    Default Don't you worry about vandalism?

    I only joined yesterday after finding this forum whilst searching for any information on my newly purchased Vectra and I am well impressed with some of modifications I have seen. I am sorely tempted when I see how fabulous they look but, to be honest, after having two cars seriously keyed (beautiful sparkly red Nissan Almera and Nissan Primera) I am scared to bits about being targeted again.

    The Vectra is parked on a driveway but the damage to my other cars occured on a car park and outside of work.

    I don't know what makes these *******s target someones car but I fear modifications promote jealousy and spite and I would want to wrap "Victoria" up in cotton wool if she looked like some of the cars on here.

    Anybody else been targeted?

    I am lucky as I have a space by my office window so I can keep an eye on it.

    My old job I had to park in a car park and use to park in the far corner. Unfortunately if working late in winter I would come out to find a group of teenagers hanging around it drinking and smoking. Only once have I had a car keyed.

    I have had people bump my car in car parks and had my van keyed across the full bonnet and headlight when it was a week old and there's nothing you can do to prevent it. There is always a possibility of some low life messing with your car wether it had mods or is standard.

    First of all to the site mate!

    Yep, some right jealous idiots out there, and soem right careless one's.

    I remember when my dad got his facelift SRI CDTI about 2 years ago, within a week, someone put a key to it completely ruined the rear quarter, and when I bought my old Vec-B about 1.5 years ago, the first day I got it I parked it one the back streets at work and when I got back to it, someone had grazed the rear bumper. THE FIRST DAY TOO.

    You got any pictures of your motor mate? Would love to see it?

    Oh, and you will find this to be one of the best forums on the web, some great people here to and some very eagle eye'd Admin Staff who are totally on the ball in what they do.

    Enjoy mate!


    Bye bye Vec B
    - Hello Siggy!
