    Hahaha, I’m with you on that one :yes:

    Glad you’re ok @Keef and the scumbags didn’t get your motor, it’s a joke they think they can just take what we work so hard for! Unfortunately I’m the type of person to go down fighting before they could take mine but probably end up injured or worse!!

    Quite, but they can have mine, hopefully I will not get it back and then my GAP insurance will get me a facelift version.
    I would never advise anyone to fight back, if you've your partner or children with you then more than likely they'll come after them to force you to hand over the keys. It's only a car, not worth it...

    Yes totally agree @cuke2u instincts would be to resist but you’re better off just handing over the keys!

    Programme on last night about car theft and the new keyless technology and to revert back to steering wheel locks etc and the use of the signal blocking wallets for keys, I already have that and my keys are placed in that when inside.

    Saying that are we better off not hiding keys etc as if they want it they’ll just break in and cause more damage?!

    I have a friend with an S6 who just leaves keys in plane site so they don’t cause more damage or potential injury to occupants if they were to try steal his car.

    Right you are, I've been giving it a thought, sure! ;-)

    FYI, I drive the ONLY S4 in Portugal. Had to buy it directly from Audi AG.

    So not many know what it is in reality.

    What a scary world we live in.

    Another update:-
    Car was in for first inspection service on Friday, 2 years old and on 15k miles.
    No real problems to speak of, passengers side front window had stopped working, thought it might be related to having the glass replaced, but turns out
    it was just a software thing, that needed recoding!

    No mention of any updates or recalls, I asked them to double-check but nothing apparently.

    Tires seem to be holding up, still got 4mm all round, so good for a few k miles yet.
    Must say after hating the conti's on my last few cars, the SC6 are a vast improvement, not noticed the dreaded tram lining.

    Just a quick update on my incident back in October, Police made 3 arrests and have charged them with at least 50 car jackings, last i heard they had pleady guilty to the majority of the charges - haven't heard anymore since so not sure about my case.

    Thats it for now.

    At the stealers for fixed oil service today, didn’t do it when the inspection was due back in May as they wanted too much money and didn’t have time to get a quote to price match!

    First off, no issue with price matching the local indy, £145 - no parts listed, just statement that genuine parts would be used.

    In the 2 months, 2k mikes since my inspection service, tires are now down to 2mm so will get some new rubber the weekend, not at Audi prices as they quoted £270 each. Was Tempted by PS4s but staying with conti SC6 as I’ve had no issues and they’ve done me for 17k miles. As i said before much better imo than previous gen SC3,4&5s

    Was also told, no recalls or updates but my passenger side rear shock is leaking, but don’t worry we’ll replace under warranty!
    I questioned if the pair needed to be replaced.
    The answer I got!
    Whilst we would usually recommend that, the warranty will only cover the leaking shock, so should be ok changing one side !?

    I’ve asked for written confirmation of this in case of future issues as a result.
