    Some right scruffs about isn't there, how did they nick it was it unlocked with keys in or did they Hotwire it? IDE be devastated if once I got set up this happened.

    I'm time served working in car body shops, that van will be chopped by now and ringed with an accident damaged.

    Did he buy the van pretty recently, because I've heard of lads from round my end, selling vans at high prices and fitting them with dodgey ecu's so any key will start it, or they just get a key copied. they just steal it back and ring it with another, very dodgey business.

    I was thinking about upping the security on my van.

    This has made me think.

    Hope he gets it back in one piece.

    The simplest form of security is a fuel cut off switch to fuel pump. I have one hidden.

    It's doesnt take long to swap number plates, they could have it ringed on another van within a few hours.

    Only times people get them back is if it was kids joyriding them, but it would have been either crashed or dumped by now and recovered.

    Good idea what damo said with the fuel cut out,

    When I get my system fitted I'm getting the split relay battery so will be able to turn engine off and lock van when working.

    Tench your on the right track, thieves should defo get there hands lobbed off, or at least a finger!
