I have already posted this on Tyresmoke.net so you may have read it any help appreciated guys. Cheers.

At ten past six last night I heard knock on my door, I was watching the Man Utd game and working on my laptop in on the Lounge dining table. I ignored the first knock but when the door knocked again I went to the front door and opened the door. Just as I turned the key in the door the figure who was standing about eight feet back from the door rushed the door and knocked me over at the moment three other males rushed into my hall shouting "We have got a gun, where are your car keys"

I was bundled to the floor by the four males and they picked me up and bundled me into the lounge still shouting "Where are your car keys, we have a gun" I was pushed onto the settee and a pillow was put over my face and was told not to look. They also at this point took the car keys, my wallet with my credit cards and 20 in cash and driving license. They also took my HP PDA, Motorola V3 and also my Samsung Mobile. Amazingly they never took my Omega Speedmaster that was next to my wallet and phone. The cheeky gits also took my laptop and the last guy out even came back to ask were the power adaptor was for the laptop. They made two errors though which have left vital DNA on the scene which I wont go into and the police reckon if they have previous they will get them. They also left a stolen escort running outside my house with more DNA on it.

The police were there withn fifteen minutes and stayed for three hours and CID and SOC were also on site within half an hour. My parents were also round within half an hour and six mates were round and my family and mats have been ace.

Today I still feel shook up, stayed at my parents last night and now just want to scrub my house from top to bottom as it feels dirty. I have lost my pride and joy but part of me cant care about that, it is insured with Gap insurance. At present I am more slightly intoxicated that my phone with all my numbers has gone and also my laptop has gone with all my work on there and e-mails.

The R32 is greatly admired by the wrong people and at the moment I dont think I want that car back or an R32 again. With my gap insurance I think I will get about four thousand back cash after I have paid off my finance. If you have an R32 be careful, mine was locked and is always parked behind gates at night, but the half an hour I left it on my drive before I put it away was enough for them to take it. Having a gun next to your temple has put my love of fast cars into perspective. Is it worth it seeing my mom, brother and best mate crying last night when they thought I could be shot is a sobering vision.

If you see a blue R32 reg DV 03 OMW PM me of call your local police. Cheers guys

Feel for you, Its one to thing to have your car stolen, though for you to be threatened in your own home with a gun for it.

I wonder if this would had still happened if you had a few friends round watching the footy with you ?

Hopefully the police will do their job on this one.

That is shocking, but as has been said not uncommon now! It really does make you think about having a nice car. We may as well just have some crappy rust bucket that no one will take the slightest bit of notice in!

Hope you don't mind but I have also put this on the Club GTI and Performance VW forums.

I can only imagine how terrifying that could be - I feel shaken up just reading your account, it could happen to anyone here or if we weren't in our wives or girlfriends. I hope you are OK in the long term and it doesn't put you off enjoying your life by driving performance cars - why should you suffer becuase of criminal assault ?

Glad your alright mate.

Even though I don't have an R and no-one would probably want my Go-Kart makes me thankful for my tracker [;)]

Hope you get things sorted and they get what they deserve!!

Cheers
