    Some scrote has stolen the badge of the front of my car, and not only that they have tried to prise the grill off and made big screwdriver holes in the bumper and grill. So whilst they have gone home with a badge you can get of eBay for £18, they have left me needing a new bumper, grill, badge and respray, probably about £1k's worth of repairs.

    Fucking c***s

    Feel for you! Jealous bastars that's all. It's the reason I spend a few hundred quid on a car and run it into the ground the repeat after 12-18 months. No fucker wants my Passat badge. And if they do, they're welcome to it! It's either little scroats and a few in your street will have been done or it's somebody jealous! Have you pissed anybody off recently? Neighbours etc?

    I thought nicking car badges went out in the eighties.

    Its a Seat Leon, its not a cupra just an FR edition. They only got the S badge from the front

    No not pissed anyone off, but it does look like it was only mine, and given they tried to take the grill I do wonder if it was a steal to order.

    Where did it happen mate? As a car owner that looks after my car and likes to take pride in it, you have my sympathy, it’s bang out of order and disgraceful, A to steal and B to cause so much damage to someone’s car to steal something of such little value. Hope the c*nty theives get their karma.

    On a side note, a ding in the door from some moron bashing their door against your car costs £40 Trade to have knocked out, yet people do it to other people’s cars day in day out. Infuriating.

    It's not always the same car though. I spread myself about a bit and try not to single out any particular make, age or model.

    It's sad when scumbags do these things. What exactly are they getting out of doing that aside from causing you a headache? Wankers.

    If it’s theft to order probably ten quid for a bag of crack. Or just the bag of crack.

    It was parked on the street in a little quiet close, in Bedworth.

    Yeah very irritating when someone prangs your door. Even worse, I was walking down whitefriars st not long ago, and a normal looking couple got in their parked car which was parked on the street, which was a bit if a banger. She drove straight into the car in front, the reversed into the car parked behind, then clipped the car in front again as she pulled out. Didn't even stop or acknowledge what they had done, just drove off. Luckily I go the number plate and left a note on the two cars.

    Had a few issues in the last couple of months, one was crime and the other an accident :(

    Have you bothered reporting it to the police for a crime number? It's going to be a bastard as if you go through the insurance there is the excess and then the increase in premium.

    A bit of a long shot, could try a breakers / ebay for a bumper and save a fair bit if they have one in your colour?

    Had my house broken into last week, police can only do so much but were great with me, insurance company not so much. Thief's are right down with lowest of the low and I wish an extremely painful death on the wankers.

    Even worse when it is just for the sake of it :(

    What did they take?

    SBT Neighbourhood Watch needed.

    Laptops, watches, tools and money, about 8k of stuff, insurance paying out for everything apart from the money as they didn't cause enough damage when they broke in to cover the money, which is baffling.
