Glad car seems to be ok then and hope you get it back soon.

Re: Stolen yesterday

I would suggest they've not used your keyless in this case (relay theft) instead they have smashed window, leant in to plug a box which is all to easy to purchase into your ODB port and this enables them to start car and drive off within a few seconds I'm sorry to hear this, I urge everyone that has...
