    I just learned how to spell burglars. I've always said burgalurs, but apparently that's one syllable too many??

    Both for the CAT's and the hybrid batteries (likely a lot more so for the latter), the thieve's reward is dwarfed by the damage to the car, to get it repaired properly. :mad:

    You didn't see the smashed glass particles all over the floor?

    This is weird, because I saw the same lady, doing an interview outside with the car, where it showed broken glass inside the car and they reported it would be $8000 to fix because they cut the cables. Now it's a 10k battery and 15k to fix......

    Now I see, the broken glass photos were from news reports in 2015 that were embedded into this new report....Guess I'm off my game today......
