I think it's shocking, when I first joined you hardly ever saw people talking about it on here. Now, every time I visit someone reports an attempt.Barney McGrew wrote: ↑Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:53 amI don't know why people think it's shocking.
Car theft isn't new. Go on any car forum for any decent/performance car and they are full of threads like these. Nice cars have always attracted thieves. I don't wish it on anyone and sorry to hear about this incident, but people seem a bit naive to this fact and don't take any precautions regarding security, even when they've been on forums like this and seen all the posts about thefts and security devices etc.
It's just something we unfortunately have to accept I'm afraid, so get some decent security and something as a visual deterrent.
It isn't new but it was generally seen that these cars aren't as desirable to thieves as a Golf R, Audi S3, etc. and I think that's made people complacent.
I dread to think what insurance renewals will be like, people are already seeing huge increases.
