hi all i had my car stolen back in november
got it back but it dont feel the same
as it did, has any1 else had there st stolen and got it back? does it feel the same as b4 it got stolen? does it bother u that it was stolen? did u keep it or get rid of it?
my car was my pride and joy and i work hard to pay for it just wondered if the feeling of it being stolen goes after awhile? as u can probably tell im proper gutted that it was stolen
as i have been looking to get rid of it but not sure if i want to now.

thanks

Mat Ive seen you mention this a few times and it has clearly gotten to you. I had an old car broken into a while back, it wasnt stolen but it never felt the same. Weird feeling but I do understand it. Thhe car was cleaned weekly before the break in. Afterwards it just got me from A-B never got cleaned, parked like it was abandoned etc etc. If I was you I'd possibly trade it in/sell it, and get another one in a different colour.

I think quite a lot of people that get theirs back after it was stolen go on to flog it and get something else. Whether that's another ST or a totally different car all depends on how you feel. I think if this happened to me, I'd look to sell it and get a totally different car, any ST just wouldn't be right any more.

Hope it feels better for you soon mate, selling a recovered stolen can be an absolute flunt, good luck

I would have to agree, the feeling after some
had invaded your space and abused your pride and joy would put me off wanting to keep it. Plus isn't it now a stolen recovery car?

Mine was stolen about a year ago
But had tracker fitted and was found undamaged about an hour after theft reported, even the copper who found it said it was in imaculate condition !

Im lucky. I put mine away when i get home from work. Though some other people near me have
's in the open and they've been ok, but i like my garage. Also the key is with me at all times, and the spare is in the gun safe.

HEAR THAT TEA-LEAFS? GUN SAFE. KEEP AWAY!!!
OR DEAD TEA-LEAF!
