    mate of mine recently had his house done over, and they stole his mates subaru and the keys to his vectra along with the TV and usual bits.

    The house insurance said they wouldnt pay for the keys to the vectra, he'd have to claim off the car insurance, his excess was more than it cost to change the locks etc and he didnt want to hurt his NCB so he never bothered claiming. Never did change the locks (he had a spare key) and sold the car in the end.

    **** mate, just seen this thread. I hope your insurers cough and I hope that the scrunts who took it get a good thrashing, and put away.

    My only experience of car crime so far was when some juvenile scally toerags threw a rock through the window of my Saab 9000 and took my satnav. Pretty small compared to what you're going through, but I know how that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach feels.

    Very, very best of luck mate.

    well, you probably don;t want to hear it but....could have been a lot...lot worse.
    remember Docurley's car?

    still not nice. get grizz on the case, he must have enough parts lying around to fix that the amount of cars that go through there!
    hope your dogs turn up

    im guessing the front panels are the same across the range, if so i know a few scrap yards with some in

    headlights i have, or we can salvage brackets off mine

    i have a standard prefacelift bumper to that will get you back on the road

    do s4s share the radiators with anything else? anyone know?

    So sorry mate. No word from the police? There wasn't another vehicle involved? Is does look like it had an argument with a tree or lamp post.
    I'm often on the SPCA site though it's unlikely the dogs will turn up there, I'll keep an eye out.

    Oh my god the Wnakers, I feel you pain my man.

    Anyways I have a front panel with a rad on it if it's any good to you, not sure if the S4 and 1.8t are the same size but I think the slam panel is.

    GOOD NEWS!!

    I attended a police raid in chorley today , and the puppies were in the house . They are now back safe but skinny with us being fed as i write this . Thank you for all your help hopefully this will lead to finding the thieves and the rest of the stuff.

    Ive been trying to get the car transported to unit 20 as there having problems with theirs soon as that happens we can get to the main damage .

    As for the other car because of todays events i never got time to get the locks etc but hopefully get them tmrw.

    I am so chuffed for you mate, i cannot describe. Its nice the Police have actually come through for you. I like it that you were there at the raid to rescue your babies.

    I hope the car will live agin, you have come too far now for her to be scrapped etc. Like i said i have a front mount S4 fan here you can have for free if you need it.

    Thats pretty damn impressive news tbh, If it had happened to me i'd never have expected to see the car or dogs again!

    Presumably the theives were known to the police or something?

    We put a lot of effort in to find the puppies , but i was still impressed with the 2 police forces working together. Along with the newspaper articles . I really couldnt believe it when i saw them on the kitchen floor.

    Car is now on way to unit 20 , picked up about 30 mins ago
