Hi Clive
Just looking a t my picts and realised that it was you who took my son Tris out for some hot laps of Castle Coombe in your S4.
He too is gutted and was saying what a great experience it was thanks to your brilliant S4, and driving of course. Thanks for that
Have there been any developments?

Clive, I travel all over the Yorkshire region, almost daily, so will keep a close eye out for it.

If I spot it, I'll call plod, and let you know too.

Are there any distinctive interior mods to look out for? These are more difficult to swap out than externals like decals etc, so may make it easier to spot?

****ty news mate, hope you get her back soon.

Hi Clive,

So pleased for you! I hope you got her back in 1 piece and the scumbags were caught.

That a good result Clive

I am desperately curious as to how she was stolen, and more so how she was recovered, but maybe when the heat settles you can share some more...

Good to see one come back

Default Thanks!

Many thanks for all the support and good wishes, much appreciated

As much as I would like to share all the sordid details for the benefit of our readers, it is a sad fact of life that I need to be cautious about what I say in a public forum at this time.

In the meantime, my best advice to any who may have become as complacement as we did : seriously consider a thorough home security review. Apparently, 80% of car crime in our area is targetted at Audis!

I'm so happy this has been found! Gives me some hope for my car. I was just reading in our local newspaper today that some guys had broke into a poor guys house and tied him up whilst demanding the keys to his RS 4 and the location of the tracker! Ba$5$ds
