STOLEN ED XR6 - please help!

Sad stuff... i have owned and maintained a White ED XR6 for over 5 years now, and have had it stolen from Glen Iris near Melbourne on Friday 10th Dec. This car was kept immaculate and to have seen the empty car space was quite horrifying for me.

Even though its a long shot... i urge anyone that sees what they believe may be a this car to contact me. The details are as follows. I really want it back, as apart from my girlfriend, it was number 1. (Although at times it was in first place)

DETAILS:

Reg: BJMXR
Colour: White - with grey and red strip.
Body: straight panels, ED body kit and spoiler, tinted windows, two flaked paint spots on boot (dont leave bird s#!t on your car!), tow bar, ford sticker on rear windscreen covering scratch on glass.
Drive: 5 spd manual
Suspension: Bilstien front and rear - Lowered slightly
Interior: Factory momo steering wheel, alpine premium stereo
Exhaust: Midas 2.5in straight through with Lukey muffler and oval tip

STOLEN ED XR6 - please help!

I'd speak about this in the pub i reckon...

Sad Stuff... On Friday 10th December my ED XR^ was stolen from High St Glen Iris early in the morning. This car i had kept for over 5 years as it was passed down to me and was always kept in immaculate condition.

Even though its a long shot, i urge anyone to offer any info or any sightings of a car that suits the discription. It is easily heard driving along as its 2.5in Lukey exhaust was a lovely tone. I am distraught about this occurence, so any leads or anything would be more than greatly appreciated.

Details:

Reg: BJMXR
Body: White, grey and red strip, factory body kit, 16in Alloy 5 spoke wheels, tinted windows, ford sticker on rear windscreen covering scratch on glass, two small paint patches on boot peeling from bird s%!t (wash it off yours!)
Interior: Momo wheel, alpine premium 6 stacker CD player
Mech: 5 spd manual
Susp: Bilstien front and rear, lowered slightly
Exhaust: 2.5 in straight through lukey muffler, oval chrome tip.

My mobile number is 0407 353 833 and email is bjmxr@hotmail.com

I would be the happiest guy alive to get it back... cheers guys...

PS: One of these shots is a little photoshopped, i increased the wheel size and lowered it a bit... and the other two are taken before i put the Bilstien shocks on... so now she's a little lower...

Re: STOLEN ED XR6 - please help!

Cheers guys appreciate it... no broken glass so id assume they perhaps had the skills electronically to get in and disable smart lock etc. My fear would be a bit of a professional job or a strip and trash scenario. Hopefully its just dumped (still in tact) somewhere to be found. Naturally the insurance i'll be getting back is nothing like what this particular one was worth... still got my fingers crossed.
