    Cars Stolen 22nd Aug 17 at 7:56 PM
    Hey all,

    Feeling so confused at the moment - and my insurance company really arent clearing anything up at the moment....

    My house was broken into in the early hours of Monday morning, and consequently the thieves took my 2 vehicle - both under 2 years old and both on PCP.

    My insurance policy states that if the vehicles are stolen within 2 years of new ownership, they will be replaced with new ones of the same UK spec.

    I have been on the phone to the insurance again today as I wanted them to explain how this works - but they keep going on about market valuations and that someone will be in contact to discuss. Surely whats Market valuations got to do with anything when I have new car replacement?

    Does anyone have any experience of this? Are the insurance company going to try and pull a fast one with me?

    And this is generally the advice by the police. Whilst don't leave your keys on display but don't then take them upstairs to bed with you either.

    I better change my ways.

    So Audi has been forensically examined - they have found DNA and Fingerprints inside, and also some drink containers which are not mine which have been swabbed too. Hopefully this will lead to a positive match on Police systems and we will get atleast some justice - whether that be with just a TWOC offence!

    Both cars have been sorted now - we are just waiting to take delivery of the new cars - hopefully wont be too long before we are back on the road!!
