Yorkshire and Humber / Stolen - 21.03.2015 - Black 110 XS Station Wagon - Sheffield

My 110 was stolen from the Malin Bridge area of Sheffield in the early morning of 21.03.2015.

It was a Black 110 Station Wagon XS, 2.4 D (registered in June 2011).

The plate that was on it was VJL6 and was fitted with the standard factory alarm.

With silver wing top checker plates, black sill protector checker plates and an advert for Sheffield Aero Club on the spare wheel.

Fitted with "extender" seat rails on the driver side, sun visor mirrors and the additional TINY glovebox.

Apart from odd scuffs , the rear offside mud flap is bolted to the bodywork with a three inch piece of painted angle iron inside the body - my only repair!

Thanks for posting this heads up.     Good to hear that they didn't get away with her.     

Sadly, as you've only too well discovered, LR factory security on Defenders is not up to much and a decent organised team will have your vehicle away in a couple of minutes.

Once you get her back, please take a look around on here and indeed other forums for the types of security layers you can employ.     There is always a chance that they will have another crack.        The more layers (taking a practicle common sense approach for everyday use), the more they have to overcome.
was alerted to my wifes car alarm going off yesterday at 1.30am - 25.03.15

ran outside to find my recently purchased landrover (14 plate) with bonnet removed, ECU missing, RHS indicator removed with some kind of modified bulb fitted to short the alarm
Driver lock broken, lock barrel removed from column, driverside speaker removed and cable looms disconnected - blocked driveway with my wifes car and locked bonnet away

Security - factory alarm/immobiliser (now realise this is totally inadequate after reading the forums and seeing how quickly/easily they got round these)

internal clock stopped at 1.10am, disturbed them at about 1.30am

Car has now been recovered by landrover - apparently they were minutes away from driving off with it, gang of possibly 3-4 and knew what they were doing

Police been round and finger printed nothing as used gloves

Can see why your confused Rog....

Can we be sure they're the same truck ?   ... White roof gone in second pic and now an HT not SW...

Appreciate owner might have modded the truck big style but then the old photo is pretty bl**dy useless if it doesn't show the vehicle as it is currently...

Have updated the records but not completely convinced TBH
:( :(

I'm sure I've seen that 90 on Def2 forum before.
Certainly has a familiarity about it Jon...  8)

Owner has updated FB Group to inform us a DiskLok was fitted...  ;)
