Stolen Au1 Xr8

On sunday night in Elsternwick (Melbourne) someone stole my dads XR8 (PQJ 857). It was silver like the ads and was in showroom condition - he really looked after it. If you see anyone driving this car around (apart from pulling them out and thrashing them to within an inch of their life) alert the local cops.
Theres been too many threads in this vain recently :(

Damn! sorry to hear about that mate.
I'll keep my eyes open for it.
Where was it stolen from?

Hope it comes back in 1 piece.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

I have a wizz bang top-of-the-range expensive immobiliser in one of my cars - one of those three point ones. My auto elec's showed me the other day how to start the car with a screw driver by-passing all the electrics - the car started and the immobiliser did didly .......

My idea for security? A doberman in the driver's seat ....

Dreders, I hope your dad gets his car back ...

Thanks for all the support guys, its appreciated.
The car was stolen from Gordon St, near the cinemas, and there was no broken glass at the scene. Dads pretty sure it was professionals and his cars in bits, but we'll just have to wait and see.
