    Pete C is a Numpty

    My car was stolen from Ivy Avenue in Bath on Sunday night. I was initially hoping I'd done an 'andyfield' but we checked everywhere else it could have been parked and it's definitely not there. Plus I'm 100% sure it was where I thought anyway... we just had to check I wasn't being an idiot.

    Especially gutting since I had just agreed a sale with nene on this board and taken a substantial deposit. If anyone sees this car (or more likely bits of it, for sale or otherwise), please let me know ASAP so I can take it to the Police.

    The wheels make it fairly distinctive, here are some pictures:

    What a complete bummer. Anyone dodgy come 'view' the car? If you have any idea on the area they were from, might be a good place to start!

    That sucks

    you checked with the parking police if its been towed ? ..... last time I was in bath it took me 15 minutes to understand the parking instructions of every other day you are allowed to park on 1 side of the road for free other wise you need a permit or park for fee on the other side of the road if its an alternate day

    The only person who came to view the car (and indeed the only person I'd given my address to) was nene. If she's a car thief then I'm the archangel Gabriel

    First thing I did - there are no parking restrictions where it was and I park there all the time.

    That's a shitter Pete, for you AND for Nene.
    I really hate Bath now, too much crime happening, to be honest i think there's less crime in Chippenham than Bath now, says something when i can accidentally leave my car unlocked in chippenham and nothing happens, but in bath, you lock it and leave in a fairly public place and it still goes!!

    Indeed - methinks I'm getting the mother of all alarms fitted to my new car as soon as I can afford to

    Was it taxed okay - DVLA stole it? Do you still have all the ignition keys or has a set gone missing? Did it have NATS or had you replaced it?

    I'd definitely go to the police in case it shows up on NPR cameras.

    Taxed April '09, I have all the keys. Had an alarm but it was as old as the car, not even sure if it had an immobiliser function.

    Reported to the Police yesterday, they had nothing showing on their computer.

    I take it that the tax was still valid til after 31/8/08?

    Just thinking of Nazi style clampers doing away with it for Tex Disc evasion


    Seriously bad news Pete. Hope it turns up!
