Awesome, I hope it is good news in that the car is in good condition when you get it back.

Also, hopefully the fact that the police have recovered it suggests that they may have some leads on who did this, or even managed to catch them. Please let us know how this turns out.

Just seen this posted on twitter as to how these sophisticated thefts can be done.

New: meet the guy selling tech to steal luxury cars in seconds

Interviewed someone who sells keyless repeaters which can break into a wide range of vehicles.

Thanks for sharing. I wouldn’t be surprised if these are shared amongst different gangs . It’s so easy . Unbelievable.

Glad they found your car,
Said this before on here. But the best way to stop this is to get a ghost Immobiliser fitted and deactivate keyless entry.

As you say, clever kit. And it's gained a lot of friends.
I have to ask; will/might it affect warranty claims if there is a vehicle electrical problem?
It's not Thatcham Approved and I can't find VCA Approval (e-mark) or are there exemptions? I may have missed them somewhere.
