Joanne got a letter from the police delivered to her mums address earlier this week - her mum opened it straight away because she thought something big had happened but it hadn't :laugh:

It was saying that Grampian Police are sending letters to everyone owning a corsa B and C (never mentioned the D) basically saying to be careful as they are now the most commonly broken into/stolen car in the Grampian area.

Basically gave you tips to reduce chances such as removing cd player faces when car is not in use etc.

Just thought i'd mention it incase its not just up here. Was impressed to see the police doing something like this though :)

Personally I think that the use of a furry exocet missile with exceptionally big teeth, sitting on the back seat, works a treat - and it's legal!

Doberman, Alsatian, Rotweiller etc all of them are wonderful deterrants...

That is a class idea! I'd wanna see their faces :laugh: Has anyone had problems with people snapping the base of the mirror off the car? Some idiot has been doing that to me when i park up near my mate's house. I have to clip the mirror base back on. :mad: Annoying.

Been happening alot here lately - we're lucky because our car is parked in flat car park but the ones who park their cars on the street get alot of damage. The chav's just seem to walk up and punch them off. I'm in a good area of Aberdeen aswell but seems to be happening everywhere. Last week and Audi A3, Impreza, new Astra and various other cars had mirrors punched off around Aberdeen. Been in paper alot recently.

Yer used to happen alot here (mirrors getting kicked off) but everyone just tucks there mirrors in now, thing is a snap off steering wheel is good but most of the time they break in just to pinch the cd player not the car.

Is there a hole behind the mirror that can be used to gain entry?

Like to see them steal a Corsa C! two clicks on the remote activates the dead locks (doors won't open from the inside or out!) and also the key is needed to start the engine!

Mind you if they had one of them trucks the police use for illegally parked cars then off they go! (I think you might hear that though?)

:laugh:
