  3. car stolen

    hey guys, theives broke into my car (180sx) about a month ago, drove it to a park, stripped the goodies off and left it on brake discs. In the process they managed to damage the ignition barrel and boot lock. The car still starts by using a flathead screwdriver to turn the back section of the ignition barrel as the key won't turn in the barrel no more. BOth door locks still in tact. What do guys suggest? what are my options? Should i just go to an import wrecker and buy the whole set? ie. ignition barrel + key, driver + passenger door locks, boot lock. OR get the the ignition barrel and boot lock fix how much would i be expected to pay? any feedback is appreciated
