    That is just sickening. I hope your insurance gets your car put back together in a hurry.

    He got in thru the broken window and without opening the door stole the transparent roof in 30 seconds. The window came out in a single piece? Doesn't appear to be any damage to the car. The "nest" photo doesn't show the C7 alarm lights, just reflectors.

    This guy has perfected this operation. Betcha he had some way to practice it a few times on a C7 with the window open before he pulled it off. Very specialized. Unique to the C7.

    Assume the cops were called. What did they say? Any other similar reports in the Dallas area?

    Sounds like "Vicky Vette" was raped.

    Sorry to hear about your top being stolen. I also have a 2015 Z51 3LT A8 and have not even given thought to the top being stolen. Now I am going to try to find a deterrent for that happening to mine when away from home. The tracking tag may be an answer but as someone mentioned it would be limited to RF coverage.

    I'm confused by the window sitting outside of the car in basically one piece. Was it somehow cut along the bottom near top edge of door and pulled out ?

    Yea. Pretty confusing incident. If the window was cut at that point, how is it there are no scratches, damage or debris at the top edge of the door?

    Accomplishing that feat with no apparent damage to the car in 30 seconds would qualify the thief for first place in a TV competition reality show.

    I would have certainly called the cops.

    Whoever did it, this car definitely wasn't his first. You can see the edge of the window tinting on at least 2 sides of the glass. So at least those two sides were undisturbed.
