    Default Bumper Stolen

    Got up this morning to go to work.

    Sat in the car and looked across at our other car Astra Coupe Turbo,

    where the f***ks the front bumper gone!!

    everything gone, fogs the lot. So far no signs of any damage, but the Police have told me not to touch it until SOCA arrive!

    Looks like they have even unplugged the fog lights!!

    well peed off, £400 excess, (change that in april come renewal). well cheesed off!

    SH17. Sorry to hear that mate. I think if I was you I would take the day off work and mooch around local body shops and garages to see if there are any Astra coupes under repair. Don't say nothing to anybody, just walk into the workshops and have a look. Hope you get some justice of some description.

    Gutted for you PTE.. Why can't people just leave others cars alone..

    Like Gary said.. It seems stolen to order.. Check out E-bay as well.. One little sh#t down here is doing time for exactly that offence..Pinched bits and sold them as spares on fleabay..

    As for SOCO..You may get results but in my experience it won't amount to much..( lost a transit and a pickup..recovered but no action taken after SOCO.)

    Once again..Gutted mate..

    The thing is, we all know there are unscrupulous garages out there . An insurance company pays out for the garage to do the job and what better way to make a profit than instead of buying a new bumper for the customers car (I dunno, £400/£500 quid for an Astra Coupe bumper etc), they go and nick one. Nick one the same colour and you don't have to buy paint or spray it either, more savings and more profit.

    I purposely moved to a house with a drive as I'm a bit paranoid like that. I've fitted infra red Flood Lights out the front and back of the house to.
