I think people are taking the mick now, just had a private call, someome saying they've seen the car in an MOT garage.

Asked who they were and how they know, they just put the phone down


Went to have a look but nothing.....

Twice this has happened now, a similar b@llshit before a week ago.

What a joke.

Obviously it's been said but just keep scanning the classifieds...those rare parts will be easy to spot.. Also search Europe wide on eBay etc in case they use proxy addresses

Sorry to here about this, we have a thief problem in Auckland NZ as well. Mostly to order I think but a lot of random stuff as well, if you've got something nice, don't leave it at the mall.
My flatmate is paranoid about his S13 and my R33 getting pinched out of the garage... got the door bolted both sides.

Nigel, is there anyway that the phone company can give you the number that called you, may give you a lead? Even if the number was withheld i'm sure they would help considering the circumstances?

Nate

Sorry to say this but it's probably broken down to parts and shipped out of this country by now. Either that or it's in a lock up somewhere. People who steel this sort of car either steel it to joy ride/use as a get away car for other crime, in which case it probably would have surfaced by now or it's organised. Therefore they know exactly what they were after and just how scarce they are so its unlikely they would be foolish enough to attempt to move it on in the UK. I also don't think that they would be likely to contact you to try and throw you off the sent seeing as there absolutely no amonimity on the net and public access machines are usually very hard to access without being captured by many CCTV cameras etc.

I haven't read the whole thread yet, did you say you had it insured? You have plenty of pictures so should be able to put together a parts list etc....

I do feel for you though mate. What a crap thing to happen.

What a joke.
A couple of days after my GTR was taken a guy called me and told me he knew where it was and asked if there was a reward - I told him to piss off. He then called me back and asked me for the number of the other guy on my thread who I'd got in touch with after he said he'd had the same done to him.

Bearing that in mind, I think it's fair to say that the people stealing these cars are on this forum and are reading everything that is posted after each theft. That's why I didn't say too much on here when they took mine.

Nigel, did you tell the police about these 2 calls?

Gone but not forgotten.


I'm looking forward, and I'm maintaining a positive attitude and will buy another one 100% .

Insurance are being funny, their initial offer pending the police report completion was a complete and utter joke.

Don't let them mess you about, when my car was written off in the accident I got all the usual "I've seen cars for X, Y, Z with the same parts" etc from the engineer / examiner! Which was utter BS! As soon as I mentioned the fact I had an agreed value policy, and like for like replacement on ALL my parts I got a cheque for the full amount within a week or so. Not that I could do much with it from hospital!

It pisses me off no end, you insure a car for say, 20,000. You get charged a 1000 premium based on your information, and the cars value. Why should the insurance then say "well, actually we can get one of those for 15,000" if anything happens? That's great, so why charge 1000 to insure a car declared at 20k? How about customers say "well, I'm only going to pay you 500 for insurance, as you won't pay me the full amount in the event of a claim any way". They'd laugh at you!

Grrr... Must be the cold & flu tablets + beer...! /rant over.

Really hope you get you car back Nigel, or if not, you get the full value of what it is worth!

They are such unfair bast@rds.

I have sent them all the folders of receipts and invoices. I will take it further with them. The price of the car was 28K when insured, and they also had all the relevant modification info etc.
