last night my house was broken into and my car was stolen[:(][}:)][:(](black 4 door gti) using the cars keys the only other items that were stolen where my girlfreinds purse and mobile phone which made me think that the car was stolen to order the police also belive this to be the case so ill prob never see the car again thankfully they didnt come up stairs as i also have an 18 month old son but the police say that they got what they came for (the car) the other stuff just happend to be at hand, anyway just a warning if your in the wigan area someone may be taking gti's to order so hide your keys well at night.

i described this method of "kreepers and keys" in another thread about viechle security for the golf.

its terrible when it happens as not only have they got away with possisions but they have invaded your privacy

very sorry to hear that this has happened

Really sorry about that, must be awful, the feeling of someone invading your property is worse than them actually taking the stuff. What have the insurance company said?

Me to Bad luck mate, I hope they catch the scum!

I always take the car keys to the bedroom at night, spares are in the safe!

Sorry to hear about that Tunes but this type of burglary is all too common these days. They know the car is difficult to steal without keys so will either rob you on the road or screw your house to find them. I was followed only the other night by a T reg Audi A4 but as I was aware of him we just drove round in circles until he must have realised I had sussed him out then he turned off never to be seen again.

Good idea to hide the keys but if someone does break in, a car is not worth risking your own or your families health for. There are some bad barstewards out there. I keep my keys close, next to my phase plasma rifle in a 40watt range. [:)]

Sorry to here that bud! You just gotta be grateful that they didnt try to harm you or your family & that your all ok! It sickens me when i hear of such things, what is this country coming to? Only a matter of time before we start getting vigilantes delivering some real justice!

A friend of my dads was robbed at knifepoint the other day by three guys! They eventually managed to get away in the new M3 as they had to ask the poor owner how to work the SMG gearbox - stupid biffs! Luckily after they left he was on the phone to navtrack & the police recovered it within the hour and caught one of the guys!

Words cant describe my hatred towards these scumbags!

Sorry to hear that fella.

My sister is always on about hiding keys and stuff like that, but to be honest, i'd rather leave them somewhere where a potential burlar doesn't have to wake me up and (violently) ask where they are.
