Britains most vandalised cars

Recommended Posts

Article in the Telegraph.

"The Lexus IS is the most vandalised car in Britain, according to new figures.

Second most attacked car is the BMW Z4, followed by the MINI One, in what insurer Swiftcover calls its "Vehicle Vandalism Index".

The majority of vehicles in the "top 10" are prestige cars, with the Mercedes CLK taking fourth place, followed by the Audi TT."

Skoda does indeed seem an odd bed fellow.

Perhaps owners report the defects as vandalsim rather than general deterioration :sofa:

Christ I did not need that, but it's proof again that the world hates you when you have a german car.

I guess the Skoda is there due to the VW link making it as good as german?

Personally, as there are so many newer ones about, I'm suprised there are no porsche in there.

How about the upside down license plate? Photoshop anyone?

If you did not know before, the most vandalised (stolen) cars in the USA does not contain one vehicle from the same list of manufacturers! Lots of Hondas, Toyotas and trucks. Not a Merc, Audi or Bimmer to be found :gathering: .
