C 63 AMG Owner Left Without Driver's Seat, Steering Wheel And Rear Bench

Among the probably many things which can give a Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG owner a mild heart attack is finding his beloved car with a broken window in the parking lot.

A multiple heart attack is probably what happened to the owner of the C 63 AMG in the adjacent photos after finding his car not only had a shattered window but it also had huge chunks of its interior missing.

The steering wheel, the driver's seat and the rear bench had been taken out of the car via the broken window, making this one of the oddest car-related thefts we have ever encountered.

As it was the story with the Audi RS4 B7 front seats that kept turning up missing from cars around Britain a couple of months ago, the main reason behind this weird type of stealing is not a fetish for high-performance car seats but a strictly-practical one.

In case of the Audi RS4 seats, it seems that the thefts were happening mainly to order, with the parts being required by backyard “tuners” for their own motorized and most definitely cheaper prides and joys.

Part of the so-called “OEM+” tuning subculture – most seats apparently ended up on much less expensive cars from the VAG Group, like Volkswagen Golfs.

We don't know if that is also the case with the odd theft in the C 63 AMG W204 - which apparently happened in Stockholm, Sweden – but it is most definitely a case of the car being written off because of this mess.

We say this because the model is a older W204 non-facelift, so the insurance company most definitely prices it lower or way too close to the cost of replacing the multi-function steering wheel with a two-stage airbag, a front AMG seat with electric controls and heating and the leather-wrapped rear bench.
