    i guess get a wheel clamp too, put it on a drive with a ground anchor maybe? I'm going to order a wheel clamp soon.

    Mine is often parked in the road due to my mothers immobile Morris so personally it freaks me out too.

    I hope this gets found, beautiful landy.

    Scary, all that security and it still got pinched :(

    As said above, ground anchor and chain it down? Impractical to say the least but what else can you do??

    B*stards.

    X-Eng pedal lock is stainless steel
    On test cutting disc replaced three times and still not off.
    Also CCTV shows one surviving an hour’s attack by thieves with tools before they defeated it.

    Expensive but probably the best piece of anti-theft hardware you can fit.
    Sadly l don’t think they do one for the TDCi, not sure why.

    I would be interested to know what discs they were using.
    there was a recent post on FB of one that had been cut out of a fender, Nothing is going to last a sustained attacked.

    Cheers

    Do you have any idea of what padlock would be best for that solution? I have a chain but am after a suitable lock that would fit through some very meaty chain.

    With regards to what happened after I don't know. Probably never recovered :(

    I would go for a motorcycle set up, some of that stuff is really hefty.

    Cheers

    Yes you are right.
    We can only do the best that we can. If they really want it, they will take it.

    Sad indictment of the world we now live in:-(((
    It's easier to pinch stuff than to work for it. Probably been stolen to order. A friend of mine is just glad when she sees her Landy still on the drive in the morning.
    You are right about "If they want it, they will take it". Sounds like you did your best security wise. Though possibly chaining her to a tree may help. I live between Warrington & Runcorn, so will keep my eyes peeled, but no doubt she's miles away now:-(((
    She looks brill btw. Hope you get her back soon
