Gutted for you mate.
What, when, where ???
My FANTASTIC mint T6 Mojave beige STOLEN on Monday 21 st March from my own drive way in the middle of the day !
I hope the pair of scroats that stole it die of a slow & painful death !!!! hopefully there is enough CCTV footage of them to put them away!
The picture was taken the day I took delivery of it just before Christmas the first new vehicle I have owned, the photo is the only one I have of the rear of the van showing the solid tailgate with spoiler.
It had just covered 1900 miles and was a super vehicle, all I expected and more !
Any sightings of the van since the time it was stolen would be welcome, not your regular colour for a van so it may have caught someones eye ?
Another really galling issue is that I had a pair of red leather classic MG seats stored in the back of the van that I had just had refaced in Red leather ready to fit in my car !
I wonder if they will turn up ?? unique and finished to my design so I will recognise them when if I see them ! but I guess the scum will have thrown them in a ditch somewhere !
But someone may come across them dumped somewhere ? if so please let me know !
Thanks for the reply, sorry in my haste to list the photo I forgot the text ! someone suggested today at work that I should post it on your forum, you never know eh ?
I have since posted details of the theft on a reply , new game for me these forums !
Mate I'm absolutely gutted for you, will keep an eye out hopefully you'll get it back soon.
Where (in the country) was it taken from and did they break in and steal the keys from the house?
Sorry to hear that mate, hope they find it and the seats.
Really really disappointed for you. Security is such a problem. Did they get your keys?
Everyone's worse nightmare. sorry to here this, feel ya pain mate
Gutted for ya..
Seems like we're doing Summer Night from Grease:
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far (without a car)
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car (apperently now he has, that b*****d)
My appologies, but tell us more
@Nigel Eaton had his van stolen off his drive in the area of Milton Foremark, near Burton-upon-Trent . We are all interested to know if it was by stealing the keys from his house or by some other means . Please let us know Nigel, especially as it is possible for criminals to purchase specialist lock-picking tools from Amazon to which Ford Transits are especially vulnerable and many trades have lost their tools as a result .
This is aweful! Hope they get caught!
Just put it on stolen VW register Facebook page too!
Can/does the forum tweet this news for wider audience?? Every little helps?.
But firstly, i think we all feel for you.
We do all feel the poor mans pain, but are equally worried to know how it was stolen. If the house was broken into to get the keys thats bad enough but if they have a means to nick the vans without keys then we all have cause to worry.
Yes, I agree, that's why I asked the question
I had a pug about 20 years ago that had a key pad in the dash, and you had to enter a 4 digit number, as well as have the key. I don't know how secure it was, but it always seemed like a good idea to me. Not sure why it did not catch on.
