Mystified

I have recently investigated a number of thefts on vehicles in Melbourne. And am sort of stumbling over the reason of why the thefts have been committed............

Basically left hand indicaters, ie, the lense and the globe have been getting stolen off VX's, all models, only the left ones, no ideal why............

Hmmm, can the blinkers be used on either side, but turning it the other way???? I don't know my commos that well.

If it is true, I have no doubt that GM marketing will turn the whole thing into a huge positive marketing campaign, with Mark S. trumpeting the benefits & 'being in control' of starting your Commode from the gutter!

The theft of the blinkers is a common thing here in Sydney too. It is just young hoons knocking off the clear lens units to put on their cars in place of old fashioned amber ones. I see heaps of VT2 and VX with the LH blinker missing. I suppose kerb side is easier to knock off and not get run over.
