Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Smile Thanks to everyone! Last Edition Beetle STOLEN-RECOVERED!

I recieved a call today from the Police in Peterborough. They have my Bug cornered in a community centre car park.
The thieves broke the steering column and all the wiring for the ignition indicators and wipers. so I have to get a 1977 column complete with stalks and a steering wheel cos the scroats wrecked that too.
But damage aside, I got my Bug and she should be purring down the autobahn again next week!

Many thanks to everyone for your best wishes and for looking out for me.

Nice one!

Shame about the damage, but that's repairable. Get an alarm on it.
