[x300] HOW MUCH?!

So, we were burgled during the early hours of this morning.
Fortunately, we awoke and disturbed the bas*ards, so they didn’t
get away with too much. However, they did get the car and house
keys:-(> Got an emergency locksmith round and, �355 later we had
new front door and garage door locks fitted. Called the local MD to
get a price for replacement locks/key and transmitters and, they’ve
just emailed me a quote.

1 Key Blank---------------------------------------�93.30

1 Ign Barrel Lock---------------------------------�613.63

2 Transmitters------------------------------------�290.92

Labour to fit and programme-----------------------�525.00

Tax-----------------------------------------------�304.57

Total---------------------------------------------�1827.42

So, be warned, keep your keys safe.–

Sounds like its time to approach your insurer. Fingers
crossed you have cover, was there forced entry? Read your
terms and conditions before you ring them. Some exclude
theft of keys unless there has been forced entry. Nearly
all have a limit but excess normally doesn’t apply. Pm me
if you need any more info. I’m in that line of work.

Thanks Kyle but, I’ve already been in touch with them. My
household insurance includes key cover up to �1000. The house and
garage locks came to �355 so, I can get �645 towards the car
costs. My car insurers don’t cover lost/stolen keys but, they’re
going to give me �100 as a goodwill gesture, without penalising my
NCD. That leaves a balance of c�1100 but, I’m not worried as I
know Neil, Dom, Peter Crespin, Jack H and Darrell (all fellow JL
members) are, as I type, writing out cheques or transferring funds
into my Paypal account:-)> After all, all my posts clearly state

It’s nasty, happened to me before. To stop the
undesirables coming back a bought a bullmastiff. She’s a
big dote And as soft a dog as you will ever see if your in
her ‘‘pack’’ this includes the cats and all the children at
the horse yard. They take turns to ride on her back much
to her delight… God help anyone she catches in the
house who isn’t meant to be there, nature would take its
course, as in she would rip bits of them according.–

Gary,
I feel your loss,
But it seems to me you obviously have a spare key
Any good MD can reprogram the sercurity so your old key and
transmitter no longer works
Granted doors and boot can be opened but as far as theft of car
Not going to happen.

Gary,
I have an old set of locks with a key off my old transit
van if you get stuck. I’ll soak em in a bit of 3in1 oil if
you’re interested. :wink:
On a serious note, if you catch the buggers or find out

services would be offered free of charge!

Good luck,

You have my commiserations Gary it must be tough living in
Harrow (the smoke), here in Essex one can leave the Jag on
the drive with the keys in it & the front door of the house
wide open and the villains just leave you pressies like a
burnt out car!

Still on the bright side the bstrds didn’t trash the place
and cause damage or harm.–

I landed in Greater London from the US in the early hours…

However, after a superb Virgin Upper Class flight, complete with
bed an as much champagne as I could drink, I would obviously not
want to ruin the afterglow by slumming around in your old beater.

So I’m in the clear. Oh yes, in the clear. It was just a
coincidence, absolutely a coincidence.

You need a new battery in the remote by the way, and squirt some
graphite in that boot lock because it was very stiff.

Sorry to hear of the trouble Gary. You have my
condolences. I do have a couple of questions though.

  1. If the miscreants were able to get into the house once
    without the keys, what benefit is there to re-keying the
    house locks?

  2. Is it time to take down the plywood fish shaped key
    hook thingy that you keep your keys on by the door?

Just askin…–

My dear Rosser, being the kind, compassionate soul that you are I

deep plight, please reconsider.

Jack, your mirrors weren’t taken but, I have listed them on a well

Given that cost, wouldn’t it be more economical to buy a
wrecked X308 for 500GBP then swap the locks out? Then all you
are looking at is re-programming costs.

Then you can sell parts from the wrecked X308 cheaply to
recoup the cost and sell the rest for metal…

That’s what I did with my XJ12 when the bumper got crunched
and I was looking at $6500 in parts (bonnet, front bumper,
grill, leaper from dealership).–
