Gang life is alive and kicking in the young community and so often the teenagers will use a knife.
Apart from that,particulate filters are being cut up as they often fail at under 100,000 miles and that might be two years on a modern van.Yes,there are new tests coming to catch the tamperers but it can be worth removing a tampered system for the test and replace with that new spare good one in the garage.One of my boys had recently tampered his on his 200,000 mile Citroed as the part is double the value of the car.He is hoping to have it another year.
It has come to a point that 5 year old vehicles will be difficult to maintain soon.
Brother,today,his led sidelight failed on his 2 year old Toyota.Part is £100 plus VAT and fitting.About £200 for a sidelamp.
Its the tiny AYGO petrol and it is struggling to get 50 mpg.Neat little car though with very low emissions under the 100 figure.£8500 new.It would pay to buy these little cars new every 3 years.
