they tried to take mine on friday night in castleknock
broke drivers side window,ripped off the cowling around the steering and broke indicator stalk.
no wires cut or any more damage.
they must have been disturbed as they left some tools of the trade in it.e
took the battery out till the window is fixed today,.
its amazing when something like this happens and you dont sleep as good at night wondering when they will come back.

sorry to hear that they got yours mivecmad.
lad in the local car wash told me they took his and burnt it out in blanch a month ago.

Id say at this stage keep an eye out for people selling an fto engine or gearbox.
Could well have been just very well burnt out but also likely it found its way after a good joyriding to a non legit breakers yard / dismantlers.

That's a disgrace. With speedy detective work like that, it's no wonder I never heard about my 318 after it was lifted from the driveway a couple of years ago.
