I came from work today only to find my car gone. I called the towing companie but they didnt have it and it wasnt in a area where i would get towed. The only conclusion left is that it got stolen. :( :(

If anyone in Vancouver area sees this car please call the police or msg me.
Plate #606 GPG they would probably take them off but who knows maybe they are stupid.


It has a German flag decal on the back next to the GTI logo its slanted and goes BlackRedYellow

Terrible. I thought these things were practically unstealable. I lost a car once too, I know the emptiness.

That so f'ing sucks. Sorry. All my best out to you.

I seriously am sorry to hear that. If you find the guy before the cops do, you'll have about 2000 members here ready to fuck that guy up. You just give us the word.

Best of luck getting it back.

Keep us updated.

I am sorry to hear about your stolen ride, that truly SUCKS ASS!!! I just got my GTI back from the body shop today, I was without my car for two weeks, everyone at work said I was a moody bitch during that time. I can only imagine having it gone forever. :'(

hey hey! Don't say forever. He'll get it back. I can't imagine going to my car to not find it there. It's my worst nightmare. I hope you find your car.

Yeah, what 10bv01 said !! I wish I lived farther northwest so that I could keep an eye out for it. You'll get it back though, keep your hopes up.

That really sucks to hear... I feel for ya :'(

I had a car stolen a few years back and the experience was terrible;
I spent the extra $$$ for the LoJack/EWS on my GTI and if anyone steals my ride I wanna make sure they get caught :mad:
If I catch somone, it will be a very unpleasant experience for them and they WILL be happy when the cops and the ambulance show up ;)

I've had 2 vehicles stolen since I've been on the west coast. I know the feeling. I'm stickying this thread for a few days. You may want to give your last 6 of the vin, best way to identify it as they have probably removed the plates, stickers and any other identifying marks.

Oh my god i almost had a heart attack. Police called me today and they said they think they found my car and i need to come down to see it. They said it looked bad and could not get positive id. I went down and the car was torn appart.

THANK GOD IT WAS A WHITE ONE CUZ MINE IS SILVER.

I do feel bad for the owner of that one though.

Yes Please, I'm in Vancouver also, any details on what to keep my eyes out for would be great.

But now the next question is, how....

Corrupt dealership worker maybe? That's how they got those Mercedes with the laser cut keys in "Gone in 60 seconds".

I chased down a silver GTI I saw today (one of the first) ... sadly it had different plates :(

Got my eyes out though.

They certainly could have changed the plates, did this GTI have painted side panels?? If so, you really ought to call the police.

Damn, didn't keep my eyes on that.. But it is identical to the picture minus the fact I don't remember if it had the painted side panels. The one I saw did also have rear window tint.

-edit-

I just confirmed with my girlfriend it did in fact have painted side panels. Now, we aren't 100% on this, but pretty darn sure after reviewing images of a stock GTI without the painted side panels, I would have to say they we're painted as they would have stuck out like a sore thumb to me had they not.

Looks like we have a match then, do you know what the license plate said???

Painted side panels on a silver GTI are very rare. Where was it driving exactly, in what direction, what neighborhood were you in? The more information we can get the better. You should definitely call the police and let them know where and when you saw it.

The sooner dawar gets his car back the better.

I saw the vehicle heading Westbound on King Road as it crosses over McCallum Road.

This was way out in Abbotsford else I would hop in my car right now and spend a few hours searching around the area.

I also would have taken more time if I was not already late and driving my girlfriend to a photo shoot.

Thats about the best info I can give. I don't know if it will really help.

Does anyone else live in Washington or Vancouver?

I live in Texas, if I lived up there, you know I'd be driving around until I found the bastard.

FF, could you message all members and have them be on the look for it if they live in Washington or Vancouver, it would be really awesome if Myfastgti.com was responsible for recovering a stolen car.
