Wow -- that's concerning. Kind of an odd thing to steal though -- there can't be a big market for reselling these, right?

Bull****. I'll believe it when you post the aftermath photos AND explain how you discovered the "theft."

We'll I think walking out to your car and seeing two holes in the front would be kind of obvious. But I have never heard of something like that happening on any car so I would like to see pictures and the video.

never know? the first week i got my car, i went to dtla and someone stole both my lower bumper grills. im assuming it was somebody with a regular a6. i couldn't even order new ones right away as the car was still so new that there wasn't part numbers available for them to order yet.

Keep an eye on Craigslist and eBay.

For eBay, set up a "saved search" for keywords related to these items.

For Craigslist, you can use this RSS feed trick... http://www.pocketyourdollars.com/201...earch-results/

GOOD LUCK CATCHING THESE VERMIN!!! :-) sincerely
