A colleagues BP5 (NA) got broken into last night. Looks like the ding bats didn't know about CANBUS and factory immobilisers and tried to punch the ignition and hotwire it...

 

So much potato. Obviously nicked a couple of older ones and thought the new ones would be just as easy.

What about the removable boss kits? pretty sure they would have to be certified however would get rid of some of the thief's?

 

I will never forget my mates mirage was in the driveway about 5 years ago and he had brought WRX seats to put in it however was test fitting the seats and they had not been bolted down. the guy broke in  to the house loaded the car with TV etc and went to floor it down the drive seats would of flipped back and he drove down the bank haha

Re. removable boss kits, I've heard anecdotally of cars being driven with 2 vice grips on the spline.

      Hi all. So I've just seen on Facebook about a thing called The Gumboot rally it's on the weekend of the 7th of April. Goes from Hamilton somewhere down to New Plymouth then across to Taupo and also includes The Forgotten Highway which is an awesome road to drive, as I have done it a few times now. If you are interested go have a look on Facebook should be a fun weekend I reckon.
       
      Stay safe on the roads over this time there are some CRAZY people out there who only think about themselves!!

      Help me please Hi iv fitted a dump valve to my vectra c 19 cdti 150 bhp. The 1 I bought was a twinport or receculation valve I don't no just bought and had a go of fitting it my self.  On looking at the car I thought I needed to block the 2nd port so have done bought a t and fitted it on the main intake Of The top Of The intercooler to the inlet on to Of The head.  Ran the bleed pipe and td it in to the on top Of The intake now it's just realeasing through the revs rather than when I lift of it's not because I blocked the other port is it thanks
