    Coming from someone that had a car stolen and returned, you won't want it back. No matter how good of a condition it comes back in or what repairs are done, it's never the same. Hopefully it's insured for what it actually costs to replace.

    Sorry for what you're going thru, it's never nice.

    I'm not liking my chances of getting it back at this stage.
    The insurance company is already being pushy and difficult...
    They want me to make a standard stolen vehicle claim, (which binds me to their terms), rather than make a claim for damages against the repairer. (Which allows me more flexibility).

    I'm getting legal advice before I do anything else at this stage.

    Not a pleasant experience at all.

    Good idea to get legal advice...but ultimately your insurance company will have a go at the repairers insurance company...if they have insurance (which I hope they do)

    That sux, hope you never see it again tho... Seems like joyriders so itll be trashed.
    Definitely dont make a claim against your insurance unless the shop hasnt got cover. Youll get what its worth from the shop insurers , didnt it have a brand new LS9 in it and those wheels were mint lol, yours will give you market value unless you have extras on your insurance..
    definitely feel ya pain, but you could turn into a win if plays out ok

    I think you will find that for theft the owners insurance is what covers the car - not the workshop.
    Reason I say that is probably 10 years ago i had 3 x customers cars broken into in my yard one night.
    I rang my insurance & was quickly told that I wasn't liable & the owners of the cars are liable for their vehicles, even
    when in my care. (I paid to get all the cars repaired/rectified out of my own pocket as a show of good will
    to my clients)
    So to the OP, make sure you check who is liable in your case......

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    Liability is a bit murky at the moment, so still trying to get some clear legal advice.

    Funny you mentioned it, but the wheels actually were mint as they were recently repaired when the dealer damaged them, and it also had brand new Mylink upgraded to the latest version, new Michelin PSS tyres and discs all round.

    Unfortunately, no LS9 transplant though...

    Finding a suitable/equivalent replacement won't be easy.

    I find that funny as a contractor i hold goods in transit cover and that also covers items in my car at my factory
    So i think really the shop is liable
    But of course these days no one puts their hand up so pass the buck

    Your liable I think if its proven your negligent - for example in your case if you leave the car unlocked & goods in
    plain view for any Tom to walk past & help himself.. Same for the workshop?? But yeah, everyone tries to pass the buck these days....

    I've had my car damaged in the care of a well known Sydney workshop, they didn't accept any liability and the advice to me was that I would be unlikely to get them to do so. I copped it instead even though they moved it and had complete control of the car when it was damaged. I think the same will happen here unfortunately
