Talked to my neighbour (cop) and he said there were so many subarus stolen over this weekend including two crashed and possibly both written off just in wellington last night. Both within 5 mins of where i live. They are the ones he knew of anyway

Saw a couple of comments on facebook around this one that apparently 12 were nicked in chch over the weekend, not sure on the source here but yeah. I'm no expert and don't know the details but I'd say this one was scoped out and targeted due to the value of the parts on it.

Yeah that kind of behaviour isn't just some kid pinching a car for a joy ride, this is an organised effort. You would really hope police can get a lead on a case like this. Where is the chop shop and where are all the parts going? Someone saw something...

 

It seems to be a growing problem, anytime I have to street park my car in the city I disable the sh*t out of it. Can't stop them towing it away but it is better than nothing. Maybe it is time everyone needs to buy a gps.

 

It sucks that a few low lifes can ruin it for for the rest.

@YoungOne this is absolutely disgusting. I feel for the guy man.

 

I get so irate about theft in general. Takes the lowest of the low to steal from someone. Such an invasion of personal space and trust. Makes me so mad. 

 

I was recently thinking of approaching the local police an offering to use my car to sting these scumbags. Seriously, I'm so over it.

 

@IZichard Agree, maybe the only way is to GPS every car. But even then, there will always be ways around it.

 

Like you said too, where are all the parts going? Facebook is as good a black market as anything but I don't typically see high profile parts on there. Are they being shipped off overseas?

That is exactly what I'm starting to think, NZ is too small of a place to sell rarer parts without someone realising where they came from. It's hardly like you could sell a 390kw engine on Facebook without someone close to the owner noticing.

 

If parts are actually going overseas then that is serious business.

I would say either going overseas or stolen to order.

      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!!
