Stolen - Mk7 Golf GTD & Mk3 Scirocco - West Midlands

Post by dan95x » Thu Feb 26, 2015 1:09 pm

Morning all,

One of those horrible ones for me this morning I am afraid, just took a phone call from my dad to say that overnight someone broke into our house and took the keys to both his Golf and his partners Rocco, stealing both cars.

They were taken from Walsall, West Midlands

Mk7 Golf GTD in Dark Metallic Grey, totally standard with cloth interior - BU64 XMP
Mk3 Scirocco 2.0 Tdi in that mid-metallic blue they sold loads in, cloth interior, R badge on back, - AD59 NVP

No photos I am afraid, but they are both standard.

If people could keep their eyes out it would be much appreciated - PM me on here, or you can contact me on oh seven seven 38 26581 nine

Alternatively, I am assuming West Mids Police are the ones dealing with it, so obviously you could contact them! (I say assuming as I am away from home at the minute and cant head back just yet to get the full story)

They decided to leave my Mk1 Scirocco - shame as the bugger doesnt work at the minute, and would have slowed them down a bit at least!

Cheers
Dan

I am suspecting we arent going to be seeing these again unfortunately, but in the spirit of trying everything, I do have a couple of pics now:

Further to details above, I never thought to add, Golf is a 3 door

Cheers to everyone who is keeping an eye out/have spread the word etc

Interesting update - The scirocco has been found - Was actually found a week ago in Kingstanding, Birmingham, but the police decided to not tell us until today :blink:

No sign of keys, but the car is there.

With that in mind, as much as I had suspected we wouldn't be seeing either of them again, if anyone in Birmingham sort of area can still keep there eyes peeled for the golf, or are offered Mk7 GTD parts for suspiciously low prices etc, If they could give me a shout it would be much appreciated!

Cheers

Dan

glad to hear you have some good news buddy, hope fully you will get it back soon, did they damage it?
you never know you may get some good news about the golf. where there's one car the other should be somewhere near.
I would recommend getting something like this if and when you get the cars back

and

at least you will catch them in the act and also find the cars location and give both to the police to let them recover and detain the hoodlums.


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!
