I've heard a few stories about Anni's and R32's which are stolen just for the interior/kit, the cars were later found completely stripped out!

It's all because an early MK4 can be picked up for so cheap now.......

Im seriously suprised they never took the whole car, either way its bad
to hear and something that you don't want to happen to anyone.

Bloody hell[:O] They go to the bother of taking the heated seat switches, pedals and mats / boot liner and leave the steering wheel, gear knob and alloy trim[:^)][*-)][:cool:]????? At least the guy still has his car, and as said earlier, his insurance will get it all replaced good as new.

Theiving barstewards don't need to beat immobilisiers to strip a
car. Plus bits are harder to trace. Everyone notices cars
like that so they are more likely to get caught.

Girl at work had her bloke's 3 door GTi all stripped out for all the leathers. They took the whole lot overnight from her driveway! (Standard alarm/immob)

Her insurance company told her 6 other leather GTi's had been "done" locally (Maidenhead)

Her's has been written off. VW quoted 5.5k to replace the whole interior and therefore a finacial write-off for her 51 plater...

Like someone said....Think it's an easy crime, everyone always wants leathers and easy to sell on!

Makes me feel quite nervous about my 3 door too....

Damn! thats quite close to home as well, will keep an eye out, good
thing mine has stnd factory cloths and even if someone did take them it
would give me a good exuse to go and buy some Leathers/bucket seats and
a guard dog [:p] (not that getting them pinched in the 1st place is bad
enough)
