mad Scumbag Broke into my Ute !!!!

Hi guys
Just feeling a little pissed at the moment, had my BA XR8 Ute parked around the side of the W Hotel in Wooloomooloo Sydney yesterday afternoon, and while I was in the Hotel having a relaxing meal and drink with my girlfriend some Miserable low-life scumbag popped my passenger door window and stole my girls leather jacket which she foolishly left on the seat.
Theres a small gouge in the top of the door trim and flippin glass all over the place, even the tiniest minute pieces that are still stuck in the leather seats.

Was having a great weekend, went to the HoldenvsFord show, everything was sweet and in 5 seconds some mungrel ruined it all.

Not Happy Jan.



PS. If this was to ever happen to anyone else in Sydney, contact Brad Garlick Ford, thier quote to fix the window was $156 for the glass and $40 to install.
The funny part is I rang Jubilee Ford and they quoted $325 and came down to $300, rang Dale Ford and they quoted $250 but didnt have one in stock.
Rang NRMA and excess was $450 so wasnt worth going through insurance, but they got some mob, National Windscreens I think, who quoted $280 - $290 fitted at my place, and Windscreens O'Brien quoted $280, down from $320 at my place or $250 at the branch.

So Brad Garlick seems to be best choice if you can wait the next day or Windscreens O'Brien if you need it asap and come to you.

I do not wish this experience on anybody, it sux big time.


Bonk.

It piss's you off big time, a smashed window because it's not worth going through insurance because of the excess, and then you have to fork it out your self, scumbag's.

I know Galaxy, when I asked about if things were stolen from the car they said, No you aren't covered for that, you have to pay extra on your premium to cover stolen items from inside.

I know how you feel mate, both of my locks have been taken to task with a screwdriver. Really annoys you, especially when they scratch your car whilst doing it.

That is worse than mine scott, I just have to replace the glass, retint the window and vacumn the inside, you have to go through the pain of repairing and painting two doors, alot more expensive exercise.

And I know how you feel as I had that happen to me on an XD I used to own when I was a teenager, they used a slide hammer on both my locks.
