you drive anything out of the ordinary then always look for suspicious people following you of showing an interest in your car. but personally if someone was that determined to get my car i would let them as a car can be replaced but if after you try to stop them you end up hurt it not worth it
