Stolen from Aberdeen 07-01-13 - Sprint Blue B7 RS4 "T99 RKY

Post by brn7y » Mon Jan 07, 2013 4:53 pm

Just heard on Facebook, another Aberdeen car stolen today last seen heading south out of city. No other details.

This is the third car I have heard of this month in this area, what is going on?

Does anyone know why there is such an increased demand for the B7 RS4 right now?

I think it's new b8 drivers realising they made a mistake selling up, just giving into temptation :thumb:

lol

I always wonder why the theft is so rampant in the UK. Useless to most of the world (RHD) so are they just for part outs?

Seems everytime I come to RS246 there is another home invasion RS4/RS5 theft, if not one of each. Maybe we don't report these thefts in the US and Canada on the forums? Or maybe vehicle theft in the UK is just that much more of a problem?

I also reckon you have a few more RS4s than we do. Only 2500 or so for North America.

They make great getaway cars still; seats 5 bank robbers comfortably, fairly quick with good road holding.

Don't forget the boot space Mike, fits six large grip bags fully loaded. Reminds me of the film Drive

Sorry, was out casing a joint, then had to see if the boot would hold 5 shotguns. Was a bit of a squeeze so I had to saw the ends off.

PS is it that obvious that I'm from south London?

Should have got an avant, you can get a hand held bazooka gun in the boot, and 2 Swedish blondes, ie women

Yeah, I've not moved into the terrorism, kidnapping or human trafficing game yet, but it's something I aspire too. Maybe then Ill step up and get an avant, or transit.
