it is with a heavy heart, and with much pain that I have to post on here that my pride and joy was stolen from me on Saturday morning 30th April this week. My wife and I were asleep upstairs, they broke into the house, took the keys, opened the garage and drove off. The car was stolen from Huddersfield, by Asians from the Bradford area. It was last seen in Shipley, then later in the Frizinghall \ Manningham area on the same day. I didn't have the time or the heart to face the replies from the members at the time it happened and left it on social media i.e Facebook to get the message out. So many of you already know. Suffice to say, the house is getting upgraded to Fort Knox as we speak. I had just spent thousands on the car recently too with a full respray at VW, new bumpers, etc and new brake lines and hard lines, new sports cats, and other maintenance work. It was getting prepped potentially for F.I, but that is not going to happen anymore, Anyway, I'm hoping I will get paid out by the insurance company and that Chris Knott forum sponsor comes through for me. All the mods were declared. Some distinguishing marks: If you see anyone selling JL Audio Amps, JL Audio mini box sub, Kill Bill replica Sword, or Dell and Asus Laptops, KW Suspension, or any of the mods listed below in my sig, give us a heads up. The car itself has new paintwork. However it was due to go back to VW for final finish due to orange peel down the sides and some buffer marks. It has new Milltek Jet Tips. It has a full milltek except the cats which are Lucifer brand as they were replaced only a few weeks ago, so look for shiny cats and old system. Undertray is missing as its in my garage. Engine has a red corrugated tubing on some pipes. The vacuum plunger on inlet manifold has a brass T connector and blue with black vac tubing. It has a Neuspeed strut brace. Drilled air box with ITG panel filter. Fluidampr Crank pulley V3 Coilovers Avon ice Winter Tyres Brake master cylinder is brand new Front bumper hasn't been correctly lined up with the headlight edges after painting. Bosch Silver Battery No wear on seats except driver side upper bolster. Passenger front arch liner is broken.

Saw a few posts on Instagram, you must be devastated especially it being your new house but al least you're both okay. Hope they catch whoever did this.

Sorry to hear this mate.

You question what else you can do if your car is locked away in a garage.

I can't see why you won't get paid out by insurance. Make sure you update everyone on your progress with them.

Sorry to hear this mate.

Yeah I guess you're right and I do always take my keys upstairs.... unfortunately though without worrying anyone I used to work with someone in Manchester who had their house broken into for their Civic Type R. The keys were upstairs so they went upstairs with a knife and told the owner to hand them over while laying next to his 4 month pregnant wife.

I guess you just have to be as safe as you can be and hope that puts off the majority of the scum on this earth.

Figured this was yours fella, devastated for you mate i know i'd be out for blood.

As MIQ says lets hope Karma sorts this out.

Im so sorry to hear this mate. Devestating news. I hope it comes hack in one piece but i also know how these things generally turn out. Never take keys to bed. The ibject of such a burglary is for a vehicle from the outset, so they will keep going until they find the keys. Makes absolutely no difference on sentancing unless its aggravated by use of a weapon

Saw this on FB, very sorry to hear this James.

As mentioned, the main thing is no one was hurt and all being good the car (and declared mods) will be replaced.

Being ex PC. It would be interesting to see who's behind this? It appears they've done this more than once? Only a matter of time they will be apprehended!

Thanks for your comments guys. It's a crushing end unless they find it. But I'll focus on the joy I had in it and the fun on this forum rather than how it went.
