    That sucks dude
    Hope you find it or are compensated fully for it

    I would imagine a vert wouldn't be that hard to steal, i would imagine using a tow truck of some sort would be the best way.

    On the other hand if someone was familiar with the vats they could probably get it running.

    Can you just hot wire the cars or what? I dont know anything about anything when it comes to stealing. I had the keys the whole time so they had to do something illegal to steal it.

    To the best of my knowledge you have to bypass the vats but you need to know the resistance in the key, but you had that. Then you would have to bypass the ignition cylinder.

    Maybe you had a key under the car in a lockbox and you didn't know it.

    Well I've only had the car for a year and a half and the owner before me kept it scratch free so I guess thats possible.

    I'm sorry for your misfortune. Any car can be stolen, if the thief's willing to go the extra mile to steal it.
