Giles Coren i-Pace Stolen, Tracker easily disabled

Post by rcoundon » Sun Apr 11, 2021 8:08 am

Seems to be using a cloned key which I thought was particularly difficult with the way the i-Pace works.

We need to be careful about insurance, companies ask if the vehicle is fitted with a tracker, the IPace is BUT does it comply with that insurance companies requirements AND is the subscription paid up.

If it, or you not compliant they will not pay out if the car is stolen, ouch!.

Serves him right for living in London and being a smug git ;) I assume disabling the tracker is harder on the MY21 unless your rip out the whole infotainment?

He has now retrieved the car. The Police told him where it was parked (by the thieves) and he went and collected it. They had parked it up (probably waiting to see if there was an additional tracker they hadn't disabled).

Well it was not found due to the Tracker (which had been disabled) I think it had been parked in a resident's parking bay who reported it to the Police, so maybe his rant is still justified?

I suppose with writing 3 articles a week for The Times, he probably considered it beneath him to use The Guardian mode.

I was starting to wonder if I am the only one who bothers to use it.
