I can't believe this! I get to my car this afternoon, Click on the alarm remote to disarm it as I approach and it beeps at me 4 times to indicate the alarm has gone off - 1st time ever. So, I go to get into my car and that's when I notice that my front bumper is gone! Some total loser has, in broad daylight, got under my car, unbolted my front bumper and stolen it with the car alarm probably blasting away. Anyway, I have reported it to the police and informed them of some unique identifying features of the bumper.

I would be grateful if anyone, particularly Canberrans, could keep an eye out for someone selling a complete front bumper for an 89 VN or a VN that they have seen suddenly scoring a new bumper. My bumper is the standard grey type and one of the distinguishing features is a hole and impression left by a tow bar. The police are aware of the rest. If you do see anything please pm me or email me at [email protected]. I will treat all email privately.

If per chance the person who stole my bumper reads this forum I will not press charges for the return of my bumper. But, if I see my bumper on another car (i get around a lot and have a keen eye) I will press charges.

Yep, I'm still amazed why someone would want to steal a stock bumper from an old Executive VN. I was almost hoping it was someone's idea of a joke. I can see the funny side to it. The police had never heard of someone doing this and were slightly amused as well. So, much for car alarms. I'm glad I also use a steering wheel lock and "Full Metal Jacket" on the ingnition switch. Otherwise I guess the whole car could have gone. Then again, there was no obvious attempt to open the car. Whoever did this knew what they wanted and how to get it. After all they would have had to have had to have the right size spanners on them and know which bolts to remove. I'm guessing it was some VN owner low on cash or even a wrecker/panel beater. I just hope someone owns up before I find it.

That really sucks dude... Sounds like midnight spares...

I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years back. After going to get in my car after a night at my girlfriends house I discovered an entire taillight was missing from my XF ute. The screws were sitting in the gutter and all the wiring was intact...

I definitely made sure I installed the padlock when I bought a new Tonneau...
