    Brand new S3 stolen

    It's becoming all to common now.... I'm sorry to hear mate. Someone tried breaking into my girlfriends house too and i think it was for the same reason - after her motor. My advise to all owners would be to leave your keys at the top of the stairs - that way if they've come up the stairs...
