I got up Wednesday morning, one of the kids opened the gates and it was only when I got back home & I went to close the gates I noticed that something was missing. My rear numberplate had gone. The plates on my car are in the standard euro type numberplate holders and it had been unclipped and the plate removed. Checked the front plate and someone had tried to unclip the holder but failed so it was loose at one end but still held in. I know the plate holders were closed properly when I changed the plates to my personalised plate & made doubly sure they were closed properly. All reported to the police just incase someone uses my plate for something naughty. I have got another rear plate made and have glued them into the plate holders this time (I can get them out if I need to with glue release). Then today I get a guy knocking on the door asking who's the Honda CR-V is and telling me its really easy to steal that type of car and goes into his routine of trying to show me a video on his phone, that was downloaded from sky news, showing someone using the obd exploits to steal a BMW. He then starts on I need to get all the glass etched with a number. I had already told him I wasn't interested & eventually just turned and walked away. Coincidence? Who knows but reported that to the police too who have given me a log number as something didn't ring true. The guy had a small piece of clear acrylic with a sticker on it and a number etched and his phone he used to show the video so not your typical door knocking salesman type. Strange thing is I had a 1998 C class merc for the last 10 years & that was fitted with my personalised plate & looked far more than it was & nothing. I get the Honda and get this guy knocking on the door, Maybe with the personalised plate people think the CR-V is newer than it is, the plate is a 3 number 3 letter ageless plate my father bought me as a present many moons ago. The letters mean nothing to me but since my late father bought it for me it has some sentimental value and I have had it fitted to a few cars over the years. A strange few days for sure.
