Great news and hearing what you're saying about security. It's easy to get complacent. I do lock mine, mostly.
And while we're on the theme (apologies in advance for duplicating thread). Here's summat I found today.

Darren, get a tracker or a device that will shut the car of as they drive of. A big f*ck off alarm, a huge dog, a shotgun and 999 on speedial as well as CCTV.
My brother in laws mate had five guys come into his house in broad daylight and steal his RS 4 cab. On the Audi S/RS forums a car is stolen almost monthly!

amar when i bought my s4 avant i got a tracker for it but the best item i got was an anti-hijack imobiliser. whever they steal the keys from home or just hi-jack me at the lights it would just allow them to drive about a mile away then it would cut the engine and sound a very loud alarm. was fun when i let people take it for a test drive. it was the best device i bought

Default Recovered!

Sorry for the late update guys, but I've been a bit preoccupied with this and other matters since - the good news is that we got her back, we've made her better, and she's back in safe hands

Thanks for all the support and advice
