I was sorta thinking this may be the case; have you lost enthusiasm for the car now, or do you think you will be able to get over it?

I suppose its like having you're house broken into tbh, the feeling that someone else has been in you're personal space etc...

How was it taken?

Thought new cars where imposible to take without the key think

Feel for you though, nice as it is for the culprits to be caught, and get your car back, its always a wonder what damage they could have done frown

Glad to here your getting it back,
mystery to how its been taken..

Would your insurance put any of the damage right?
Or is it a case of a Stupid Excess...

Just goes to show, never give up..

Mixed bag for you i suppose?
