PostSubject: Sierra RS Cosworth and 2 x M3 Cabriolets stolen locally   Wed Jan 11, 2012 5:53 am

Hi,



Regretfully on the evening of the 5th of January 2012 i was called to my lock up between Ash and Wingham (Canterbury area) because it was on fire. On arrival the garage was pretty much burnt out along with Rolls Royce Silver Spirit. Closer inspection highlighted my moonstobe Blue Sierra RS Cosworth, Silver E36 M3 Cabriolet and Black E46 Cabriolet were missing from the garage. The police are looking into this but in 5 days i have heard nothing positive so am posting this in the hope someone local maybe offered cars or parts. Car details are



Sierra RS Cosworth 3DR (Photo below)

In moonstone blue with original wheels but 205 60 15 tyres rather than the normal 50 series ones, slightly lowered on Koni suspension. Stainless pipe and cone filter. It had (has?) original interior in very good condition except for the drivers seat lower support where the foam has disintergrated.







E36 M3 Cabriolet (T10 CAR)



In Silver with original unrestored alloy motorsport wheels. Black leather interior and approx 85K miles. A small hood repair on the passenger side behind the passenger rear window (about 3 inches long) and a lightly damaged passenger side front wing where the wheel touched when the track control arm broke. Otherwise a very tidy car.



E46 M3 Cabriolet (KH54RPV)



In Carbon Black mettalic with red leather interior (looks nicer than it sounds honest!) 19" wheel option and SMG2 gearbox. 62K miles from and a clean and tidy car other than bit of curb damage on the wheels.



Anyway if you hear anything or get offered anything i would really appreciate your help.



Thanks



Steve

No mate regretfully not. I eventually managed to speak to the police who said they really do need to start looking into this more but he has 12 other cases.....Unbelievable!



When i can work out how to move photo's from my phone i will post one of the poor Roller on it final journey
