very worrying .. not least because it means people are prepared to either ring-or steal the vans to break them..

 

 unless they were stolen by retards who assumed the vin numbers would not be recorded or have future bearing on a van later registered in the uk?

 

either way it is very worrying, having had a van stolen en route from europe we take a few precautions,- and have cctv etc at work.. but its only  as good as the images it captures.. seems like the thieves knew what they wanted.. and in those cases almost nothing will stop a theft.

which, makes today a bad day for all t3 owners . 

i hope the vans are recovered swiftly and the culprits treated without leniency ..

What a nightmare!

Could be Pikeys as they love their diesels...????

On a serious note I bought my Westy Joker from Graham at Middlesex
motorcaravans and he's one decent chap and definately doesn't deserve
this!

With a bit of luck the culprits wil be caught and punished, nothing short
of execution is good enough for them!

Maybe worth checking that these 2 vans don't appear at any future VW
shows although i reckon they may appear on ebay as thieves are usually a
bit dim and would be stupid enough to try and sell them this way!

Good luck in getting the vans back.

i doubt the thieves were dim-after all they took two of the things!
which would rule out opportunism, or someone targetting a van to  replace their rotten one ... (unless they were sat with the keys in -which i doubt)

excecution is a bit strong,but no one deserves to have their posessions taken by anyone without permission- uk scum of europe.. ??? we certainly lack the morals we like to think the nation posesses.

people pinch stuff because they either want the items for themselves,or they think they can make money by selling the items..

they may try and sell the vans as is 
change the identity to scrapped or rusty uk vans...
or break them for parts

each has a degree of detection attatched, although not a lot i am afraid if they decide to pull the vans apart


again hope it rectifies itself asap

Hope you get them back.
This is becoming the problem as the price of vans goes up. thieves are always on the look out.
My driveway is like a fortress!!! (cant be too careful.) I have a friend who parked his on the street and it disappeared overnight. Ba*stards!

 Maybe time to buy a huge steering lock...

keep my eye out, but would think stolen to order or will end up broken for spares through various outlets - worth remembering when you see "cherry" parts for sale.

Hi. Sorry 2 hear u got burnt. Lesson here is these vehicals are valuable and disposable. They've hit you once, so assume they'll be back. disabling the vehicle is a start but wont stop em. wheel clamps will slow them down alot. dogs make loads of noise ! Hope your insured.

Its not fair to assume who's responsible without evidence. I hope u you get them back & keep a watch out.

I Reckon stolen for parts personally, no one is that dumb to steel two them try to register them in this country, i would alert dover customs watch ASAP, And post the engine numbers on this site somewhere and hope the fu*kers get caught in 6 months time, and no one is going to steel two unless they have a shed to store and strip down, or from middlesex to dover in the same day. any info on the interior parts (unique markings, drill holes..etc) as we can all keep a watch to see what comes on on Ebay in the next couiple of months.

Might be an idea also when advertising on Ebay not to give the vans full address, as i think we all have seen these vans for sale on ebay over the past few weeks, And if someone is in the market for one Ebay will be the first place to look,

Did you have any viewings on the vans, as a potential buyer is also a potential thief,

thanks for your replies obviously the more people aware and looking out hopefully they may be found.For your info they were both immobilised  but obviously not well enough and in any case windows were broken to gain entry .Let this be a lesson for others if you think your motor is thief proof think again!!!!

you dont stand a chance of keeping your vans

when I had my mint 1992 stolen at 4 am

the shittheads lifted it up on a truck and vanished into the night

the alarm was going and it had a steering lock fitted

if they want it....they will take it...no matter what

your vans are probably on the continent or in bits already

its not just dover you have to look at.

they probably had a ticket for the ferry

with the numberplate on it before they nicked them

 

sorry to be so nagative......I really do hope you find them and you get them back. If not make the insurance pay the going rate for a westy and not for some tin pot van as mine tried too. 

new heart...new van...new man

Wankers! Good luck with the insurance claim is all I can say.......

Will keep my eyes open in the Worcester area, not too many about up this way so I would notice them.... Especially on German plates if they are dumb enough to leave them on

Has all the trademarks of a close to home job to me ie not opportunist to use copper dialogue. Nope, no chancing involved in this one. Well planned and executed it seems. Sadly chances are you`ve unknowingly met or seen or know of the inbreds who did the robbing. Might be more efficient pushing out a couple of k on the market in return for patellas and info - only hard cash will get results I`m afraid. Someone always talks for bucks, they won`t be being scared of the Sopranos. The pimps won`t like it that their handywork takes prominence in this forum either.

Hey, best of luck

Still bloody love my bloody van
