I hate thieves!

I agree with Gumball, I bet someone with the same car thought they were some expensive custom grills. Though they are just the chrome door edge guards, I'm sure they don't look it in person.

I'm glad your car was not damaged!

You need to get a mean a$$ dog to tie up to that car port. Thats really shitty. I'd check around the bottom of the radiator just in case.

While I hate to say it..

A coin op guy was right. If you get something stolen like this and theres almost no damage, putting it on with other things may make it worse if there'* a next time.

The next time, thief may assume how you put it on and do more damage to the car and cut or break the mounting tabs on the bumper.

The part that gets me, is no one could use anything like this unless they had a 2nd gen Aurora, its useless to them.

Keep an eye on ebay.

One good thing about GM dealers is that they get their new parts FAST!! I ordered the new grilles Tuesday night, and the new ones arrived today at the dealer. unbelievable. I picked them up this afternoon and put the chrome on them. the pictures look horrible because it was getting dark outside, and because the flash makes them look black-like stock. ah well. The head-on shot looks pretty mean though.

Time to set up surveilance if you can. The theives may be back for another pair if they happen to see them on again.
