If it’s me I will find auris 1.2t cvt near me and we test drive it for 20 min, this car may well drives as smooth as hybrid and efficiency on a run almost as good, plus Toyota cvt are fine in terms of reliability. Skoda are just not my favourite cars, despite I like the design unless they are fully loaded they are too basic and grey, worse then vw.

How?

Why?

 

They appear to be smashing drivers windows and removing steering wheels.

The why would be demand for BMW airbags in the 2nd hand market or abroad.

 Our steering wheel was taken on Saturday night

What your car doing in pic?

My car went through wrong pothole on motorway, shame what motorways we have in U.K. , i had traveled with that Toyota from London to the end of Europe mainland without any road incident but 8 min from my house on M25 I had cut my tyre badly, and so many more drivers. The cars on front and rear were all of the road damaged and awaiting rescue. So bad opening that almost anyone who hit it was out with puncture at least. 
Beautiful morning:

Total damage was only the tyre, wheel seems ok, holds air pressure, no flatten or misshaped, new tyre , wheel balance and tracking., Inconvenience priceless, I did all that less than 3 months when I switched to winter tyres., total price now around £130. I hope is the only damage done, because sometimes you won’t able to see damage like small cracks in wishbone etc and all that can lead to dangerous situations in a future. Roads are really bad at the moment. Btw on radio heart was mentioned this morning about catalytic converters stolen from cars, and police reports something like that, well need more attention. I,am going to continue my work as the car is jacked up before thieves drive past and lay under it to help themselves 😉😁

This is an old article, Toyota hybrids are trendy now. We need more media involved and thieves to target mp s Lexus's if they have ones, then they can see why we are all complaining.  And bmw s air bags, why they need an airbags, selling for a spare parts or again there is something precious inside?

No , I believe in the forum space . There are a lot more gone for sure but in fact auris hybrids gen 1 are less popular with thieves.  Our one has its new cat fitted in less than a week time, was in stock in Watford dealer or the dealer was well prepared due to a high demand, we never knew. Prius all models but mostly gen 2 and gen 3 are top choice, then is Auris gen 2. Prius plus and Prius gen 4 comes after that. This is my observation.
