B8 S4 Gone

Had my 2011 B8 S4 taken off the drive yesterday. the little loves broke in the house to find the key. Thanking God Her indoors was visiting her moms at the time!? Now for all the insurance bull to deal with....

b*stards!! No censorship necessary!

Having been a victim of these scums of the earth, I can imagine how you feel right now.

Hope you get a swift and satisfactory result to your loss.

Police are telling me there is a dormant tracker on the car.Not mentioned by Audi Dealer when  I bought it. vodafone (formerly cobra) want 485 to try & activate it.Do you really want it back?

That sounds very like extortion.

The cops should be able to force them to help.
Surely they are obstructing the law otherwise?
S4 boy

Have got local plod talking direct to them now but money makes the world go around...shite times right now

This is just shocking
I hate to think that scum like this are allowed to draw breath.....

Gutted for you mate and I hope you are brassed up properly after.

Tracker companies take the f'in piss.
The coppers should have the right to demand the whereabouts.

Thats like the company committing an offence for 'hiding' a stolen vehicle.

Not good to read this at all. I like to think the S4 flys under the radar of most.

Fingers crossed for a perfect recovery or simple and appropriate insurance settlement.

Re the tracker, the companies is provide a service for a price. Seems like a conventional operation to me.

It would indeed set an impossible precedent to have the police do this.
I was more on about the 'try & activate it' .

You pay 485 quid and find that the battery has run out.

BUT

the insurance co should be interested.
S4 boy

Luckily im thinking if it is gone then i have had a flippin superb year of howling fun,scared a few of the(well hard) lads to death & mabe have the oppertunity to upgrade....
S4 boy

With ref to tracker.they have now said they will try to activate it  without payment but if successful would require full payment to release data.am letting plod try to negotiate as im not overly keen to get it back as it was apparently spotted being driven erratically...
PMJ

I would have though the insurance company would cover the activation cost as it would be in their own interest to have the car found rather than pay out in full for a replacement, although I am sure they would ask you to take it with trousers down when the low ball you with an offer..

I don't care whether it's conventional or not, it's wrong simples !!!
S4 boy

Luckily if i do get to the lowballl offer stage.......mr gap insurance will have to take the hit

Sorry to hear your news.

Stupid question - how do the police know there is a dormant tracker on the car if you don't know about it and they don't have the car to inspect.....
pjbRs

That's bad news mate, thankfully it is insured and can be replaced, I agree about not wanting it back.

If they're professional thieves they'll know how to deactivate the tracker anyway.

Hope you get a good result ether way.


Not related but scum in a stolen RS5
