Default I really don't like Thieves(now fixed)

Luckily it wasn't the car itself, but something on the car. The Chrome grilles which are popular on the Aurora board were taken from my car sometime within the last few days. I'm not sure when they were even taken. I almost always back into parking spots and approach my car from the rear so I didn't even notice anything different with the front of my car. It just makes me mad because now I have to spend money I otherwise wouldn't have to. The new grilles are ordered though and cost $20 per side so that'* atleast some good news!!

JEEZ! What a bunch of BS! Pretty bad when people have to steal something like that.

I don't even know why anyone would steal them, either. Wierd.

Any local members off the Aurora forums? Sounds to me like someone pinpointed where you live and decided to go shopping.

Well....that really stinks. So...do you think they stole them to resell? Honestly, it'* not like 'Rora'* are all over the place like Accords...and at $20 a piece, new, I can't imagine anyone getting rich of of them. Anybody in the neighborhood that has an Aurora that could have been jealous?

I doubt any member of club did it. We have instructions all over on how to do it. The chrome strips literally only cost around $16 to do both grilles.

Doubt it. They're held on by a screw on one side, and three 1-inch wide clips on the inner sides. The inner clips slide into the bumper itself. You'd have to have a LOT of force to even break them, enough that the plastic surrounding the edges of the bumper would be broken. They're not hard to find at all, either. They're readily available and in supply across the country. I already have replacements ordered.
