I'm also sorry to hear about the theft, but slightly skeptical. Are you
sure that you can trust this mechanic? If not him, then someone else who
might have had access to your keys from there? I have found my Audis to be
very well protected against theives. On my last one (a 100qa), a theif
tried to force open the locks from all the doors and still failed to get
in. When examining the door internals of my old cgt, it looked very well
protected against "slim-jims" being poked down the side of the window. If
there was no visible signs of entry, then I'd suspect that the keys were

Cheers, Mike.

ask if they removed it for some reason. They say no and that they thought I
 removed it as it was missing when they went out into the parking lot to ge
t the car. Well, it's now an hour later and I'm still waiting for the cops
to show up. Fortunately it seems that the idiot theifs couldn't figure out
the trunk on a CGT because my amps are still in there (the sub was "in cabi
n"). This sucks!!
