Theft!!

Hi Guys!

I was looking forward to introducing myself along with my gorgeous blue SLK, when we were burgled, our keys stolen and both cars gone. I had only had it 6 weeks, so you can imagine how devastated I was!

Anyway, the CSI man suggested we scout locally for it and later a policeman suggested a particular area. We borrowed a car, and armed with A to Z scouted the area and, after a five hour search, we found it!

It has been in police custody for 5 days now, I don't know what condition it's in, apart from seeing how my beautiful wheels had been damaged.

Anyway, just wanted a bit of a rant. That car was my absolute pride and joy, and the first ever car I have consciously chosen, even down to which wheels I had.

Very upset..

Thanks guys

Hubby spoke to the police again today, and due to a spate of thefts here in Liverpool, they have a huge back log. Great! Not.

So I suppose I'll just have to wait and see. Not a great start to being an SLK owner!

Sorry about your mishap, and welcome to the forum.
BTW, it may be a good idea to click 'User CP' on the toolbar above and complete your profile with location and car mod...
