Attempted Break-In Through Trunk

Just came out from work at dinner time today to see some wanker had shoved a screwdriver into the locking mechanism on the trunk/boot lid and made ****e of it trying to break into my car.

How can I get a replacement that matches my key?

I had some issues with my key(worn) and my ignition lock (probably damaged by the worn key) when I first got my car. When I called the dealer they ordered the new lock and keys by the VIN number and they came pre-cut and pre-programmmed(ignition key) to match the car. I would assume that they can do the same for your trunk lock. Keep us posted.

Sorry to hear about that, and hope you get it sorted.

Can't resist posting this ad though... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NO-HAIRDRE...-/400296034014

Something we all could use maybe?
