Range Rover stolen and recovered

Hi all,

Unfortunately my Range Rover was stolen from my home a few nights ago, and thankfully recovered as a result of the in control and police !

However, the scumbags have caused damage to the in control / tracker unit by removing some of the wiring. (I'm not great with my tech)

Without looking at the car, my dealer has quoted 2/3k + vat at best, and worst case scenario being the whole wiring loom needing replacing at 8/9k + vat. I do not want to go down the insurance route, as my fleet policy premiums will go sky high.

Does anyone have any reputable recommendations who are also able to carry out such works ? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Ateeq

Would it invalidate future insurance if you don't get it done by a main dealer?

RRLondon in Battersea - worth giving them a call though to see if they have experience in this sort of repair.

Yes, that's the place. I used them when I had my L320, with amazing results at first, and then went a teeny bit downhill in quality as they expanded and some of the customer service had to be delegated. But they were very open to feedback and always looked after me. I would recommend and trust them. L405 P400e Autobiography (MY2020)... Silicon Silver / Espresso

Hi guys, really appreciate all the comments and suggestions. Car was stolen without keys, they didn't even come to the door to scan for anything. I've now had a Ghost Immobiliser fitted, which will hopefully make things a little harder for these scumbags. As a little update, I spoke to the suggestions below, along with a few other specialists who all pretty much recommended that I go to main dealer for this type of repair work. Fault has been diagnosed (fingers crossed Shocked ) and the works will be carried out towards the end of this year at LR. Will keep you all updated, Ateeq.

What model year was the car?

Strange they didn't use a relay scanner, did they force entry somehow?

It's a MY2018. Nothing at all, which is what was surprising. The CCTV footage shows the scumbag just walking up to the car and opening it, and gone within 30 seconds. At no point did they look around or approach the house.

If it was an MY18 with the new square keys they have UWB technology so should be impossible to relay attack with.

So short of them getting access to the ODB port of the car on a previous occasion (valet, garage, etc), I can't figure out how they've done it?

Did you leave the car unlocked? Mirrors open instead of closed is a big giveaway to theives. 30 seconds in the car sounds like he's trying to program it there and then but strange how he gained access with the newer UWB keys the 2018 models use . . .
