Thinking of buying a new 595. Concerned about theft.
« on: April 19, 2020, 08:58:44 am »
I used to have a 2010 Abarth 500. Miss it a lot. I’m interested in getting a new 595 but have been put off by the reports of theft. I don’t think I’d have been too bothered but I bought a 2017 Golf R estate and it was stolen 3 months later. I can’t be dealing with that again. Is there still a lot of these being stolen as per 2018? I know that car theft has gone up 200% since start of lockdown so perhaps not the best time to ask!

    From what I read, the amount of theft depended on where you live. Which is no help once it has happened.

    The option is to get an upgraded alarm system or tracker fitted, I know nothing about them, but worth looking.

    The simple approach with a Disc-lock is effective too.
