Wouldn't have been a fast getaway either!!!

A vehicle like this would stand out, so hope it's recovered quickly. Unless it's needed for a "foreign order"

If the police are onto it, with these new cameras on the pursuit cars ,they should find it.

Unless the perps are speeding they won't be noticed over here.

With number plate recognition in wa hopefully the boy and girls in blue will pick it up quickly.

Does not matter what brand you have, if your pride and joy is stolen....it's painful!

Hopefully he gets it back without any damage.

Post it on www.aulro.com.au That is the Australia wide site for Land Rover Owners. You may have a better chance of someone recognising it.
Good luck

Australia needs the LoJack system like in the USA.

LoJack recovery system

Gday
Navman have a system fitted to truck fleets for OH and S to make sure that drivers keep to the speed limits and drivibg times are not exceeded. The system also knows where the vehicle is at any given time .

I wouldn't hold my breath getting our police to adopt the Lojack system or something similar in the near future. The problem is priorities. Unless there is a child taken with the car or it's a hijacking with bodies on board, then it is just another theft. But in the states car theft is a major crime. I think that comes from the "good old west" when lives depended on having a horse. No here though.

I was told that the immobiliser in our 2005, 100 series GXL is pretty good and they would have to use a tilt tray. Well lets hope all is good.

The Police here are too busy "revenue raising" to do much else.

Coming home last night we had a car checking speed on the southern carriageway on the Hume at Governors Hill near Goulburn. Just on midnight after a WIN BY PARRA!!!!!

One trucky said the same as you Lyn. I was quite astonished, surprised and pleased to hear bundles of others tell him to pull his head in and leave the coppers to do a job that he most probably hasn't got the courage, intelligence nor the social responsibility to do. They used quite colourful language that I won't use. Surprising!!

You know I agree with those bloke. What a bugger of a job.

Quite right Phil, hell of a job most of us me included wouldn't or couldn't do. None the less, 90% of those new recruits coming out of WAs police academy go for traffic as their first choice presumably because it's easy!
An officer I know, now retired, reckoned unless they gave them a pretty car to drive they wouldn't bother.
Not sure if that is true but that was his cynical view after 30 odd years as a copper.
My own view is if traffic cops policed all offences equally, I and most others would be quite happy, but minor speeding appears to be the priority.
General duties is another job altogether and they are really at the pointy end of a tough job and we should all be thankful for them doing it.
