Nothing worse than knowing someone was trying to steal your pride and joy,good alarm and high visiblity steering lock like autolock is always a first on any older vauxhall i own usually scares away most of the sh*t heads that would just rob it for the sake but more determin thieft may come back if its sough after car

Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

No mate, the footage was from our doorbell that captured him. It goes via Ring website.

Central locking was on and I fitted the Vauxhall remote alarm last year. We have a gate on now which helps, it will be garaged once it's back from the rear arches repair.

Sorry to hear about some scumbag trying to take your pride and joy pleased they weren't successful its getting to be a worry leaving the car in daylight because they are getting a lot more interest now they are becoming so rare I've upgrade my security and the previous owner has spent grand on car security not many of us DTM owners left
