Oh man. Things just went downhill really fast with this car.
I must have left my truck unlocked and some crackhead clearly went down my street opening doors and got into my truck. The glove box and console were wide open, and I immediately noticed that all my quarters were gone but pennies were left. This is the crackhead MO in my town. I don't get too upset about the quarters, but then I realize when I look at the w108, I am 99% sure I left the grill star and pedestal in the console and it's gone. Son of a bitch!
As the night goes on and I research where to buy a grill star, I mellow out and hope maybe I left the grill star in the trunk or something.
Then I realize that I think I left the keys to the w108 in the truck. This would not be too big of a deal if there weren't three keys, only one of which worked the ignition key. That tells me that some locks were changed on this car. Which ones? I have no idea honestly. Hopefully the ignition was not changed, as I believe that the passenger door opened with the same key that worked the ignition. So maybe the only lock replacement was for the driver door (and trunk?)
I guess I will put up a flyer around to contact me if the keys are found. The thief has virtually no chance of finding the w108 since it is several miles from my home.
