    AMG thefts ?

    Hi all, I’ve just been followed and then pulled over by a very polite policeman, who was checking ownership of my C63. Rather worryingly he told me that thieves are now targeting AMG vehicles. Probably nothing new in that, except that he stated that the thieving scumbags are now able to “key...
