Our brand new black Audi A5 3.0 TDI Quattro Tiptronic EY58 LLJ was stolen from Albury, Hertfordshire some time between Wednesday 24 Sep and Monday 29 Sep. House was broken into & trashed & keys taken. We were on holiday.

Please excuse my ignorance but I have no idea how to add this to the 'Stolen Cars' thread.

Absolutely gutted.

Thanks

Sorry to hear about that.

Rubbish! Sorry to hear that. And it only looks like you've had a month. Hopefully the Ferrari is still safe.

Yep and we were away for 12 days of that month so had very little use of it at all.
I hope the lowlife scum responsible come to a very long slow painful and messy end to their pathetic miserable lives.
Complete & utter bds.

Sadly I doubt you will be getting it back. Sounds stolen to oreder otherwise they would have taken other cars too i would guess.

Unfortunately it'll probably be found with completely blacked out windows, driving round a local sink estate by "rude boys" selling crack to kids...

More likely a in a crate at Southampton waiting for a boat to Dubai...

What I don't understand is why the insurance companies don't provide extra funding to the cops / their own team of guys at the docks to open every single crate, all day every day. On TV recently they found about 7 cars in one day just by opening a few at random...but don't have the resources to be there every day. Its far too easy to get cars out of the country IMO.

Commiseration's to the OP frown

Thank you, my thoughts exactly, surely they take enough in premiums off you to be able to fund this. It really feels like they're totally not on your side, I've already had the insurance co. interrogation interview which made me feel like I was the criminal, not the victim!

No ability to search every crate - all ports have tracker and random searches.

OH had a conversation with an insurance company who refused the cost involved in allowing SOCO to go over the interior of the car that was stolen. They had vehicle back and the storage/repair bill was costing money so they stated that as they would only get a few pounds compensation back from the thief and that they did not want to be more out of pocket they had no interest in supporting a prosecution or wanting any further evidence gained.
